    I went camping with friends, I told them we needed to go plastic free for this trip. We had 2 5-gallon water and filled our water bottles. We also brought our own utensils from home. The only thing we had in a plastic bottle was the coffee. For the oil, I used a glass container I had at home. Which I will save for my camping trip.

    I've learned that plastic is everywhere and polluting even our bodies.

    It's going great. I am very glad I joined the challenge as I have learned so much about plastics and that bioplastics are not the panacea I thought. I will keep educating myself, pass my new knowledge to my friends and family and practice what I've learned
