    I continue to be overwhelmed by how many components of life have plastic imbedded in them.  However, this Challenge has reminded me to not feel like I have to accomplish everything at once, rather to just to committed to being observant, making change (even is seemingly small) and keep moving forward.

    Plastic free meal has been one of the biggest challenges for me.  Not necessarily main ingredients, but the side components...  rice, macaroni, the spices, cheese.  Has me definitely learning more about what my local grocers offer in products and services.

    Definitely a little easier pre-COVID, as far as shopping and not using plastic bags for produce. At least many of our grocery stores are still not allowing reusable bags - either in general or for produce.  Definitely makes me further consider meal planning.

    What a great idea!!  VERY effective!!  And with something that has multi-uses!  Very effective for getting pet hair off of upholstered furniture too.

    Influencing my family to reduce single-use items is one way to influence changes.
