    I had a good time talking with a friend today about all the challenges of reducing plastic waste and how we could do much more to decrease it.  It is a big challenge as we really have gotten use to all the conveniences of plastic and how its such a big part of our lives and in so many products we purchase, even clothing!

    We are not thinking of the long term consequences of our actions that pollute.  It seems like a minor impact individually but we have to remember the world population is so large now and most of us have a huge carbon footprint.  We need to take responsibility to ensure that the climate is not irreparably damaged and that pollution is stopped. ...

    This has been a much tougher challenge than I originally thought it would be!  It is so easy to slip up and use single use plastics that could have been avoided.

    I was rushed today and forgot my re-usable coffee mug.  I have to find a good place to put re-usable mugs in our mudroom so I see them on the way out!

    It is nice not to use shopping as entertainment, and even my 'health and safety' purchases are few and far between.  I really reflect on how the purchases will add value to my life and think about their eventual disposal and their environmental cost.
