    I am no longer employed but approached my dentist with information about a toothbrush/toothpaste tube recycling drop off site.
  • Reflection Question
    Food Cook a Zero-Plastic Waste Meal
    Do an inventory of your kitchen to see how many single-use plastics you've used in the past. What are some resuable alternatives to these commonly used products? What would your impact be if you switched all the single-use products from your inventory to reusable?

    So, so hard to buy groceries/meat.  I asked for my meat to be wrapped in butcher paper, which the counter person did -- AFTER she wrapped it in plastic.  She announced loudly that she couldn't just wrap in butcher paper.

    I've asked the deli to wrap my items in butcher paper instead of their plastic bags.  One grocery deli will now let me bring in my own reusable containers for meat and cheese
  • Reflection Question
    Food Use a Reusable Mug / Collapsible Cup
    Since the restrictions that COVID-19 has required of our society, trying to use your own cup might present new barriers, as well as new opportunities for creative problem solving. How were you able to achieve success on this action? How can you make it a long-term habit?

    I request my drink in a paper cup.  But most of my stops now will refill my own cup
