    On this final day of the Ecochallenge I went on my last trash walk around my neighborhood. I found a neighbor’s month-old newspaper in its bag under a bush, so I used it to collect pieces of trash. I used my paper bag to store sweet potatoes instead.

    I went for another neighborhood trash walk today. Lo & behold, I found another unused doggie waste bag on my route - what a funny coincidence!

    I went for another neighborhood walk today & found an unused dog waste bag. I used it to collect the little bits of trash along my route.

    I got the opportunity to walk around my neighborhood today so I picked up some trash. The first item was a plastic newspaper bag so I used it as my collection bag instead of the paper bag I brought along.

    Okay, so much plastic for no reason, I noticed if I want to reduce my plastic it means having to buy certain things and not others. For example I love oranges but they come in a bag at ALDI so I have to make a choice.

    Okay right now this is hard because you know COVID and not being able to bring our bags in. HOWEVER, I make an effort to remember to say no bag and just bring the cart out to my car and bag them there. Sometimes I forget but I do my best to say no bag.
