    We are nearing the final week of the challenge! Don't forget that one of the team members with the highest points will win a prize (worth $50!) to help reduce plastic use in daily life. Keep reaching those goals! And thank you so much for helping us address the issue of waste with this challenge.

    I am constantly sharing and keeping the plastics issue on my websites and social media to remind folks to refuse, reduce, reuse, recycle, and rot.

    As much as I try to stem the flow of plastics into my home it isn't easy when others don't see a problem with items that help them.

    Several items are not worn out enough to replace.  Some items I am continuing to research.
