    Luckily I live in a place where most plastic shopping bags have been banned. Though it was an adjustment at first, bringing my own reusable bags is now second nature.

    Rather than purchase my daily coffee ready-made, I take advantage of the coffee machine at work and also make my own coffee at home. This allows me the freedom to continue to use my own reusable mugs and cups.
