    Last day of plastic free July.  Planning to keep up the trash collection on a regular basis when I walk from the garage to work.

    Another PFJ in the books. My goals for the rest of the year are to continue curbing any excess spending that results in plastic waste and continuing to spread the word!

    It's alarming how much unnecessary plastic is used in the produce section alone. I try to set an example with my reusable mesh produce bags, and was encouraged on a recent grocery run when someone asked me how well they worked - hopefully I convinced them to make the switch.

    I hate shopping in general, but at least when it's secondhand shopping, I can feel good knowing that I'm avoiding sending something into a landfill.

    This one just required some planning, but after that was very easy to do. Brought our own snacks on a recent road trip to minimize plastic packaging and ended up saving money by avoiding the price-gouging of rest stations on the road.
