    I'm being more aware of buying only what I need and recycling my textiles too.

    It has made me more aware of litter on the side of the road and in my general landscape. I was able to visit Captain Trash Wheel and Mr. Trash Wheel back in June and saw just how much litter makes its way to the Inner Harbor and it was truly eye-opening. It's so important that we make sure trash gets to the proper place so it doesn't end up in...

    I read the article about using your food scraps in creative ways so many are not put in the landfill. I already use my chicken bones to make broth but it gave me ideas about many other ways to use food scraps.

    Bought sweet corn from a local market stand. No plastic and fresh!

    Finding damaged clothes recycling option was good to learn about.

    Here I am, embracing imperfection. I have cats and they use litter boxes. Getting litter requires using plastic. I have reusable containers and order 40 lb. bags from Chewy so I can transfer litter from the bags to the 16 lb. containers. Easier to carry around and the only waste is the empty plastic bag that I use for trash. Kind of a win.

    The benefit of using travel sized containers and refilling them with my own products is that if I am flying, I can get through security without checking my bag. It also means I have my own products without the worry of space hogging full sized supplies. I also know that I am helping keeping unnecessary plastics out of the landfills.
