    Went to LIDL last night and had to make some hard decisions.  I didn't buy the green peppers because they were on a single-use plastic tray wrapped in plastic.

    Today, I'm gonna make plastic free (and vegan) potato salad for the 4th with potatoes my dad grew, vegan aioli (made with aquafaba), and mustard from a glass jar. Not perfect, but baby steps in the right direction! How are you guys getting ready for the 4th?!

    WELP. Last night I bought a cannoli from the Harris Teeter bakery, and they gave it to me in a HUGE plastic container. Like, that container could have fit 6 cannolis. Anyway, that container will soon be given a second life as a seed-sprouting container. I've decided to try my best this year but not be too hard on myself if I don't do everything...
