    In our area - collection sites tend to be outside of the metro area, at nearby small towns or suburbs.  This can make it difficult for urban dwellers to responsibly recycle and dispose of hazardous waste.  In Iowa, we have had a 5cent charge for cans and bottles but our grocery chains no longer want to be collection sites and I can foresee this...

    I chew gum as a way to control cravings between meals or if skipping a meal during a hectic work day but had no idea that gum base contained environmentally-harmful plastics. This has given me a chance to seek out chicle based alternatives!

    Until I did some quick research, I hadn't considered the impact of using plastic brushes.  Bamboo is cool and more sustainable and it also feels really good in your hand so I am probably brushing longer.  My dentist would approve!

    Shopping garage sales for fun jewelry/purses and accessories can repurpose/ update our "look" and reduce the amount of items we take to Goodwill and other collection sites.

    Though our household has become smaller with children grown - we should go back to purchasing items in larger, refillable containers again to reduce plastic containers from laundry, cleaning supplies and gardening supplies.

    I have really enjoyed the challenge to reduce single use plastics. It has sparked lively family discussion!
