I have been keeping an eye on things and over the past week here are some of the plastic-avoiding actions I did:
- Refused a plastic lid and straw, went for the paper cup only at dinner on Tuesday
- Refused another straw at lunch on Thursday
- Used my handy dandy reusable bag (I will post about this at another time) at Target, the mall, and the grocery store this week
Side note: I love when I check out at the store and say, “I have my own bag,” and then pull this magical re-usable bag out of my purse. I would say by that by the time the cashier has finished ringing me up, 50% of the time, they have forgotten that I brought my own bag and start to put my things in a plastic bag. I gently have to remind them that I will not be taking their store-provided bag of plastic.
