    Making more use of silicone storage bags in place of ziplocs and baggies.

    I finally got my grocery store to stop using all those plastic backs for my grocery order. They used to bag each produce item in a plastic bag and put all those bags into yet another plastic bag. Today, nothing but paper except for "wet" items like lettuce. Thank you Byerly's Golden Valley!

      Everytime is prepare my online grocery list I put a special instruction in that says, "Please minimize plastic bags." It finally paid off. I guess persistence is the answer.

    Welcome team members. Not sure how I got to be captain. Anyone else want to lead? I am new to this program. Only my second time checking in. How are you all doing? Would love to have you share your accomplishments, ideas, etc.
