    I now pay attention to those clothing brands that are eco-friendly, recently purchased slippers that are washable, also  washable sneakers, Allbirds is a great brand, my son wears them as well.

    We got rid of all our plastic straws years ago, now use only stainless steel, and we try to avoid restaurants that still use plastic straws, gotta give Starbucks cred for eliminating straws.

    I've always tried to read the plastic identification codes on the bottom of plastic items, recently got take-out that came in a plastic container (difficult to avoid) and the code was #5 so it was recyclable, I try to avoid ordering from restaurants that don't use #1 #2 or #5.

    The weather is great, feels like spring, cleaned out my composting area today, composting is a great way to reduce plastic use!

    Instead of using K-cup Pods in my Keurig, even my compostable ones, I often use my Ekobrew reusable filter, filling it with my own coffee and so avoiding purchasing pods at all.

    When I walk my dog in areas that require waste be picked up, I use biodegradable doggie bags that are vegetable/plant based and are compostable.

    I own a Keurig coffee maker, don't really use it much but when I do, I use 100% compostable pods with paper tops instead of the regular pods, OneCoffee is a good brand.

    Rather than dryer sheets, I have been using 100% wool dryer balls, have been using them for at least 10 years, love them!
