    What did you find out about your plastic consumption by using the calculator? What did or didn't surprise you?

    The hardest part of these items for me is take out containers.  When I go out to eat, I always bring my own container for any leftovers.  However, when ordering take out, that is not an option.  It comes in either plastic, non compostable cardboard and compostable containers.  I can reuse the plastic ones, but they add up and I end up with way more than I can use.  Non compostable just goes in the garbage.  It's not plastic waste but it's still garbage.

    What are the benefits (to people, animals, and the environment) of purchasing clothes made with natural fibers?

    When washing clothes, they shed some of the fabric into the water, then that water goes down the drain.  Synthetic fabrics can shed micro fibers of plastic, which is bad for our water.
