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

    My plastic consumption is much higher than I thought it would be.  Time to seriously curtail take out and examine which products we can purchase in other types of bottles / containers.

      I really want to support local restaurants during COVID, but the take-out containers are definitely a problem.
