    Not much more than I already knew, but learned that almost everyone uses too much plastic and thinks it's too much work not to.  Makes me sad.

    I ALMOST BOUGHT A PLASTIC CONTAINER OF CORN STARCH AND THEN NOTED A NON-PLASTIC ALTERNATIVE  WHICH I BOUGHT INSTEAD.  I AM USING BAR SOAP AND WILL CHECK WITH THE COSMETIC STORE "LUSH" IN ROSEDALE WHICH IS REPORTED TO CARRY SHAMPOO IN BAR FORM VS BOTTLES

    I'm using my own mesh bags and reusing the stores plastic bags...feels good.

    I've been reading up on how to properly store cheese and it turns out putting them in plastic wrap isn't even good for cheese.  They like wax paper and parchment paper better, so they can breath - thus reducing molding.

    It's hard to see liter in winter, so I'll have to defer this to after the snow melts.  I will carry a bag in my coat so I have something handy to put liter in.

    I have purchased mesh cloth bags to put fresh produce purchases in At the store. Had not thought of that before.
