    We watched the plastic wars and it was so depressing. It really made me wonder if it’s worth recycling. I am really going to think hard about replacing certain items and pay much closer attention to what I purchase. I look forward to being able to shop in person again so that I can choose products based on packaging.

    Besides having access to fresh herbs and vegetables, what benefits will you see from growing your own garden?

    I’m learning so much and paying much more attention to all of the plastic we use in our house. I’m excited to try new plastic-free products when it comes time to replace those products.

    I did a similar challenge back in May and learned so much! I’m hoping to continue to take small steps that will keep helping me decreasing the amount of waste our family produces.

    This activity highlighted how much plastic we go through with our family’s personal care items as well as food containers!☹️I need to get others on board with bar shampoos, etc and this is making me serious consider toothpaste tabs. Some items are easier to control than others.
