    I will be able to see where my food comes from.  Won't buy vegies in all that plastic.   I will feel healthier by eating food that I have grown.

    I use natural fiber sponges to clean and scrub.   I am very happen not using plastic sponges or wipes any longer.   I never thought about it before, but that sponge was turning into micro-plastics and contributing to the plastic problem.

    Washed plastic bags and hung up to dry to re-use again.  Used natural sponge and baking soda to scrub my sink sparking clean!

    I used one of my grandmother's recipes! She had so many great recipes that I just need to prioritize and make them apart of my meal preps.

    Has separating your plastic bags for recycling helped you identify how you might reduce how many you have? What are you doing differently now?

    I wash my bags and reuse them.  I sort into 3 types:  Recycle,  Trash Bags,  Food Bags.  I made a 3 pocket station to keep them organized.

    At Home Reuse Trash Bags Instead of Purchasing New
    What are some of the challenges or benefits you have experienced using reused bags instead of a bag purposely designed to hold trash?

    Holes in the bags.  Need to check first.  If they are too holey, they get recycled instead.

    Stopped using them years ago.  They are nothing but chemical covered plastic.  Use wool balls if you need dryer balls.
