    Trying to make sure I am not given a plastic bag when I don't need one

    Happy Earth Day!

    Took the recycling back today. It took awhile to get in the habit, because we don't have pick up service where I live, we have to take it to the center. But it's become a habit :)

      Good for you.  I'm working on the habit of "refusing" plastic. So far I have my own stainless steel straw, my own bamboo utensils,  my own water bottle, my own coffee cup, my own tea cup.  Still want to get my own left over container to take in the car just in case I need it.  Thanks for the encouragement.
