We just want to know how everyone is doing their part, even in the smallest way, so we can learn from one another.

We’ve been making a lot of changes over time and plan to continue to improve our habits. Some of the things we’re doing are using: wooden Q-tips, shampoo bars, cloth makeup remover pads, bamboo toothbrushes and toothpaste tabs, and reusable paper towels. I stopped buying one use plastic storage bags and always bring bags to the grocery store. It feels good to be part of a movement to help the planet.

We use old plastic produce and grocery bags as poop bags on walks with our dog. We’re now in the habit of bringing reusable bags to the store, but still have a stockpile of old ones.

I carry a bamboo knife, fork, spoon, straw and chopsticks in a canvas pouch everywhere I go, so I never have to use disposable utensils when I’m on the go.
