What items can I easily replace with plastic free or less plastic alternatives?
I think that I reached a limit difficult to exceed….. I don’t know if I can reduce more….

What items would I be willing to give up if a plastic free alternative doesn’t exist?

What items are essential and seem to have no plastic-free alternative?

What lifestyle change(s) might be necessary to reduce my plastic consumption?
I am lacking time to make the other actions… I’ll have to think about how to buy and where to buy cheese, bread, meat…..

What one plastic item am I willing to give up or replace this week?

What other conclusions, if any, can I draw?
