What items can I easily replace with plastic free or less plastic alternatives?
I’ve been buying walnuts in bulk- this bag is just a leftover.
What items would I be willing to give up if a plastic free alternative doesn’t exist?
none this week
What items are essential and seem to have no plastic-free alternative?
I’m not sure about the Band-Aids- there is probably an alternative but we have a whole drawer of first aid stuff that we won’t use up any time soon so it will be a while before I find out.
What lifestyle change(s) might be necessary to reduce my plastic consumption?
We are getting into farmer’s market season so I should be able to start buying produce without plastic tags.
What one plastic item am I willing to give up or replace this week?
What other conclusions, if any, can I draw?
My lowest weight and numbers yet!
