Name: Bonnie Raymond
41 year old female, married to a 39 year old male, mother to three, only my youngest child home full time who is age 16, one 23 year old male son with three children (my grandchildren) that visit each weekend for three days.
Have been reducing waste and practicing localvorism for the last year. This plastic challenge is exactly that a challenge. It is amazing how in the 41 years I have been alive how much has changed to plastic. How much more commercialized things have become.
I want back to the “old ways” no plastic, with reusable containers that are only replaced when they wear out!.
I hope to succeed in reducing my plastic consumption even more than I already have!
