What items can I easily replace with plastic free or less plastic alternatives?
What items are essential and seem to have no plastic-free alternative?
What lifestyle change(s) might be necessary to reduce my plastic consumption?
What one plastic item am I willing to give up or replace this week?
What other conclusions, if any, can I draw?
I’m wondering if meals eaten at restaurants are falsely thought of as “plastic free”?
