What lifestyle change(s) might be necessary to reduce my plastic consumption?
I bought a stainless steel bottle for the lunch of my little boy. I have to find juice with no plastic packaging or made them.
I ask the butcher of the grocery to wrap sliced ham in paper…. but they have only plastic packaging! I’m not ready to bring my own containers…. I’ll have to find another butcher….
