List of plastic items REFUSED this week. (Yay!)
Plastic bags at the grocery. I usually buy a bottle of water (or two – almost every day) but this week I used my reusable water bottle more than I ever had.
Total items collected: 67
Utensils, food containers, bags/food packaging, honey packets, flossing picks, trashbags, and Q-tips
What items can I easily replace with plastic free or less plastic alternatives?
Food containers, bottles, utensils, and Q-tips.
What items would I be willing to give up if a plastic free alternative doesn’t exist?
I believe there are alternatives for all of them..
What items are essential and seem to have no plastic-free alternative?
What lifestyle change(s) might be necessary to reduce my plastic consumption?
More planning. Not reaching for things out of convenience.
What one plastic item am I willing to give up or replace this week?
Utensils. From now on I will carry a set of silverware in my bag.
What other conclusions, if any, can I draw?
Becoming plastic-free will be challenging, but not impossible :)
