Plastic Challenge: Kelsey Sharp, Week 1

I only ate two nut/granola bars this week, but most of my plastic waste usually comes from individually-wrapped snacks. I know I can make my own bars and such, so I would like suggestions on where to find healthy snack recipes! Location:Santa Cruz, California, United States

Plastic Challenge: Rebeca Irigoyen, Week 1

Is there a place where I can get yogurt, cheese and sour cream that does not come in a plastic container or wrapped in plastic (cheese)? Also, I use a lot of sandwich bags to keep my veggies “fresh”, is there an alternative to using plastic bags for that? Location:Santa Cruz, California, United States
