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

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

Plastic Challenge: Dawn Kearns, Week 1

I know mouthwash is not necessary but I am used to using it. Does anyone have a homemade recipe? Any suggestions for making homemade yogurt? I have heard of people using their ovens and crock pots but haven’t been brave enough to try it yet. Any suggestions for dental floss or a brand that isn’t […]

Plastic Challenge: Hanh Pham, Week 5

What’s a graceful way to explain to people at the check out counter at a coffee shop or restaurant that I’m taking the Plastic Free Challenge so if they could refrain from serving me plastic that it would be appreciated?

I have searched high and low to find one brand that doesn’t contain chlorine, and that is Deer Park. However, Deer Park water only […]
