What items can I easily replace with plastic free or less plastic alternatives?
The bars. I was low on food this week and kept reaching into my emergency kit when desperate for a snack.
What items would I be willing to give up if a plastic free alternative doesn’t exist?
Packaged graham crackers- only 1 more pack in my stockpile and then I will make my own.
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 cooking from scratch; keep a permanent set of utensils in my purse for unplanned meals out.
What one plastic item am I willing to give up or replace this week?
What other conclusions, if any, can I draw?
