    Continuing to utilize my reusable produce bags, reusable straws and bringing my own bags to stores. It really helps keeping these items in your car and accessible at home.

    Feeling empowered by participating in Plastic Free July! Grocery shopping was easier than I anticipated and used all reusable tote bags & produce bags. Took my own cup/straw to lunch! :D
