    I also distributed bamboo utensils to my mom and sister last night. Now there's 2 more people not using plastic utensils!

    Used a stainless steel straw at a restaurant last night. The bartender asked me what I put in my glass, and that single question sparked a group conversation about keeping plastics out of the ocean. The folks I was talking to appreciate the information and agreed that plastic straws are not the way to go. One ocean-enthusiast bartender said she hopes her restaurant starts to ban straws the way other companies are.

    Have you ever ended up with a reusable bag that you just didn't like the look of? Or one from a company you don't support or care about? Do you have boring reusable bags from the grocery store? Or even just worn out bags that could use a face lift? I know I've had my fair share of bags that while handy, were not my favorite things to look at or carry around.
    Get crafty with you reusable bags and cover them with something you will love to look at. You'll want to use them more often, and others may start asking you about your awesome reusable bags! I can't take the credit for these - my mom made them - but if anyone is interested in a how-to guide, she would be happy to share.

    So proud of our team members for taking the challenge and doing what they can do to eliminate single use plastics. We are quickly racking up the points and we are so close to being in 15th place (out of 78 teams)! Keep up the good work!
