    Last day of the challenge and I completed all of my challenges! The waste audit was tough. Plastic packaging is a nightmare! I need more bulk purchasing options!

    We are down to the wire! Plastic Free July ends in 3 days! Who is going to continue their plastic free lifestyle?!

    We are in the home stretch!  If you are starting to find the daily challenges...not so challenging anymore...yippee!  Take it one step further and do a one-time challenge that may take you out of your comfort zone!

    So proud of my hubby today...he told the waitress to take the straw back, he didn't need it!

    FYI... airports are a bad place when trying to be plastic free! Urgh!

    Asking for "no straw" and getting one anyway, already in the drink, is very annoying!
