    When I used to bring home leftover from eating out, I would always transfer the food out of the plastic/styro containers and to my own. Today, I brought containers when we ate out to avoid using disposable containers for leftovers. Added bonus is it goes straight to fridge without need to transfer and also to waste the disposable containers. One small action at a time.   
  • Reflection Question
    Waste Use Reusable Bags
    What do you do if you find yourself in the situation of needing a bag for items but don't have a reusable one with you or aren't allowed to use the one you brought? Carry things out in your hands? In a cart? Accept a disposable one? If you find yourself in this position often, what system could you put in place to try to create a successful habit of not using plastic bags?

    While I still need to determine a plan how to resolve take out container waste, I have committed to turning down plastic bags when I take out food. In groceries, it stays in the cart and I always have a box or bag in my car.

    Practicing gratitude grounds me to appreciate and acknowledge how blessed I am. And in knowing how blessed I am, I want other people to realize everyday that they are blessed no matter what challenges they are facing at the time.
