    I definitely still use produce bags from the grocery store. I guess I could get something fabric but that extra weight would add up. I don't know of a good alternative.

    I'm pretty sure reduce is the most important one. It always has a carbon output of 0, whereas the others are still consuming something in some form. So, to do more reducing, you just have to cut habits out.

    I've been water bottle only for years. The biggest initial barrier I remember was regularly cleaning it. Pro tip: Use denture tablets
