To replace paper towels in our kitchen we have 2 baskets on the counter with towels. There are also some fabric snack bags and wax wraps in their. Got inspired by my friend Alexandra who does this for at least as long as I know her. If they are dirty, they just go in the next wash.
In the back are our rechargeable batteries we use for our headphones.

I love shopping at PCC. Got Salmon put in my container from home. Got some granola from bulk. A free pound of pears in paper. Some bulk carrots to cut up (kids are used to baby carrots, trying to cater). Refilled the yogurt container from bulk. Got some yummy lasagna and tofu in my own containers. Gummibears in cotton snack bag. Milk in deposit glass. Pretzel and bread in paper. It really gets easier every time. Having a couple routines down definitely helps. My favorite is refilling the original store containers with the same stuff from bulk. Oats, maple syrup, honey, olive oil, vinegar, shampoo, flour, peanut butter, bagels, chocolate covered dried fruit, grapes, eggs. We got our plastic trash down significantly.
For November we are trying out going meatless. We still will shop eggs and fish, but no more meat. The entire year we reduced our shopping to 90 % chicken and turkey as meat to further reduce our carbon footprint.
FAO announced 18% of global emission result from livestock people have talked about the climate benefits of reducing meat consumption.
Challenge of family of 4 living the WWMFD ('What would Michael Foster do?') way. Inspired by our friend, the Climate Warrior Michael, we are doing our part to reduce our carbon footprint at least 10 % each year by going plastic free, travel less, being a more mindful consumer.
