    That was fun, and educational!  I learned that small changes can make a big impact to the world, without altering your day-to-day life too much. Plastic Free July is over, now begins PLASTIC FREE LIFE!!!

    Last day of the challenge, so now begins the REAL challenge... keeping these habits up without the prompting. WE CAN DO IT!!!!!!

    Here's an idea... even though this challenge limits the number of action items you can choose, we can still do the other actions which appeal to us. We may not earn points here, but we'll earn points with the planet. (Wow, that was cheesy...but true!)

    If you can't reuse, at least recycle. I'll carry an empty pop can with me however long it takes to find a recycle bin.

    Down here in the OC where they don’t have the straw ban. But that’s okay, they are still banned in my heart.

    Went to the movie theater and decided to skip the straw...that was more difficult than anticipated (dark theater and trying to watch while drinking). Next time, I'll bring my own metal straw!
