    Plastic was a cheap option for companies. There is zero reason to buy razors that dull after a few weeks of use. It's cheap in the short term but no other purpose.

    Its It's cheap and easy for companies to put their products in plastic. There was never a need for plastic packaging for produce. It was just convenient for the company

    The easiest thing we did was switch from plastic trash bags to paper. We just didn't think to do this before Eco Challenge. On the other hand, it is my observation that a fair number of the eco friendly solutions are currently niche markets and it takes a more focused effort to pay extra, plan ahead and order delivery and just compare product...

    The True Cost. Learned all about fast fashion and how cheap "trendy" clothing that goes out of style in a year is a huge detriment to not only the Earth, but resources and safety of the workers.

    Refusing disposables when picking up food. Stashing reusable cutlery in my office, car, and purse. At work I think the biggest hurdle is finding funding for dish soap and sponges so we can wash our reusable forks, spoons, and knives!

    Congratulations to everyone who made it through the month! Each thing that each of us learned and each bit of influence we may have had on someone else ALL contributes to moving us forward to a plastic-free, minimal waste, sustainable world. Lets keep it up! 🌎
