So on Monday, I went to a sandwich place for lunch and got a sandwich wrapped in paper and a drink and a cookie in a plastic bag. That night, I went to the movies and got a drink and a package of M&Ms.
I felt. So. Guilty.
Today, I was better; anything disposable I got came in biodegradable cups. (Of course, we had burgers for dinner that come in plastic.) I realized the cup I have that’s stainless steel has a plastic outer shell and I’m worried it will get crunched in my bag. So I should buy one to take with me places for those times when I want soda.
My mother has decided to start saving the plastic mesh bags from oranges and my dad said he should “probably” start keeping re-usable cloth shopping bags in his car. I may have started something.
