    I pick up trash

    I am always looking for ways to reduce waste. Whether it’s choosing glass bottles for condiments over plastic, or refusing plastic bags in the stores. I hand-carry spent lithium batteries to an accepting recycler.

    I do my best to always use reusable cloths, silverware, dishes, etc.

    I try to limit paper towel use. I use cotton cloths, old t-shirts, etc. Things that can be washed with the towels used to bath my cool little dog. For outdoor settings, I have invested in bamboo utensils, so they can be washed and reused over, and over. At the end of the day, it cost less overall.

    You can reuse pretty paper plates if they have a smooth finish and are not soaked with grease. Just run them under warm water for a second and wipe dry with towel. When on vacation, we take matching sets of paper plates and napkins and just a few of them can last the whole trip so you are not creating a lot of trash. We also take real silverware and small mugs and stuff it all in a picnic basket. Pretty paper plates are pricey, so get your value out of them. An elderly Yankee lady taught me how to reuse paper plates that just had sandwiches/chips/cake/ etc. on them.
