    What did you think that Lead Soldiers were made of? Seriously, unless you immediately get them a replacement that is expensively made, good for the environment, and free of toxic chemicals, the children will quickly realize that Living Green" is just a way to deprive them of toys. Be careful to get an exact replacement, children know the difference between a realistic scary movie dinosaur and a pink kiddie cartoon version.

    I hardly eat fast-food, but when I do, I give back the silverware plastic if presented in a drive-thru (as I'm usually going home). Also, any plastic that used, like a salad bowl container, I recycle, even if I eat at the restaurant. I take it all home and clean them, then recycle.

    I try to always bring along a piece of fruit, a bottle of water, and a bag of nuts. I'm not perfect; when I stop for a much-needed coffee or something I'm craving for I try to forgo any extra items like packets, straws, etc. I keep bandanas in my car to use as napkins.

    When purchasing to take home, ask to not have utensils and napkins added. I stopped using straws also, using reusable washable plastic tubing instead.
