    I use Ziploc bags a lot because I put snacks in them. Another thing I use is soda bottles because I like to drink soda. Finally, Tape is a big thing that I use because it is very helpful.

      How can you help to substitute or elimanate these plastics? For example, use a sandwich container instead of putting a sandwich in a Ziploc bag each day.

      I skipped using straws in my drinks, instead I substitute it with bamboo straws or rice straws.

    By spending more time outdoors you can get comfortable with everything around you. Things I smelt outside were grass and mud. Some thing I saw was mostly fog.
