    Climate & Ecosystems Reduce Single-Use Plastics
    What plastic or single-use items do you regularly use? What did you substitute or could be substituted?

    The single-use plastic items I have used the most are plastic baggies.  We've looked into way of using re-usable items like containers instead of the single-use item.

    Do you have any tips for others on finding locations that accept products for safe disposal?

    Luckily, finding out how to dispose of prescription medicines is easy since it is just a quick Google search.  Having these medicines properly disposed of is important so the medicines don't end up in a landfill potentially leaching the chemicals  into the ground.

    What was it like to create a readiness plan? Did you find other resources you could share?

    It was a straight forward process and the type of thing everyone probably already has thought a little about.  Having a plan laid out makes it easy for the entire family to understand what needs to happen during an emergency.  Ready.gov is a great site to help organize and document emergency plans.
