    Food packages are a major one, meat, snacks, and ingredients, all come in plastic.  Bottles for soda and water are probably what I use second-most. Then packaging for other things like bubble wrap when you buy anything from the store other than the food comes in some sort of packaging.

      What could you do to try and substitute single use packages? For example, instead of buying single packs of goldfish crackers, you would buy in bulk and then pour some into a reuseable container.

    Can help you pick new details and learn more about your surroundings. We went to places I've already been and it's at school nothing too exciting.
