New Year’s RRResolutions 2019
Here are some of the ideas that TVCR supporters came up with to produce less waste in the upcoming year. Thank you all for sharing and congratulations to Lisie Smith who won the TVCR “sustainability kit” prize drawing.
• My RRResolution is to reduce trash by using reusable containers for food, drink, and shopping. I catch myself too often throwing away ziplock baggies or water bottles after only one use so my goal is to use reusable containers for these items.
• My sister gave me a shampoo bar for Christmas. I’m excited to start using it a no more plastic shampoo bottles!
• I want to use less plastic at the grocery store, especially for produce, so planning re-useable bag alternatives.
• Bring my own containers to the Deli & either have them tare weighted prior to having food placed inside or placed on paper and the price stickered onto the container.
• Purchase inexpensive reusable bags for produce.
• Get reusable sandwich bags for lunches from Barrels and Bins.
• Stop using plastic straws.
• Get some bamboo utensils and stop using plastic utensils. Keep them in my car.
• I wash my plastic ziploc bags (big and small)…have not bought any in a VERY long time!! I want to get better about bringing containers to restaurants for “take out” orders…I can’t stand the foam clam shell containers!! They should not be allowed in areas that don’t simultaneously allow recycling of the same material…that is a no-brainer…
• No more grocery sushi till the plastic tray is bamboo
• To always remember my reusable bags when I shop!
• Recycle my daily use contact lens, blister packs and packaging to Teton Valley Vision Clinic
• Reduce daily paper towel usage on our TV trays, (at least 6 per meal) by using place mats and cloth napkins.
• Re-use the plastic bags that the JH Daily comes in to become doggy waste bags.
• Pester everyone I know to participate in the Terracycle local waste reduction programs
• My RRResoution is to bring my own ceramic mug to fill at my favorite cafe instead of drinking out of their plastic/paper cups.
