I try very hard to reuse and recycle. A few years ago I started using glass jars for cook ahead lunches and snacks. First it was soup, made in big batches and frozen in single serving sizes. Lately I am using jars for every thing from snacks to yogurt to chicken salad. At the end of October, I made a personal p,eadge to have a no waste November. That works well for taking my lunch but then there are my daily stops for coffee. I have grown fond of the call ahead orders at the big green coffee shop. This month I am committing to taking my travel mug so no call ahead for me. I had quite an internal argument this weekend. I left my travel mug at home – should I make an exception? Did I really need another cup of coffee? I went back and forth h for a good hour while I ran errands. My no waste pledge won out. I made a cup of anti-inflammatory hot cocoa when I got home. Seven days in and I have stayed true to my pledge – no throw away cups or bags. Only 23 days to go. Better wash some more jars.
