    I learned that it's really mindlessly easy to accept plastic bags. I failed a couple days because I just wasn't paying attention. Overall, I think I did a pretty decent job of rejecting offers for bags.

      I think the US could do better and follow suit and charge per bag like places in Europe are doing.

    I've done really well avoiding refined sugar.  It has also made me more aware of eating for no other reason than boredom.  It is heading into the holiday season.  I am going to try to keep up my Eco Challenges: avoid refined sugar, track my purchases, avoid disposables, exercise 30 minutes every day.  And most importantly, be grateful every day and look for someone to send an appreciation email.

    Unavoidable to eat out every meal while traveling, but finding some vegetarian options, and restaurants using local ingredients to lessen the impact.

      Did you make more of a point to avoid fast food restaurants?  We went out one day and I realized casual dining would have used real plates and silverware rather than the disposables.  Hadn't really ever thought about it that way.  :)
