    There are many Drive Electric for Earth Day events, including one in Winchester (Laraway Parking lot, Town Green) and Concord (The Old Manse, 269 Monument St) happening this weekend.  Here is the website to search for locations: I'd like to check it out.

    “Best if Used By (or Before)” date suggests eating the product before the date for the best possible quality. “Sell-By” date suggest you buy the product before the printed date, but it doesn’t mean that product has spoiled…yet. “Use-By” is self explanatory. Basically the last date to use the product at the peak of quality.

    I try not to use plastic utensils though sometimes when you order takeout online you do not realize that they will give it to you anyway.  I'm trying to remember to recycle my plastic vegetable bags and bring them to the grocery store with me.  I do buy single use yogurt so am trying to buy larger containers to reduce the impact.

    This is super hard.  It's one thing to try to bring your water bottle with you and to buy powdered detergent instead of liquid in plastic jugs, but plastic is everywhere and it can be exhausting.  I was away for a couple of days and thought it was great that I refused the plastic bag at the deli where I was getting lunch (I had brought my own)...

    Experiences!  Travel! Time spent with friends and family!  The "stuff" battle can be hard - I need to constantly remind myself that the first "R" is "Reduce".  If I don't buy it in the first place, I won't need to Reuse or Recycle it.

    I get so much much junk mail.  Most times I just recycle it, but when I have more time, like on a Saturday, I will call the various catalogues that I receive and ask to be removed from their mailing list.  I do have to stay on top of this - I've asked many vendors to remove me from their lists, but discover that the mail will stop for awhile...
