    Our camping partners set up a bag for recyclable  items at our camp site, and took it home with them!  Super proud of our group, lots of reusable cups and cutlery used.

    Not a great day...  traveling back from the mountains, eating crappy fast food (ugh!  I feel so gross)., but still no straw!
    And I indulged in a Gatorade....    Tomorrow I will be back on track.

      That's okay!  It's not about perfection, just doing better when you can.  I so hear you about the gross fast food.  Traveling is such a challenge!
