Dear Tea Readers,

I'm looking ahead to 2020, and I would like to lessen my own carbon footprint. I'm trying to live more sustainable. What are the ways you'll try to be more "green"? Let me know here. I think the first thing I will start with is those plastic bags! I have so many recycle bags, and I need to start taking them everywhere. How about you?

Hi Mary,

I've resolved to use less plastic. I've started bringing my own bags to the grocery store. If I only buy a few items at the drugstore, I just throw them in my purse. I also bought some stainless steel straws and buy coffee drinks in aluminum cans. It is really awful to hear about ocean creatures who wash up on the shore with over 50 lbs. of plastic in their stomachs.

If anyone has more tips, please post!

Thanks for making the effort to reduce your footprint and I'd like to join you on this journey. I made this switch too because of what we are doing to the oceans. While in Mexico, I came across a beached whale with its flukes tied in plastic fishing nets. I'm not kidding when I say I heard my heart snapped in two. Since then, I've stopped using body wash and made a return to bar soap. Instead of Venus legs, I switched to a stainless steel razor, and use bamboo toothbrushes. These are small changes that really don't impact my life, and less is more. Thanks for your effort to reduce. It's appreciated.
