- Packed a picnic basket full of home made snacks - and purchased some nuts and dried fruit in bulk. I also took bread, peanut butter and jelly - which doesn't require refrigeration
- Took my own shampoo, conditioner, lotion, etc and didn't use the hotel stuff in those tiny disposable bottles
- Carried plenty of thermos style coffee cups and water bottles / reusable cups with me. One is not enough. I need to have enough to fill and then wash later as I can - that way there's never an excuse. And, I often have soda in one cup, water in another, coffee in another. I drive alone and this is how I pass the time!
- Carry my own napkin and straw with me for when I stop to eat somewhere. Yeah, I'm that person.
Yes, I still slip up, but I find that reducing consumption of single use items is much easier if I'm prepared!
