I took my own reusable breakfast kit to my schools breakfast club every morning, my Mum made sure to take reusable shopping bags to the store and my Dad took a reusable cup to work with him. The teachers at school asked me why I had my own kit with me, I told them it was for Earth Rangers and they were very interested.

Instead of having a competition, my Dad and I worked together to reduce our single-use plastics as much as possible. We chose to eliminate plastic straws, shopping bags and plastic wrap because we didn’t use the other types of SUPs most of the time anyway. We used re-usable containers for my school lunches and to store leftovers, we used re-usable bags for grocery shopping, and we got either no straws or paper straws in restaurants. It was hard not to buy some groceries in plastic containers, because that is the only way they are sold, but we did choose cardboard egg cartons instead of plastic. We saw on the news that the governments of Canada is thinking of banning some SUPs, and I hope they do.
