"Support a cause that stands for something you believe in"

Hmm.......... well apparently the UK government has just agreed to ban all plastic straws, stirrers and cotton buds. Microbeads are already banned. This is some good news amongst all the bad stuff. I believe in cutting out unnecessary plastics.

Tomorrow we have to VOTE for our MEP (Member of the European Parliament) at the same time as the process for leaving the EU continues..................... to drag on unresolved!

I'll be voting. Guess this isn't the right place to show my colours - those of you who know me a bit will probably guess right anyway! I believe in democracy.

I've been buying my veg, as much as possible, from the local organic supplier - it's more expensive, and not always grown in the UK, but I want to support them as they are surrounded by the supermarkets and high-street chains - it's not easy. I've also bought a ready-made salad box for lunch from them - it's a wonderfully tasty and nutritious mix, served in a plant-based container. If I need a fork, there's a wooden one available - but I take my own from home when I can. I believe in organic food.

Today I put some money in the busker's hat too - we have some really great buskers here - they deserve to be paid for the music they provide. I believe in music.

Today I gave my time to interact with some of my immediate neighbours. I believe in community.

    Thank you for doing what you can. I believe that if we all just did a little bit at least, things will get better

    I voted too but postal vote but it does make us wonder if there really is a point to it as nothing seems to be getting sorted about Brexit! emoticon

    I tend to still buy prepackaged fruit as its more economical but want to reduce my plastic!

    You made great work of today's challenge woman. emoticon

    Many plastics have been banned where we reside (California, USA) too. Had a great chat with a neighbor yesterday after noticing a delivery to their home the day before from imperfect.com. I love their concept! Found out that organic CSA boxes are available too. We already have a CSA box delivered once a week. We may give this other service a go too. I love that they're doing their part to reduce food waste.

    Dealing with Brexit has to be very challenging. I wish you Brits the best!
