This is such an inspiring thread - I see some ideas I am going to adopt!  A few years ago I committed to reducing plastic, and it blows my mind what I've had to change.  For example, I grow a lot more of my own food now because almost all food - even fresh - requires plastic for transit/storage.  Avoiding dyes - everything from hair color to many clothing/home linen manufacturers - has been another focus because dye is gross for the environment and the people who work with it, but also because it moves in plastic.  The simple practice sorting my recycling at home has also made me more aware of what comes in plastic so I can actively look for alternatives.  And why on earth do restaurants still serve straws?  Infuriating!
