I reuse glass bottles for water bottles; I use my own reusable market bags; I store leftovers in glass baking dishes, but even these have plastic lids. The things I find difficult are the groceries I purchase: sour cream comes in plastic; most yogurt come in plastic (I've found 1 brand in a jar); bread, tortillas, chips, crackers all come in plastic; most produce: berries, lettuce, carrots, etc. come in some form of plastic.
Has anyone found solutions to these other than making your own?
Thanks for posting this Destiny. I'd really like to reduce my plastic even more.
When buying groceries you can at least bring back plastic bags to reuse for produce. (Like berries)
You can make your shops more aware by leaving packaging in the store. You have to be quite charming to accomplish this.

Oh yeah ... we came through there just Friday last week. Spent a few days in Chetumal. We have another permie friend just this side of Vallodolid on the Cancun / Merida road.
Soon there will be enough of us to have a get together.
