One of the things I love about living in Panama and being a locavore. Our waste is greatly reduced by using my own canvas bags when shopping for veggies and other groceries and recycling egg cartons when I buy my fresh organic eggs. I cannot remember the last time I had a piece of styrofoam
in my kitchen. Unfortunately we are required to use plastic bags to bag and put out the garbage but that's not too bad. Composting all the organics, recycling the beer and wine bottles and all plastics is not hard at all. Now I just need to work on eliminating those bags from the meat purchases out of our lives and stop using the baggies for some of my storage.
New Rule: Every time I leave the house I will have my canvas bags with me - just in case.
