Creation Care Tip of the Week

Track Your Use of Paper and Disposable Products

This week, watch how much you use paper plates, disposable utensils, and straws. See what of those items you can replace with reusable Tupperware and flatware that you can take with you. The Brant “TO GO WARE” sells reusable bamboo forks, spoons, and knives. You can keep this in your car, purse, or backpack to use at a moment’s notice.
