We have glass dishes in our studio and flatware is not plastic. We put in glass shower doors rather than plastic. I did put in cloth bags for a while for shopping instead of phasing them buy plastic bags but no one seemed to use them. I may consider now putting a bit of literature on “4ocean” which is a place to donate to a get a bracelet. We are on the Coast of CA. Thx of the ideas.
