Plastic Free July – Be Part of the Solution Join millions of people reducing their plastic waste. Plastic Free July is a global movement that helps millions of people be part of the solution to plastic pollution – so we can have cleaner streets, oceans, and beautiful communities. www.plasticfreejuly.org If you are interesting in making reusable bags, I made a short video with basic instructions.
Share pictures of your plastic free July and let me know if you make a bag!
From Judy Sanders, Council Webmaster: This soup is perfect for making in the Instant Pot! Set it up and walk away while the pot does all the work. You can add meat (it’s the perfect way to use up a ham and bone leftover from the holidays) or it’s just as good meatless. Add all the veggies you like – last time I made it I threw in handfuls of swiss chard I had on hand.
From Council President Audra Frigon - Taco Tuesday never looked better!
