    It was little hard to learn bulk shopping.  Now, I have reusable bags and I  buy almost everything from Lakewinds co-op. I feel good when I don't have plastic waste. There is no way for me to go back. I know the link between plastic in our drinks, food and obesity. Plastic is everywhere and is "a well-known endocrine-disrupting chemical that harms human health by interfering with the body's hormones". Please think about your health and your children's health when you eat and especially heat your food in the plastic container. Some can think it is expensive to shop this way, but when you buy a clean good quality product from a co-op, you respect the people growing them. You respect the energy you give while you are shopping and cooking them and you don't waste. It is a win win.
