We eat out frequently. As soon as I sit down I tell them to bring our drinks without straws and stress we don't want to make trash. I bring my own tupperware for leftovers, and I proudly put it on the table for others to see, so they get the idea. I always stress food stays fresher and no trash. Many will like the idea cause food stays fresher. The ladies at the Chinese restaurant love it. We bring our own spoon that I keep in a bag in my purse to use for ice cream or only order in a cone. I also keep Jamba juice mugs, the kind you purchase to fill with water at McDonald's etc. Jamba juice gladly fills them with their smoothies. I hate fast food, but hubby still goes so I teach kids to order items in the lease amount of packaging and use our own cups.
