Atoning for wastefulness

I'm putting my money where my mouth is:  I've finally decided to cut back on my use of disposables, and have already bought a metal fork, knife, and spoon for use at the office.  Next on the list is a mug.  Unfortunately, I don't have a good place at the office for storing a plate.  But I did ditch the plastic sandwich bags that I'd been using to carry my blueberries and baby carrots--I'm now using small washable containers instead.  My resolution for the new Jewish year is to try be more respectful of bal tashchit (the prohibition against wastefulness) by being more consistent about sparing the environment.

Shanah Tovah u-M'tukah--have a good and sweet new year.
