As we become vigilant about cleaning everything we touch we must do the same with our reusable bags, cups, and other items. The overarching message here is the importance of continuing to move forward with a total system overhaul to make using reusables a safe and convenient option.
- Ensure all reusables are properly cleaned prior to use - soap and hot water WILL kill the virus.
- Don’t forget your reusable bags when going grocery shopping for food and essential goods. It’s a good idea to wash them in hot water too.
- Cook more hot meals at home to avoid the plastic take-out containers.
In this time of information overload, focus on science-based information updates from reliable sources CDC keeps an updated list of best practices to stay safe.
