Not pictured - toilet paper, one sanitary napkin and two tampons.

I took a reusable wet towel to the restaurant today for Little Miss O, but I didn't think about cloth napkins - so I shall have to pop those in the bag next time.  I was upset that my soap powder that I sought far and wide for - eco friendly and in a paper bag, came so heavily packaged.  Sigh.  As for the wasabi, is it more eco friendly to carry my own in a larger plastic tube, or just have the single use packets?  Is it possible to find wasabi in paper?  I found cordless unbleached recycled toilet paper, but it does come wrapped in plastic....But then again, so does the stuff with a core.  But then, there is the cardboard box it comes posted in.  Will have to look at the supermarket for cordless to avoid the box. Issues, issues.....
