You may or may not know that this week, the town of Falmouth passed a law that bans the sale of single-use plastic bottles and those little bottles of alcohol we refer to as "nips."

This year has been one big pile of crazy if you ask me. When I heard about this, I thought, how are they going to actually implement this? Just about everywhere we go, most products we use are in plastic bottles.

Personally, I try to fill my reusable water bottle as often as I can but it's not always possible. So it's either grab a plastic bottle of water or stay thirsty.

It gets stick for me with those little minis we call "nips" that you can get at the liquor store. I'm not a heavy drinker. I like one beverage or maybe two and I'm good. So buying a bottle of something other than wine – which I can easily consume in one sitting – would be silly.

Don't get me wrong, I'm all for saving the environment but before we ban the use of something we have quite literally used for just about everything, we need to come up with a more environmentally safe replacement. We have acclimated to the changing times so much this year, so I'm sure those in Falmouth will make it work and do their part, but before it becomes more widespread, let's have a plan.

Otherwise, yes those are nips in my pant pockets I'm not just happy to see you.
