Another week during which I had zero plastic waste until the weekend. What is it about weekends? Here’s the tally. All items are new since the plastic project began:
…like the back laundry area where we store all sorts of enticing things… recycling, Beth’s plastic collection, shoes, a plastic bag full of yarn…. Michael had constructed a makeshift barrier of cardboard and wood to keep the kitties out of that area. This is what happened when they learned how to push their way through:
They tell us that it is yarn art and that we should praise, pet, and feed them for such powers of creativity. Instead, we rented a Zip Car and went to Urban Ore  last weekend to buy a used bi-fold door and hinges to keep them in the kitchen and out of the back room. Urban Ore  is an awesome place where old pieces of houses and buildings go to find new lives. The door we bought is 100% wood, unlike the vinyl doors offered at Home Depot these days, and actually matches the woodwork we already have. Michael did a great job hanging it.
How long do you think it will take the kitties to scratch a new piece of artwork into the door as they attempt to learn how the gate hook works? How long before they actually do learn to lift the hook and get out? We are taking bets.
