Wow. I almost, almost had a plastic-free week. Thursday, we had a special meeting at work, including Chinese food for lunch. I asked that mine please be delivered in a cardboard container instead of Styrofoam. Well, I guess the order-taker understood the “no Styrofoam” part but not the cardboard. While everyone else’s lunch came in a Styrofoam container, mine was packed in a Polypropylene (#5 PP) clamshell. I didn’t even know they made clamshells out of PP!
I couldn’t bring the container home with me because I was leaving directly from work for my retreat, and there was still food inside, so I left it in the refrigerator. I’m sure the food’s been eaten by now and the container tossed. What are ya gonna do?
So that’s my tally for last week. (Like my artwork?)
Thanks to Michael once again for filling in. The retreat was perfect, in the perfectly imperfect way I wrote about a week ago. More on that in a future post. Most of all, I just want to express how profoundly grateful I am to all of you who read this blog and who are doing the best you can to take care of our world. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
