First, last week’s tally, and then a follow-up report on a letter I sent couple of weeks ago. Items used this week but purchased before the plastic project began:
Used to attached garbage to Christa’s Bay to Breakers landfill costume  last Sunday. We had it, so we used it.
New plastic waste purchased since the plastic project began:
That’s it for last week.
I also wanted to show you this beautiful card and note I received back from Santa Sabina Retreat Center in response to the letter I sent them on May 7  regarding their use of Synthetic air fresheners and antibacterial hand soap. The note reads:
With thanks for your gentle reminder re: hand soaps, air fresheners. We have changed to natural soaps and Ecco-mist [and something about green awareness that I can't make out.]
Harriet Hope and Susannah
What a nice reminder to me that “gentle reminders” are often the best way to approach people before stronger measures are taken.
