It was an interesting week. Attended a funeral. Ate a whole lot of chocolate. Bought a bike. And began a Vision Quest. Went through a bit of plastic, too. So here’s the tally. Plastic items used this week but purchased before the plastic project began: 1 Sicilia lemon juice bottle and cap. It took over [...]Read the full post.
No Impact Man did it. Life Less Plastic did it. Wait… didn’t I just write this post two days ago? No, because this one my friend Axelle is doing. And a few days ago, I started to do it too. No, we’re not constipated. (Although that is the tagline for the No ‘poo forum.) We’re [...]Read the full post.

No Impact Man did it. Life Less Plastic did it. Sustainable Dave did it. Now I have gone and done it. And in a plastic tube, to boot. Why did I buy toothpaste in the first place? Two reasons.

I believe I’ve received my last DVD, and [...]Read the full post.

So I slept for a few hours and now I’m trying again because I have a lot I want to write about before I [...]Read the full post.
This Week:A Year Ago: What a year it’s been. I’ve given Fake Plastic Fish a little makeover, and I’ve uploaded the year’s worth of plastic tally photos to Flickr, where they can be viewed all together or individually with links to the original blog posts. I’ve learned a lot, but I’m not done yet. Sure, [...]Read the full post.
Last weekend I finally saw the documentary What Would Jesus Buy? on DVD. It follows the crusade of “Reverend Billy” and the “Church of Stop Shopping Gospel Choir” during this past Christmas season as they traveled cross country spreading a message of anti-commercialism, support for local businesses, and hairspray. Well, the hairspray was more method [...]Read the full post.
My friend and co-worker Marika picked up a bar of Pure & Natural soap for me while shopping at Target. Marika is very sweet.
