Year 2, Week 38 Results: .4 oz of plastic waste.


It’s 4:30am and I’m still up. So this tally post will be very short. All new plastic again this week:

  • Packing tape from a package my dad sent. A late birthday present.
  • Plastic bubble wrap bag from same Dad package.
  • 2 plastic envelope windows. Both Financial West Group.

That’s it.

Tomorrow, I’ll announce the winner of the Lunchbots Duo. Stay tuned.

A Note about leaving comments: I switched to the LifeFyre comment system because it weeds out the hundreds of spam comments I was getting each day and also allows us to respond to individual comments, to "Like" comments, and to link them to social media if we so desire. But if you do not wish to login via social media, you don't have to. You can comment without logging in! Here's how:

  1. Type your comment in the box.
  2. Click "Post Comment As" button.
  3. When the LiveFyre box pops up, type a name, email address, and optional website address in the fields provided.
  4. Click Next.
  5. LiveFyre will ask you for a user name and password. But if you don't want to register or use a password, you don't have to. Just click "Post as Guest" which is to the left of the black "Finish" button. Your comment will be saved.
  6. Please email me if you have questions or problems. This new system is supposed to make it easier for all of us to converse, not harder.

We've been getting a lot of bubble wrap at work and those damn plastic packing air pillows too. You probably already know this but I'm going to say it anyway, the UPS store will take the bubble wrap for reuse and Kinko's/Fed Ex said they would take the air pillows. I first posted the packing materials on Craig's list for free and a kind person gave me the info. above with the stipulation I pass it on. Which I am repeatedly.

I'm sure I would be upset with myself if I saved all my plastic waste from a week. At least it's getting smaller and even my plastic recycling has gone way down.I thought I was up late last night! Hope you got to sleep in!
