Just so you know, my scale will only weigh in increments of .1 oz. For the past two weeks, it has measured my plastic waste at 0.00, so I am guessing at .05 because I know that reality is somewhere between 0.00 and .1.
The full tally for last week:
- Plastic baggies of nuts and bolts for my Fake Plastic Fish display. I’ve spent all weekend getting ready to table at Oakland’s Earth Expo this Wednesday. Normally, I would use Green Sangha’s Rethinking Plastics display. But this week, it’s not available. So I made my own!
Saturday, I created a 4-panel display board using the front of an old door that Michael found, hinges from Ohmega Salvage (after spending an unsuccessful hour searching through bins of hinges at Urban Ore), and non-toxic zero-VOC stain from Eco Home Improvement. The only new parts were the nuts and bolts which came in little plastic baggies.
Then, I spent yesterday creating my Fake Plastic Sea Monster costume:
Okay, gotta get back to work! I can’t do much with a blank display board. Today, I’m creating the pictures and text that will go on the display and picking up donated items for the giveaway basket.
Oh, yeah. There’s a drawing for a plastic-free alternatives kit. So if you are available on Wednesday between 10am and 2pm, come down to Oakland’s City Hall and visit me!
