Year 2, Week 43 Results: .05 oz of plastic waste… Again!

 


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:

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!

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.

Beth, I love this costume! If you weren't already married, I would set up Fake Plastic Sea Monster with the Chico Bag Man (Jason), who hangs out as a pile of plastic bags at the Green Fest. You two would be quite a pair! :)
