Well, it was a plastic-filled week, as you can see. Please read through to the bottom of this post to find out the winners of the LaundryTree soapnuts giveaway !
The tally for last week included all new plastic waste:
That doesn’t mean I didn’t care about the plastic. First of all, I chose the smallest camera I could find. Check it out. This thing is the size of a credit card and will easily fit in my pocket. (I took this photo with my cell phone and had to doctor it in Photoshop to make it as sharp as it is.)
The camera comes in a small cardboard box with molded paper dividers. No Styrofoam or hard plastic. Unfortunately, each component is protected by its own plastic baggie: camera, battery, battery charger, cables, and even the wrist strap. But compared to the overpackaging of many electronics, I feel like I did pretty well.
Well, that’s the tally. And now for the LaundryTree Winners!
Congratulations! If you have won, please contact me  with your mailing address.
If you didn’t win, I plan to have another (little) giveaway on Earth Day. Please check back.
