I’m crunched for time today. Working on computer issues at work (remotely) and computer issues at home. So here’s the quick tally for the week. I worked on something special this weekend. Some of my Facebook [1] and Twitter [2] friends have already seen it. I’ll post it here tomorrow.

Oh, and Mrs. Bell … you are a LaundryTree winner [3]. I posted a comment on your blog. I need you to email me [4] your mailing address.

Here’s the tally. Plastic acquired before the plastic project began:

  • Plastic baggie around an old obsolete instruction manual. Found while organizing my bookshelf.

And here’s the new plastic waste:

  • Plastic cling wrap. Oh, this stuff is the worst! I was in downtown San Francisco and ordered a sandwich at a deli I’d never been to before. I handed them my stainless steel LunchBot container and asked for my sandwich to be placed inside it. Then, I stopped paying attention. Of course, when I got the sandwich back, it was wrapped in paper, which was wrapped in plastic cling wrap, inside my container. Sometimes, you have to S.P.E.L.L. I.T. O.U.T.
  • Plastic envelope window. A payment from BlogHer for my little guest editing gig. I should ask them if they do direct deposit or Paypal.
  • Plastic label from a pair of pants I bought in January [5]. Somehow I missed this one.
  • Plastic packing tape from a delivery of GlassDharma [6] straws. I know David will switch to paper tape when he’s used up the plastic. Why do I keep getting these straws? To give them away, of course!

That’s it. If you haven’t entered the Earth Day Less Plastic Pledge Giveaway [7], there is still time.

And if you just want to have some mindless educational fun (mindless AND educational?), check out this U.S. States online puzzle [8]. It’ll hook you!
