Before I get on with the week’s plastic tally, the random winner of the 2009 Earth Day Less Plastic Pledge Giveaway  is: Sharonus. Please contact me  with your mailing address. You will receive two beautiful GlassDharma  drinking straws as well as two ChicoBags kindly donated for this contest by Alline of Milkweed Mercantile who blogs at A Passion For Green Business . You won’t forget and leave your ChicoBags in the car if you carry them in your purse or backpack!
