Basilbias- Week Number Five

plasticwk5 002sm

Soy Milk Container
It turns out that vegan mayonnaise is a cinch to make from scratch!

Windowed Envelope

DVD Wrapper
From Juno, which my friend bought me for my birthday. I own about eight DVDs total; all of them were gifts.

Produce Tape

Lemon Sticker

Clothing Tag Tie Thing
From Crossroads. I believe that Goodwill is the only clothing store that doesn’t use these plastic ties.

Broken Tupperware
Or more precisely, Gladware. The semi-disposable kind, designed to be cheap enough that if you leave it at a potluck by accident, you won’t miss it. Whoever gave me food in this obviously didn’t miss it, since I certainly wasn’t the one to buy it. It finally cracked, so I had to recycle it. Its lid is still in use as a food dish for the stray cat we’re feeding in our back yard.

Tortilla Bag Rip-Off Strip
Out of laziness, I broke down and bought tortillas in plastic. I’m re-using the bag, though. There has got to be somewhere to buy plastic-free tortillas within biking distance…

i'll ask next time i go to a taqueria! i wonder what would be best to transport tortillas in. i guess you could roll them up and put them in a wrap-n-mat, provided they werent too big.i swear goodwill used staples not that long ago. i know the ones in wisconsin do because my sister sent me some clothes for my birthday with staples i had to carefully pick at to get out. i havent been to goodwill out here in a couple months, but now i want to know...

If you find plastic-free tortillas before I do, please let me know. That's been on my "to do" list forever. There must be a local taqueria that would make them and sell them to us in our own containers.Goodwill uses plastic tag holders too. I know from experience. :-)
