Name: Kiyomi Smothermon
See our Week 1 tally for personal info about us.
Total items: 24
Total weight: 11 oz
Root Beer bottle (#1)
Gatorade bottle (#1)
My husband drank both of these. He is trying to cut down, but still grabs one sometimes.
old racket strings cut up – 3 rackets’ worth
old overgrips – from 2 rackets
new overgrip packages for 2 rackets
1 Yakisoba noodle bag
1 Yakisoba noodle inner bag
2 individual size Bonito flake bags
1 Kettle chip bag
1 candy wrap I couldn’t resist at doctor’s office
1 lable off of a sauce jar (jar itself is glass and I am saving it for another use)
4 miscellaneous bags
1 deformed and no longer usable lid to a glass food saver
1 Hotel amenity shampoo bottle
1 broken closet rod holder
1 envelop seal cover
What items can I replace with plastic free or less plastic alternatives?
I will not buy Bonito flakes in individual size any more. I will get a big bag (still plastic less)
I will start bringing my own shampoo, etc. and will not touch amenities in a hotel. I still have dozen or so fro previous travels so I will still have to go through them.
What items are essential and seem to have no plastic-free alternative?
Same as week 1 on tennis stringing. My husband does it for friends and family, so we end up with some plastic waste from it. Perhaps I should start excluding them from my tally.
