I am the founder of MyPlasticfreeLife.com and have been collecting my plastic and attempting to live as plastic-free as possible since June of 2007.
See my previous years’ tallies at:
List of plastic items REFUSED this week. (Yay!)
Airplane plastic food and beverage packaging. Brought my own travel mug and didn’t need snacks for a short flight from San Francisco to Denver for the LOHAS conference.
All other disposable plastic bags, packaging, and containers, etc.
Total items collected: 1
Total weight: .4 ounces
1) Packing tape from case of Plastic-Free books.
What items can I easily replace with plastic free or less plastic alternatives?
What items would I be willing to give up if a plastic free alternative doesn’t exist?
What items are essential and seem to have no plastic-free alternative?
The packing tape on the cases of Plastic-Free books. All the cases are already taped up. See explanation of tape on book boxes here: http://myplasticfreelife.com/plastic-challenge-pix/2012/05/plastic-challenge-beth-terry-week-21/
What other conclusions, if any, can I draw?
It’s just so ironic that the more Plastic-Free books I sell, the more plastic tape I will have in my tally. But nothing can be done about it at this point.
