Plastic Challenge: Kristin, Week 30

What do you do when buying a fresh crab/lobster? I’ve only ever done it once and they were put in a box lined with a giant plastic bag. Do you think I could bring a big rubbermaid container? Faux pas? Location:Prince George, British Columbia, Canada

Plastic Challenge: Kristin, Week 26

Until I can afford lasers or the dignity to grow out my leg hair long enough for regular waxing, what do I do…. Hardcore straightblade up my legs? Not gonna lie, I’m kinda scared! Location:Prince George, British Columbia, Canada

Plastic Challenge: Kristin, Week 25

Toilet paper wrapping: I recall reading an article some time ago about ordering a giant amount of TP from amazon & having it shipped (seventh gen maybe?). I DO have a vehicle & drive it more than I’m proud of, so my TP does come from the grocery store which only offers plastic packaged options. […]

Facewash/Lotion: I’ve discovered that Lush carries facial products that I think I’ll try out once I use up what I have in the house, but do you have any other suggestions? Also, vegetarian lunch ideas? Egg salad sandwiches are getting old already… Location:Prince George, British Columbia, Canada

Plastic Challenge: Kristin, Week 22

Dishsoap- I just polished off my giant refill bag. Any suggestions (other than not using it)? Garbage bags- we’re starting to run low on our ancient stash of grocery store bags that we’ve been using for this purpose, but I don’t feel like we’re close enough to needing NO garbage bags… my understanding is that […]

Plastic Challenge: Kristin, Week 20

Of the humongous amount of strawberries I bought yesterday, a large portion were frozen in big Ziploc freezer bags I already had in the house. I know that freezing in canning jars IS okay, but for strawberries that I’ll grab a handful at a time for smoothies, I’m not sure this would be the best […]

Things (uncompostable things) are going mouldy in my garbage can before it’s full. I already am only using a small bathroom garbage can in the kitchen with grocery store shopping bags in it- I can’t go much smaller! Any thoughts? Location:Prince George, British Columbia, Canada

Plastic Challenge: Kristin, Week 14

I have yet to remember (in 14+ weeks) to ask for no straw when dining out. I have no idea why…. any tips? Annoying amazon.ca packing pillows: I had full intentions of commenting on my order for no plastic packaging to be included, but totally forgot at the last minute. Does anyone know if they […]

Plastic Challenge: Kristin, Week 12

This week I take full responsibility for all of my items. I know better. Between a 24 hour notice camping trip (that resulted in a LOT of packaged foods & other items) and not having time to do the other things (like baking) that I had intended to do this week it’s just been a […]
