Plastic Challenge: Sandy, Week 7

The sandwich issue. We tried to get our deli to give us our sandwich stuff in paper like the butcher but weren’t quick enough and they put it all in seperate ziplock bags. Probably need to find another deli. Location:Mountain View, CA, California, United States

I use the plastic take out trays from eating out for collection water under plant pots and for holding seedling boxes. I also noticed that the plastic bottles from Sobe drinks are kinda cool looking. I’m saving those to use to water indoor plants that are high up. Since you can squeeze them I think […]
