Plastic Challenge: Sheri Puckette, Week 2

ideas for some kind of dish scrubby that isn’t plastic? I am trying out a wooden brush with natural bristles but it doesn’t fit into the bottoms of my mason jars well like the old scrubbies plus I don’t think it is going to last nearly as long. Maybe I should just use a rag? […]

Welcome any ideas on how to eliminate things you see in it. I have found plastic wrap from the meat we buy (half beef at a time from a farm) an unavoidable item so far. Some other butchers use paper, but it is lined with plastic so isn’t good either. Location:Corvallis, Oregon, United States

Something comparable to emergen-c or airborne to boost immune system. My understanding is that the liquid form is absorbed […]
