Plastic Challenge: Hanh Pham, Week 3

What’s the best way to buy bulk toilet paper without the plastic? Besides buying produce at farmer’s markets, is there another way to buy produce without stickers and twist ties? If you are attending an event and 21 and over attendees are asked to put a wrist band on so that bar knows who to […]

Plastic Challenge: Sabra, Week 1

Ok, I have a small condition that forces me no not be able to drink chlorinated water at all. The tab water in Nashville contains chlorine, along with most bottled water. I have searched high and low to find one brand that doesn’t contain chlorine, and that is Deer Park. However, Deer Park water only […]

Plastic Challenge: Natalie, Week 2

How to anticipate surprise plastic in restaurants and cafes? IS there a law about having to give lids for paper cups in NY or anywhere? Better places for buying bulk in central NJ or NY? I know of some, but Unpackaged in London sounds like a dream. Ideas about, given the choice, to get plastic […]
