Plastic Challenge: Pat Clancy, Week 6

Is it better to buy organic produce packaged in plastic or bulk items that are not organic? I am finding that sometimes that is my choice. Yesterday I bought nonorganic onions because I really needed onions and didn’t have time to go to another store. When the farmers market starts up in April this will […]

Plastic Challenge: Pat Clancy, Week 5

I keep learning here about more things that are plastic that I wasn’t aware of before, so the number of items in my tally goes up instead of down in spite of changes being made. What can I do about mail that comes in window envelopes? I have one plastic magazine sleeve this week from […]

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

Plastic Challenge: Sandy, Week 6

Still struggling with the TP bags. When we considered the shipping cost and cardboard that would be required to buy non plastic packaged tp online it didn’t make sense. Wish there was someplace local but they’re even going to have to ship it in. I looked all over for antipersperant in a non plastic holder […]

Plastic Challenge: Sandy, Week 5

Started trying to make stuff from things I’ve been collecting to upcycle this week. Made my sister luggage tags for her trip to Hawaii so I used the clear plastic from a takeout food carrier and some plastic from some electronics that we bought to make the clear part of the tag. Used recycled food […]

Plastic Challenge: Sandy, Week 2

I’m confused by this eco-friendly bag wine. It says its more environmentally friendly because it replaces 2 glass bottles. Not so sure. Will be making some shopping bags for the family to save them from using plastics. I plan to line them with plastic tablecloths that I picked up at Goodwill. Does buying plastics and […]

Plastic Challenge: Sandy, Week 1

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 […]
