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 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 […]

Plastic Challenge: Ellen Simpson, Week 5

I am wondering whether there is plastic in two items I have this week. One is butcher paper from Whole Foods. This doesn’t seem to have any plastic in it. I can rip it easily, and I don’t see the thin bit of stretchy plastic that you can see in some plastic-coated paper. I included […]

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 […]

Is it possible to buy canola oil in glass jars? I only found it in plastic at my grocery store. I needed it right away for a recipe, so I purchased it in plastic, but I’m thinking it should be available somewhere in glass. I was able to find olive oil in glass no problem, […]

Plastic Challenge: Pheas, Week 1

How to eat healthfully—I am vegan and aim to eat more raw food—with minimal plastic and minimal food prep. I absolutely hate food preparation, so things that rely on my doing more washing, chopping, peeling, and cooking are unlikely to happen except in very small increments over time. I’m open to other suggestions, as well, […]
