I don’t really have much questions at this time. I’ve been trying to rid myself of plastic for awhile now but living where I live and not driving, so shopping when I can where I can (usually Krogers or Wal-Mart) makes it a little hard.
After making my list of not recyclables and recyclables, any suggestions on if I was wrong with what’s recyclable and not? I didn’t realize so much of my stuff wasn’t recylcable.

I have a blog about my efforts to reduce my use of plastic called Citizen Green. I have been blogging for almost a year now. Doing this plastic inventory was much more useful than I thought it would be. It helped me see where plastic was sneaking into my house. As a result I plan to start gently bugging the 2 grocery stores where I shop for more bulk choices. I also plan to try to convince my pharmacy to do something about prescription bottles. I wish we could just refill them in the old bottles.
This was a worthwhile activity to do. It helped me evaluate the plastic that I am still using. I know I can eliminate some of it. I recommend you try it yourself!
