My plastic tally weeks go from Friday through Thursday. This week starts the day after Thanksgiving, where I just went to Goodwill so have a few tag fasteners from that. Then Saturday I went to Mexico for a week. :) I went to a vegan yoga retreat; I heard one of the organizers describe the place as a “eco-boutique” resort. I know they used some plastic in the kitchen (such as plastic wrap over the fruit plates at breakfast), but almost nothing used while I was there, just one water bottle, plus a couple food items from the airport.
I was told, and it seemed to be the case, that there isn’t much recycling to speak of in Mexico. That’s why I put the bottles under nonrecyclable, because they weren’t recycled.
