[Here is a suggestion from Fake Plastic Fish reader Sonja, who left this comment on the blog:]

“I’ve always needed some kind of body lotions because my skin gets too dry if I don’t cream it twice a week or so. Body lotions always, always! come in plastic bottles. Before reading your blog that didn’t bother me too much, but now it does. I found a great replacement! Olive oil. Even the organic one is not too expensive, it comes in glass bottles, and it works wonders! Just rub it into your skin right after showering when your skin is still damp. Wait until putting on clothes for two or three minutes, and you’re fine to go.

“Now I’ve got two olive oils bottles, one in the kitchen and one in the bath. And people have complimented me on my smooth skin in the middle of a very harsh winter!

“(also: Nivea cream comes in tin containers and is good, but too thick for using it on your whole body)”

[Note from Beth: It’s also possible to buy olive oil in bulk, refilling your own container. In my area, Whole Foods and Market Hall have bulk olive oil. Can’t hurt to check!]

Have your tried hemp oil? It is fantastic too!

My vote is for coconut oil…it’s light and it goes right into the skin, no waiting. And it comes in glass bottles.
