Plastic Challenge: Deepak Sukhu, Week 2


Well my brother recycles them for money, so its a win-win for us, so I really dont know what would be better.

Location:  Oakley, CA, United States

Name: Deepak Sukhu

Week: 2

Personal Info:

I live with my parents and brother. Just 4 of us in one 2 story house. We drink a lot of water from plastic bottles and Arizona from cans. We have a lot of plastic bags which we use for a lot of things. My dad commutes to SF everyday for work, my mom drives to Antioch to work, and I deliver for round table, so there’s of gas consumption here.
