Plastic Challenge: Dharti, Week 1


Location:  San Francisco, CA, United States

Name: Dharti

Week: 1

Personal Info:

List of plastic items REFUSED this week. (Yay!)
plastic bags from stores, instead i carried my own reusable bag!

Total items collected: 21

Total weight:

Items: Recyclable
plastic drink cups/lid/straws
food wrappers

In my community a company called Recology sorts through and recycles or composts trash and the rest goes to waste. I just sort my trash into the right bins to make it easier for Recology.

Items: Nonrecyclable

What items can I easily replace with plastic free or less plastic alternatives?

What items would I be willing to give up if a plastic free alternative doesn’t exist?

What items are essential and seem to have no plastic-free alternative?

What lifestyle change(s) might be necessary to reduce my plastic consumption?

What one plastic item am I willing to give up or replace this week?

What other conclusions, if any, can I draw?
