Plastic-Free Update

So I’ve been at this plastic-free thing for a couple of days now, and I have to say – it’s really hard. Like, impossible hard. But I think that through my struggles, I’ve discovered what plastic-free February is all about: realizing how much of our lives is literally (and litter-ally) wrapped in plastic. I tried to use my glass tupperware to store leftovers, only to realize they had plastic lids. I went to buy fresh vegetables, thinking about how good I was being, only to realize that I have to use a plastic bag to bundle green beans, apples, and more. Buying anything involved using plastic in the form of my credit card. I’m not sure how the rest of the month will go, if I’ll stick with the plan or run screaming away from it. But I do think that whatever happens, I have become more mindful of how much plastic I consume every single day.

    Good for you, it is really hard to do but at least you’re mindful of it. My husband and I started “The Plastic Promise” You should take it or at least check it out, I think we’re close to an 1000 people who have committed to it!
