    Recycling is the best and only choice in my life

    I still face some challenges with going plastic free.  Today, the last day of the campaign, I used a plastic straw for my milkshake because my bag with my reusable straw was at home.  I signed only one petition this month because that's all I could find.  BUT we are now recycling #5 plastic (I drop it off at Whole Foods once a month.) And we are recycling plastic bags and packaging at Meijer. I have helped spread the word about plastic, and I hope that that has made a difference. I am exploring options for shampoo and other products that aren't sold in plastic.

    Planning to keep the plastic free efforts  and new habits going!  It's been a good month of learning new things and taking new actions.

    Kudos to all those who worked hard to try to be plastic free in July!

    Husband shared a summary of  a documentary he watched about diersion of plastics from a landfill to be used in combination with some steel manufacturing.  A successful use of plastic.  While not the answer to the production of plastic, a potential re-use rather than landfill.

    Has anyone else filed out the pre-survey and have not received their 100 points?

    • Barbara Revard 7/31/2018 5:26 PM
      Sandra - I will check on this for you!

    It feels good to be forming new habits. I still have a ways to go.

    I attempted to make my own Clorox wipes out of a recycled coffee can, paper towels and ingredients I had at home.  I don't know where I would be without my Clorox wipes, so hopefully this will keep everything squeaky clean!
