Just think about it, if you look in your fridge, pantry, or shelves how many of the items are somehow wrapped in plastic. They may even be in a plastic container wrapped in plastic in a box. The point that I'm getting at is that we are surrounded by plastic wrapped items.
As I walked home I decided that I was going to try, no I was going to stop buying things in plastic!
As you follow me here you will be able to see how successful I am at this task. I will share all the things I learn on this journey as well as all the times I make mistakes.
As I am documenting this I am also collecting any plastic I do happen to buy on accident or out of necessity. Every month I will weigh it and let you know what is in my trash.
