In this post I will be discussing the trash that my household used to make thanksgiving happen. You must know that in my extended family we have a potluck style dinner. This year my family was responsible for the turkey, deviled eggs, and the pies.
All of the items above are items that have some kind of plastic in them. I weighed all of the items and it came out to be six and a half pounds.
I made the deviled eggs. The one item that I used to use that is in plastic is mayo. This year I went to my local market to look for an alternative. I was not able to find an alternative with no plastic, but instead of buying mayo in a plastic bottle I found one in a glass jar with a plastic top and a seal. I will be able to reuse the bottle in the future with the plastic top. My only plastic contribution is the seal around the jar.
My mother and sister made the pies. I can only speak for the ones that my mom made as they were the ones I saw. Basically my mom wins the no plastic award! She used no plastic at all to bake a mincemeat pie and an apple pie.
