It is HARD to Get Rid of Plastic!

A few weeks ago, I wrote a post about the dangers of plastics and some ideas for cutting out some of the plastic we use.  Ever since then I have been noticing how EVERYTHING is plastic…it is probably impossible to escape it.  The radio I am listening to is made of plastic; my computer stand is plastic; my computer equipment (printer, mouse) is made of plastic; everything, even my toothbrush!

But, I am trying to at least cut back, and to eliminate as much plastic as possible from coming in contact with my food.  To that end, I have begun to save glass jars, and I have purchased some glass and stainless steel food storage containers.  Of course the glass containers have plastic lids!  But they tell me that they are BPA free…

It’s a start.


  1. I collect jars for this reason. I am now in the process of spray paining lids with chalkboard paint to make the content and for reuse. 🙂

  2. I also started to save my glass coffee containers but glass containers are few and far between.
    It is completely amazing how much plastic there is out there. I am reminded of it every time I open up my dishwasher (for some reason they just dont want to dry in there). It would appear half of my load appears to be plastic – not good!
