Wardeh’s “Use Less Plastic” Challenge

One of my favorite bloggers, Wardeh Harmon, has issued us a challenge: use less plastic. Check out her blog post to read all of her great reasons why. I don’t like plastic either: I worry about it leaching into my food, I don’t like that it increases demand for fossil fuels, or that even recycling it uses a lot of energy. It’s an amazing invention, and it has its place, for sure. But, it just doesn’t have a great score in the “carbon footprint” scale. So I have been trying to say “no” to it more, too.

And, I’m starting to reflect that many “old school” materials are just a lot more appealing: wood, glass, ceramic, brick, basket materials, cotton, hemp, wool, metal, stone- they look more pleasing, and feel nicer. I am trying to erradicate plastic in lots of places,¬†especially from the yard, animal equipment,¬†and food storage containers.

How can you give plastic the boot in your life? Take the challenge!
