The No Plastic Project: Real-life attempts to use less plastic

The No Plastic Project: Real-life attempts to use less plastic

I'm a pretty good recycler.

I pore over mailings from our county recycling office to see what we can and can't recycle...I pick plastic bags out of the communal bin at my shop - I've even done a bare handed reach into my own trash to rescue a plastic container someone thought was trash. The thing is - with tighter rules on contamination, and fewer countries that want to recycle our mountain of plastic - a lot of the plastic I'm "saving" is probably going to end up as trash anyway.

It's way past time for me to get working seriously on that first R of our Reduce....
