“You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference and you have to decide what kind of a difference you want to make.”
I have my produce bags ready ….lots of glass jars I save them all and am getting more choosy on the shape of the jar when I purchase something in a glass container ..wide-necked and straight no shoulders.
I am increasingly aware that I myself need to step up and do more but am choosing my battles wisely…something you have to do when you live in a household with others as you all need to be on board…
Therefore by reducing our households contribution by eliminating plastic/paper I feel I am making a contribution to the overall waste generated by this household.
I already drink loose leaved tea and have done so for a number of years…Hubbies t/bags are going and he will be drinking loose leafed tea…Those Tea Bags contain plastic…microplastics as do many of the products we buy…microplastics... most of which are even smaller than those pictured.
“The ultimate test of man’s conscience may be his willingness to sacrifice something today for future generations whose words of thanks will not be heard.”
Yoghurt pots are not recyclable …Homemade yoghurt is easy to do and I am now ready to move on to making sour cream which will be one less unrecyclable pot…I will be sharing how soon…
Canned foods...some cans are lined with BPA are you confused I know I was so many different grades of plastics…I have addressed that by not buying canned tomatoes I have reduced the tinned goods I buy gradually and in fact, the only cans I buy now are canned sardines for hubby…he loves them on toast.
Confused about plastics…I hope this helps..x
I do hope you join me for Plastic Free July…Sign up for the challenge here.
The challenge for Plastic Free July is about how much you can do it is your choice but please remember the words of George Bernard Shaw…

-George Bernard Shaw
