Ditching Plastic


Here: multicolored tiny tomatoes and raspberries from a local market. Mexico? That's not really my bummer, it's more the wild, terrible and very real REAL-IT-Y of the consequences of our plastic uses. They are HUGE! Do me a favor: walk your house, open the cupboards and cabinets and take note (really, with a pen or pencil or a pad or piece of paper) of all of the plastic that's in your house. Me? I'm so sad that it's impossible for me to purchase foods and products that are not packaged in plastic: and as I un-plastic what I have purchased, I have visions of strangled birds, pile-high dump sites—and the environmental consequences of producing, packaging and disposing. Join me in considering your plastic habit. Join me in making ANY effort to kick it.
