I’m not pretending to be the greenest person on the planet, there are plastics in my home and we’re not perfect. We do the best that we can. And to prove to you that we’re willing to improve I’m letting you hold me accountable and improve what’s in my home.
My goal is to tell you what plastics I have and I’ll then go out and do research as to how I can replace these items with plastic-free alternatives.
The Living Room
This room is quite plastic-free, mainly because I have no more plastic Tupperware. There are some food items wrapped in plastic: spinach and yogurt, and some of the kitchen appliances are plastic.
This makes me want to start making my own yogurt again and buy spinach from my local vegetable shop instead of grocery store where they don’t wrap in plastic if I ask them not to.
I know this one’s going to be the most plastic-laden. Make-up, shampoo bottles, creams, oh my! It makes sense; Chantal said that plastics are often used for liquid items because it’s the cheapest and most effective way to package those.
Personally I’m a big fan of make-up, and have always liked playing with them. I would buy plastic-free make-up instead. Who’s going to make these? Or do you know if there are any brands that sell make-up plastic-free and are organic/not tested on animals/chemical-free?
