Getting rid of plastic
I’ve mentioned before that one of our long-term goals is to eliminate as much plastic as possible from our lives and our household. Plastic is a problem for so many reasons.
Plastic is the cheap and easy solution to so many problems in our lives: need to wrap up some food? Get some plastic wrap. Don’t want to wash that plate? Throw it out! More often than not it’s such a lazy solution, and it makes us lazier as a society. Not only that but it’s utterly horrible for the environment and our bodies.
Because of that we’ve been replacing some of our older plastic stuff (that needs replacing anyway) with non-plastic, durable items. I have ordered the majority of them from Life Without Plastic, an amazing company that truly seems to care about the products they sell. They also have a great blog that links to all kinds of interesting information about plastic and why we should get rid of it.
I’ll leave you with this awesome info graphic from facebook about plastic and it’s role in our lives.
