Janet's Actions

At Home

Avoid Harmful Plastics

I will avoid buying toxic plastics, including polyvinyl, polystyrene and polycarbonate (#3,#6 and #7).


At Home

Shop Used

I will buy secondhand goods to reduce the demand for new plastic products and avoid packaging.

    Checked Seward Co-op's bulk offerings of shampoo, creme rinse, body lotion and am looking forward to refilling the plastic bottles I now have with the bulk products once they are empty.  Also found some face lotion packaged in glass rather than plastic.  Switching from Cliff bars, etc to homemade trail mix made from bulk items as emergency snacks in car and office.  BUT eliminating plastic is not only challenging, it is impossible.  Still I'll keep trying and taking steps.
  • Reflection Question
    At Home Shop Used
    What kinds of items have been easy for you to find used? What has been hard?

    Easy to find - a hot air popcorn popper.  Seems like everyone buys one and then gives it away shortly after...
