Another reason to love Dr. Seuss. When we visited the Dr. Seuss Museum a few weeks ago, there was lots of evidence that Dr. Seuss knew what was important in life. Here’s another example. Let’s all be someone who cares so that things get better.

08281818373971260217932177621.jpgI found another great company on the right track with recyclable products that do not add to our plastics problem: Black Hog Brewing Co.

And the beer is original and great. I loved the Ginga’ Ninga, a pale ale brewed with fresh ginger. Even the can is beautiful!

And, in addition to the great beer, they use recycled and recyclable plastic six pack rings.

Recycle001.svgI can’t be the only person in my town interested in recycling plastic bags and wrap. In fact, I know that I am not. If you want to start a program in your town, like I want to start in my town, Plastic Film Recycling has a great step-by-step plan called the RoadMap to WRAP.

So I’m trying to find a place to recycle plastic that cannot go into my curbside recycling bin. I’m having a hard time, and maybe you are too. Here’s what I’ve found:

At Plastic Film Recycling, I can recycle the following things.

Please recycle only clean, dry plastic bags and film. Remove receipts or any other items from bags.

Examples include:how-2recycle

  • Retail, carryout, produce, newspaper, bread, and dry cleaning bags (clean, dry and free of receipts and clothes hangers)
  • Zip-top food storage bags (clean and dry)
  • Plastic shipping envelopes (remove labels), bubble wrap and air pillows (deflate)
  • Product wrap on cases of water/soda bottles, paper towels, napkins, disposable cups, bathroom tissue, diapers, and female sanitary products
  • Furniture and electronic wrap
  • Plastic cereal box liners (but if it tears like paper, do not include)
  • Any film packaging or bag that has the How2Recycle Label shown at right

I really try to not buy these things, but I do sometimes buy paper towels and toilet paper wrapped in plastic as well as cases of prescription dog food wrapped in plastic. And I have my suits dry cleaned sometimes. So this will be helpful to me, though I won’t be recycling lots of items. I first choose “reduce and refuse” over “recycling.”

There is a location drop off finder at the website as well. I am reducing my waste. Hope you’ll do the same!

So today Sarah decided to re-purpose some plastic that we already have in our house. And at the same time, we didn’t buy more plastic and we spent time together creating something. 2018-03-24 08.57.57

We used a Powerade bottle (that we bought last month) and made a game similar to Yeti in My Spaghetti. We call it “Octopus in My Powerade”! Here’s what we used: (more…)

It is one month until Earth Day 2018. During these 30 days, I am going to work to End Plastic Pollution and reduce my plastic pollution footprint by not purchasing anything plastic that I won’t be using for more than 30 days: no plastic water or beverage bottles, no plastic bags, no plastic food containers of pre-packaged food, no detergent bottles, no hair care or make-up products, no straws. I am curious to see how difficult it will be. Join me. There’s a lot of info available at www.earthday.org. Using the primer available at EarthDay.org, I determined that currently my monthly plastic pollution contribution is about 48 items. That’s a lot. Maybe a lot less than some, but way more than others. So my goal is to: not bring in more plastic and to try to reuse (instead of just recycle) the plastic that I have in my house. Wish me luck, and join me!
