I'm Tired of Plastic Everything
I try not to buy too much. It seems that everything I do buy has a plastic component. Despite my best efforts to avoid it I end up with a seemingly endless amount of plastic to recycle. I can't figure it out. I know there are bioplastics around that can be composted but very little, if any, is used in packaging that I can find. Some encouraging news is coming from Brazil regarding bioplastics. If they are not used more I will have to really evaluate what I'm buying and try to cut out the plastic. I thought I was doing a good job then started noticing the recycling bin is packed with all kinds of plastic. If anyone has any ideas on how to reduce plastic please share.
