Weaning Yourself Off Plastic

[To comment: larry@larrylitwin.com]

Recently, Rodale’s editors blogged, and received many comments and tips, at rodale.com/plastic-free. One way to begin the wean is to start amassing all the plastic you can in a week. Analyze it. There’s probably a lot of packaging you could eliminate.

Some tips:

  • Carry your own cutlery.
  • Skip single-use items.
  • Use metal or glass food storage containers.
  • Wrap lunch sandwiches in waxed paper.
  • Try laundry detergent powders that come in a box.
  • Carry reusable shopping bags.
  • Carry a reusable bottle or buy drinks ina glass or aluminum.
