Day one: I woke up, with my guard on...plastic ready and decided to cook my special(!) mr. some eggs and bacon with some healthy greens. Checked the fridge but I had run out of greens?! So I thought, I would pick some up on my way home from my jog. Hmm...purchasing loose salad leaves means:PLASTIC BAGS.
After some thought, I decided to jog holding firmly onto a calico shopping bag and a small recycled plastic bag!
This made me think about my diet and what I want to achieve.
Plastic is not our enemy...it's our colourful, shiny friend. It is very useful and is almost vital with our everyday life. I don't want to get rid of it completely, I don't think that is possible.
What I think is possible is to change our view of plastic and our disposable consumer mentality.
My first rule is to recycle all the plastics I have hidden away (plastic bags, containers and bottles) and not introduce more plastic that is disposable into my life.
To help me do this, I created a kit! Very simple. Made up of RECYCLED plastic bags, paper bags and round/ rectangle take-away containers!
I made two...one for me and one for mr!
Then I popped mine into my car.
Now it sits happily in the back...and I am plastic ready for on the go!
P.s. I just found out that there was a "dear plastic" song by the sugar cubes( Bjork's band before she became famous for just being Bjork!)
Super exciting, 'cos she is one super inspiration!
