We took the Plastic Challenge!


Karl and I are challenging ourselves to STOP buying throw-away plastic items wherever possible. This means no ziploc bags, cling wrap, water bottles, or throw-away containers and straws. We even found some compost-able bamboo toothbrushes! Admittedly, it's a pretty big lifestyle change. But it will save us a lot of money in the long run. And, ultimately, stops us from being part of the rapidly escalating plastic problem.

Did you know it takes over 450 years for a plastic bottle to break down?

Or that only 7% of plastics are recycled?

This website describes a lot of why we are trying to quit plastic, and how one person's efforts really can change the world: https://www.theoceancleanup.com/great-pacific-garbage-patch/

Too much reading? Here's the video that did it for us:

We believe strongly that as humans we SHARE our planet, we don't OWN it. The world can only get better if we humans start taking responsibility for our choices.
