News and Confessions

I’ve got something exciting to share! I’m going to interviewed by someone from a major news network on Tuesday. Yay!

But before I tell the whole world about my life not using plastic, I have to confess that I’ve had some moments of weakness over the past 7 or 8 months. I think it’s really important to be honest about this, so I want to share a list of the plastic I’ve used.

Here it is:

  • 1 silverware drawer organizer (mentioned in my last post)
  • 1 watch with synthetic band (it might be leather, though; mentioned in my last post)
  • 4 plastic produce bags (while in Romania)
  • 4 single-serve yogurts
  • 2 large containers of yogurt
  • 1 container of sour cream
  • 1 box of grape nuts
  • 1 bottle of ketchup
  • 1 container of cranberries
  • 1 container of almonds
  • 1 bag of coffee beans
  • 9 plastic clamshells of salad (due to my getting health vow as mentioned in a previous post)
  • 6 to-go coffees with plastic lids (why is coffee always the ruin of me?)
  • 4 bottles of shampoo (still trying to fend off the dandruff)
  • 1 bottle of spray gel
  • 1 container of foundation makeup
  • 1 blush
  • 1 plastic baggie

I feel pretty bad about using all of this stuff, but after doing the whole plastic-free thing for 2.5 years now, it has been hard to resist the temptation of buying plastic-packaged stuff on occasion.

I guess all I can do is move forward and keep trying.
