This is more of a reporting rather than a proposed small change. I didn't think I was going to have a one small change for march, but I was lying in bed last night and realized that I had made a small change. I use alkalized water due to some health issues that I have, and it came in plastic gallon jugs. We have eliminated
almost all much of (edit note: don't want anyone to think I am some kind of superhero here.....there is more plastic than I really like to admit coming in contact with food that we purchase, but we don't use plastic to cook, store or serve our food) the plastic that comes in contact with foods from our home so I really didn't like the fact that the water I drank was in plastic. A couple of weeks ago I scrubbed up some glass wine jugs that I got out of our recycling center by dumpster diving (I have a habit of doing that there) and have the water placed into them instead of the plastic. No more plastic for me. My husband still gets his water from a local spring in 5 gallon plastic jugs. I hope one day to find an alternative for that too.
Encouraged by the fascinating work of Masaru Emoto I labelled each bottle with the words 'Love and Gratitude'.
***thanks to everyone who made me start thinking just how much plastic is still coming into our home. I hope to do a post in the near future to share some of the ways we avoid plastic.***
