- There's so much of it.
- It often breaks.
- I spend so much time finding ways to reuse or recycle it.
- And also that it can be so bad for us.
We got an email from Rendi who is trying to make her home 70 percent plastic free. Why? Her daughter has severe medical health problems that she believes are tied to toxins in plastics. She's looking for a night light or dim lamp that is plastic free. I figured ours was, but when I went upstairs to my kids' room to look at it, I saw that the bulb housing is all plastic. Do you have any ideas for Rendi? She is also looking for ideas on plastic free garbage cans/recycling bins. The ideas I had were small wicker ones for indoors, and the "Oscar the Grouch" style metal cans for outside. Please chime in if you have any additional ideas.
