A record of my efforts to live a more sustainable life.

Show Us Your Plastic Challenge: March 2011

An explanation for my absence: In February I was feverishly job searching. Since then, I have been working full time, and in the process of moving. Now we're settled into our apartment, but we still don't have Internet set up. And that's how I came to be sitting in the St. Boniface library hurriedly publishing this post. Sorry for the delay!

Recyclable Items (10)
  • 3 orange juice cartons
  • 2 soy milk cartons
  • 1 strawberry container (PETE 1)
  • 1 soft drink lid from theatre (I don't always manage to convince them fast enough not to give me a lid.)
  • 1 spatula package
  • 1 scissors package (and then the scissors totally broke, so what a waste!)
  • 1 package from cutlery set

Non-Recyclable Items (19):
  • 3 wrappers from cookie sheets
  • 1 takeout container
  • 1 pill package
  • 1 waffles bag
  • 1 rolling pin wrapper
  • 1 toothbrush
  • 1 toothbrush wrapper
  • 5 carton seals
  • 1 taco shell bag
  • 1 apple turnover filling package
  • 1 icing package
  • 1 chocolate bar wrapper
  • 1 jelly bean bag

Total Items: 29 (Not too bad I say, considering all the packaging caused by moving.)

I love, love, love the theme of your blog. It's my dream one day to live in a totally eco friendly home. Also, I love your blog template. Where did you find it? I'm now following u.

I'm glad you like my blog! As for my theme, I was going to tell you to scroll down to the bottom of my blog and click the link, but I just did that, and there's now a different site there. So that's weird. It looks like maybe the place where I got this template is gone.

I'll be posting more here in the near future, so I hope you enjoy it!
