Put Less Plastic Packaging on my Hershey’s Syrup Please

We use #PlasticStuff so much in our homes and lives, it’s hard to imagine life before it was invented 110 years ago! Since then, some 5 billion tons of plastic has been produced.  And it’s all still here, somewhere on land or in the water, because it does not decompose for centuries, if at all.

So much plastic has accumulated in rivers, lakes, and oceans that it has infiltrated the food chain for animals and humans, with terrible results. Now 93% of Americans test positive for BPA, the plastic chemical, in their blood streams. This is very bad for our health, because it harms our endocrine and immune functions. When sea life, birds or other animals mistake plastic for food, and eat it, it kills them.

Pay attention to the amount of plastic you use daily. If you avoid using, buying, accepting anything plastic, even just one day a week, you can cut your plastic consumption by 14%, instantly and easily! Try it! Consider joining our Facebook group,  #PlasticFreeFridays, and share your experiences and ideas!

No bag for milk, please!

By the time you get through your supermarket checkout line, you may have your mind on the next item on your to-do list and not on what your checker person is saying when they ask you if you want them to put your  gallon of milk in a bag. You may not even hear them ask. Then suddenly you see yourself leaving the store with the greatest ocean pollutant, enemy of fish and wildlife, the sewer-clogging, petroleum wasting, BPA-spreading blight that is the flimsy, yet  ultimately indestructible disposable carryout plastic shopping bag. Milk jugs do not need bags.
