Plastic. It’s ruining our earth. It’s ruining our lives! Now, you are looking at a woman who is not into recycling, shame on me. I have grown. I am starting to realize, with the looks of our Mother Earth, the impact of plasti-trash on our environment.
It’s fantastic that the government is banning plastic bags in our grocery stores. BUT, and here is the big BUT, what about the rest of it?
I looked in my own very personal grocery cart, and I placed in grape tomatoes from Chili. I actually found, to my delight, romaine lettuce that was un-plastic bagged! I put them in my newly purchased organic cotton mesh bag.
I bought paper straws at Dollar General. I had to cave and buy my grands plastic buckets for Easter baskets, but made sure they are multipurpose baskets, they can store socks or toys in the mini-wash baskets.
It’s not enough, folks. We have to do more. We have to learn how to grow our own. We have to stop buying things in plastic. Whatever happened to the cardboard berry cartons? Yes, it’s paper, but that paper has been grown specifically for that purpose.
Let’s do it!
