Soft plastics: Stretch their use




Tomorrow is recycling day here at Tightwad's casa. The city is very good at picking up all the soft and hard plastics, metal and glass every Monday, also with compostables. Always pleased with the small amount of garbage compared to fairly large pile of recycling at her curb, Tightwad realized this week just how much (unavoidable) soft plastic she recycles. Bags from bulk popcorn, tortilla chips and coffee can, and should, be used in place of garbage liners. Reducing what we buy in terms of  packaging is of course, the first step in streamlining our consumption, but reusing what we do buy in terms of packaging should be the second step. 

There are a number of excellent sites for upcycling plastic bags if you are feeling crafty.  

Don't forget, Earth Day 2020 is this Wednesday. 💚
