7. Make it from scratch. When you buy processed foods, you bring lots of plastic home from the supermarket. Itís so easy to make lots of stuff from scratch insteadÖeven†crackers!
8. Buy organic cotton feminine products. Seriously, the nonorganic stuff is overwrapped in plastic, and they also have hideous fragrances.
9. Always buy your drinks in glass bottle. Itís now completely possible to avoid plastic when buying drinks on the go. Hooray for that!
10. Ask for no plastic bags at the dry cleaner: Better yet, stop buying clothes that need to be dry-cleaned (or try alternatives to dry cleaning that you can do yourself). But if you do need dry-cleaning, just tell the cleaners that you donít want bags. And they will not give them to you.
Those are the easier solutions. Next week, Iíll share my wish list for the ultimate in plastic elimination.
