Thoughts on Plastic…

I have not posted anything lately.  Not much for a long time.  I have been distracted by a lot of things, which isn’t an excuse.  It just is.  Life.  I still collect little bits of plastic in my kitchen cupboard; I still curse at the idiocy of humanity and our wasteful ways; I still refuse to use single-use plastic bags and plastic bottles.

This is what I want to say today:

My New Year’s Resolution thirteen months ago was simple: stop using single-use plastic grocery bags.  I am proud to say that in that time I have not accepted a single plastic bag from a grocery store, or any store for that matter.  Not one.

And I have stopped using plastic bottles — water, juice, etc… as much as possible, as in close to zero.

I am going to try to write more on this blog — I owe it to myself to speak up about the things that matter to me.  There are many things that are important to me, to my family and friends, to my community, to my world…

Respect.  Relearn.  Realize . . .

Rethink.  Refuse.  Reduce.  Reuse.



  1. Hey you 🙂 Yeah, you should be on this soapbox again.
