Ya Gotta Start Somewhere..

They say that which you focus on expands. Apparently I messed up and have been focusing on plastic expanding in my life, not out! I have been trying to cut and gut plastic from my household use, really I have. I remember PB&J sandwiches being in wax paper bags in elementary school. I gave bees wax paper as gifts a couple years back. Wax anything is just not as ‘perfect’.

I am taking note of my plastic use more. That’s something, right? After eating part of an apple, I wrapped it in plastic and THEN noticed, “Oh crap, I used plastic.” So yeah, ya gotta start somewhere! Caring, noticing, re-thinking… it is starting.

I wrote the beginning of this post about 2 weeks ago. I am here to say I AM shifting away from my plastic use without an output of so much energy. Yippee!! 🎉👏🏼

I encourage all of you to keep trying to cut the mindless plastic use. Plastic is amazing for somethings. Then there are those things I use it only from habit. The function is no better than can or glass. Definitely the ‘single use and toss’ items need to go. I will not be purchasing items.. ok trying to not purchase items… that are unlikely to get recycled and carry the recycle numbers 3, 6, or 7. You keep gutting where ever you can.

Just like this little guy below…..start from where ever you land.
