Create Your Own Action

Plastic reduction

I will eliminate plastic food storage and move to glass to reduce our exposure to endocrine disrupters. My goal is to completely eliminate contact between food and plastic in my kitchen.

    Made the beeswax wraps this weekend. Here is one wrapping up half a cabbage.

    Another bonus switching to glass -  storage containers can go in the dishwasher.

      And they line up on a shelf, and are transparent.  Good 4 U.

    I haven't found any free replacements for the plastic sandwich bags (posted on Buy Nothing in hopes of getting them there) but I did find a 'recipe' for making waxed cloth sheets, so will proceed with making my own from quilting fabric and left over beeswax I have on hand.

    My anti-plastic eco-challenge is at odds with my frugality, but today I put the 'free' plastic Dutch Bros cup and lid in the recycling and moved the small glasses to the kids lower cupboard, to eliminate plastic in that area of food consumption.

      My question is if you had lids for all the Tupperware. That has never happened in my house.

    I started the challenge early and plan to continue the challenge beyond the finish date. I want a lifestyle revamp.
