#Plasticfree – a proviso for the picky

I describe myself as a plastic- refusnik, a boycotter or plastic free. But I have never been happy with any of those labels. I am not plastic free. I live in a house with plastic cabling, I work on my plastic computer until I put on my plastic coat to go out in the rain. I have a relationship with my Dyson that is almost love.

Nor would I aspire to be plastic free. Plastic is a great product that has changed the world for the better.

It is the misuse of plastic that I am campaigning against not the product itself. So yes I refuse a lot of trashy plastic, I boycott abused plastic, but plastic- free? No certainly not. It was Michelles tag, being PALL ( plastic a lot less) that summed it up for me. That is exactly what we, the plastic avoiders are, plastic-less.

Michelle has been plasticless for a longtime now – and she can help you go plasticless too. Find out more about Michelle, and being PALL here.

But I still use the #plasticfree hashtag because I have used for so long.

 

BLOG STATS As of 01.29.2017 onward have been counting the number people who have read each post. WHY CUT PLASTIC About 100 million tons of plastic are produced each year and much of it is used to make one-use, disposable items. Because plastic doesn't biodegrade these items, though only used for moments can last for decades, centuries, possibly forever. We are creating ever lasting rubbish in unsustainable amounts. It is polluting the environment, maiming even killing animals, poisoning fish and may be poisoning us.
