By this time tomorrow I will officially be on Day One of my plastic-free year! Today I went out and bought a bunch of plastic-less stuff for my home. I got new drinking glasses (my old ones are mostly broken), a stainless steel grater, four stainless steel cooking utensils, two glass jugs and a new mat for the floor of my kitchen. I also got a leather bench! It’s one of the storage types that is also a coffee table. It’s a bit massive in my living room but I love it anyway.
I got some white flannel and am making “cotton balls.” I cut 2″ x 2″ squares and stitched around the edges. They can be used just the same way as cotton balls but without having to buy the ones in the plastic bag at the drug store. And, I got some light muslin to make bags to use for bulk things like flours, sugars, etc.
The other day I finally found the charger for my camera! Now I’ll be able to share photos of… whatever I want to share photos of!
Oh! I also ordered a book online called Whole Life Nutrition Kitchen. The recipes look really incredible – easy and healthy using whole foods (ie: unprocessed). They’re all gluten-, dairy- and egg-free! The majority of the recipes are meatless as well. (There are only 20 pages of meat recipes out of the 440 page book.) When I ordered the book, I asked them to not put any plastic packaging with it, so we’ll see how it arrives!
Happy new year!
