My plastic-free challenge has officially begun and Day One was a success!! I went to Starbucks with my reusable (glass) tea mug, went to Chapters but didn’t buy anything (and if I had, I’d brought my reusable bag just in case) and then had dinner with a friend where I had no left-overs.
Okay, so it was a pretty easy day! I expect things will likely become more difficult as I go on, but I am happy to say that so far, so good. 🙂
I also want to say a huge THANKS to everyone who’s supporting me on this journey! I’ve already had a few emails and texts saying “good luck”, which is hugely appreciated! This is why I decided to tell everyone and write this blog – because I know that you’re watching and I need that support!
Oh! Before I go, I meant to tell everyone that the Lululemon Lab on W. Broadway at Cambie is currently accepting donated new AND partially used toiletries. All donated items will be given to the WISH Drop-In Centre. WISH is a really great centre in Vancouver for women who used to work in the sex trade. They do a lot of good here in Vancouver. As you all know, I’m getting rid of all my plastic toiletries. I gave most of them to friends but I have lots more than are unopened and didn’t know what to do with them. Tomorrow I’m going to take them down to the Lulu Lab to donate. If you live in Vancouver, please consider doing the same! These women are brave and need our support to reintegrate themselves into society.
Again, thank you and happy new year!!
