I’d never heard of plastic-Free July before, but I’m willing to jump on the bandwagon to eliminate as much extra plastic from our lives as possible. Now I hate plastic and I shun it every day anyway. But for me, it’s all about balance. If I stumble I don’t obsess about it, life’s just too short.
But I’m usually pretty successful in eliminating lots of plastic with super-easy changes. Come see ways I’ve been able to stop lots of plastic from coming into our home. Maybe you can pick up a few tips.
We’d love to hear your tips too, be sure to share in the comments. We can all learn from each other!
Recently RancherMan & I enjoyed a vacation with my siblings in New Braunfuls, Texas. It was a great time filled with family, sight seeing, shopping & some pretty fancy restaurants. We all even got to enjoy a concert at the famous Gruene Hall. And as luck would have it, we were visiting during Market Days weekend too.
Market Days is an outside market filled with vendors of many different kinds. Craftsmen were selling anything from hair clips made from vintage silverware to hand-made leather pistol holsters. Then I spied a vendor who was selling baskets, and I’ve wanted a basket for years. To me they’re beautiful and very functional pieces of art.
On this day I picked out a gorgeous, roomy hand-made basket with leather handles. It even had strips of bright pink woven in. Since becoming a breast cancer survivor I enjoy having splashes of pink around me. This basket is beautiful, I love it!
