daily use of plastics

by lara

I’ve been trying to gradually replace small plastic things i own with non-plastics (glass tupperware as opposed to plastic, aluminum water bottles as opposed to plastic) Still, plastics seem to pop up in almost every space of my daily existence.

yesterday my interactions w plastics were as follows:

-woke up to my alarm on my cell phone (1 min 2 years total)

– plastc brush to wash dishes (1 year), soap container to pour soap (1 month?)

– metro card (1 month)

– used student id to get into school (2 years?)

– used computers (?)

– plastic container for sandwich (half hour)

– plastic bag at grocery store (half hour)

and this isn’t even counting all the stuff i have around me on a day to day basis! (plastics in furniture, shampoo bottles, soap holders, etc etc.)
