Earth Day 9 - almost to the end of my experiment and green & frugal tip friday!
Its kind of ironic, the wild salmon that I bought that was all wrapped in plastic, plastic that is meant to keep it clean, and there was just a huge oil spill (used to be make the plastic) in the southern border of the US that is polluting all the fish in the ocean. It just doesn't make sense. I was thinking about what I could do help, but I guess the only thing is to stop buying these crazy plastics that the oil riggers work to make.
Check out the Oil Spill Story on Fox News.
Yesterday I was walking through a store and I was so happy, I saw cardboard boxes of biodegradeable plastic garbage bags! And this wasn't in a whole foods or a health food store, it was in a regular grocery store! In my head, I went - the world, it is a changin'. (it kinda sounded like a song:)) And I'm happy to say that I'm changing too:)
I missed Frugal tip Fridays I decided to just add one today that is Green & Frugal!
I used to throw away my plastic shower liners and just buy a new one. Call me a dumb college student, cause I was:) I learned how to never have to buy another shower liner and to clean the one I had at the same time, which means not having to throw away more plastic, cause how funny would that look if I walked around all day with a shower liner?? and brought a shower liner to work?? lol. (see past posts, since Earth Day I'm carrying around all the garbage that cannot be recycled, composted or reused until tomorrow)
All you have to do is put your shower liner in the washing machine with a towel (to avoid ripping), and then hang to dry. Just wash with cold water!
Tomorrow I'm going to do a recap of everything that I learned, that I have, and homemade bread, with pictures! Thanks for stopping by, for playing along while I do my wacky experiment and Happy Friday Follow!
