Well let’s take a look shall we? 1.0 ounces for the month of November.
1 salad dressing seal
7 vitamin/spice seals
2 vegan butter wrappers
1 bar code sticker
3 Levi Jeans’ stickers
2 pizza box thingies
2 yogurt container seals
1 medical bottle sticker
3 vitamin bottle preservative packages
1 flower pot decoration
Most of these items were accidental or from my pre-zero waste life. The balloon for example was an old stress ball I made back in college that finally broke. The decoration that went around a flower pot was a gift. And the pizza box thingies were a slip of mind when I ordered them delivered. Usually I ask them not to be put them in the boxes!
Want to know what was the happiest moment this month was though? When I found yogurt in a glass jar! I literally hollered out loud in the store! I think I scared the woman next to me because she jumped a little and looked at me funny. Either way though, I couldn’t contain my excitement! Samish Bay makes cheese that I buy each week at the farmer’s market and as it turns out, makes yogurt to!
And so I begin December, knowing my fridge can be stocked with yogurt almost completely plastic free! And that’s enough cheer for me :)
