Water, water everywhere

I’ve started taking stock of the plastic around me (well, its not long since I made that resolution), the more I look, the more I see. I’m noting all the excess and unnecessary use I see and actually use and am thinking about what to do about it. Yesterday, I was thinking about coffee cups – not so innocent as they seem but more about that another time – and I came across the idea of plastic swaps. That struck me as a great approach and an easy way to deal with the plastic mountain so I’m going to have a go at that. My first swap was making use of those tiny plastic boxes that come in the nest of useful kitchen boxes instead of clingfilm. All of a sudden I realised that they were for lunch box cake – why have I never done that before.

On a positive, it was so good to see that yesterday, at last the UK has banned microbeads in cosmetics. And I’m happy to say that only a day earlier I’d consigned the bottle of body scrub with indeterminant bits, that had been lurking in my bathroom for too long, to the bin. OK its landfill but better than the water courses or sea.
