We’re almost two weeks in. So far it’s going abysmal.
Why? Because we had more than one week of contaminated tap water. I usually don’t buy bottled water but had to recently, and let’s face it, plastic bottle six packs are easier to carry than the whole box-with-glass-bottles thing. Well, at least the bottles were returnable. By now the alarm is over and we’re able to drink from the tap again.
It’s also surprisingly hard to find the time for conscious grocery shopping at the moment, not only with the internship (where I work nine to five) but also with all that happened last week.
Things that are really hard to come by without plastic wrapping this week:
- pasta (there is one brand with paper packaging, and they’re homophobic)
- toilet paper
- lactose-free yoghurt
I plan on starting over this week though, with decent bentō and non-bottled water. Maybe I’ll even find the time to make pasta from scratch, but I wouldn’t bet on it…
I hope your Plastic Free July (if you partake) is going better than mine so far!
P.S.: Thank you all for your kind words. I really appreciate them. ♥
