No dramas. So far it’s been easy. Though that may have something to do with the fact that I keep very well stocked cupboards, and already purchase my fruit and veg from farm shops. My bread comes in a paper bag, from the village store across the road. And so far I have not yet run out of anything vital.
I am trying to purchase a single mattress. I found a British company which manufacture mattresses in Englandshire. I enquired as to whether they could send a mattress to me minus the plastic vacuum packaging. The answer was no. I shall not be buying from them. Name and shame? Mr Sleeps Beds, Stoke-on-Trent.
Next I looked to source bird seed in paper bags. I’m sure some shops do sell this, but surfing the net I came across this web page.
The seeds do come in plastic resealable bags. However, you have the option to send them back for free. And they will keep reusing them.
I noticed that my toothbrush is looking a little jaded. So I ordered some sustainable bamboo toothbrushes. Apart from not being plastic, they look so much nicer!!
I’ve been reading tweets by fellow Plastically Challenged folk. Interesting that some people found packed lunch packaging a challenge. I’ve been using the same old sandwich bags for twenty years. Seriously. I have never bought cling film. The idea horrifies me.
But it’s quite a community. We are all sharing ideas and crisis!
