Don’t panic, I haven’t given up on my 30 Days Wild. Nor my Plastic Challenge.
The weather has been quite nasty here in Cheshire. And instead of taking lunch outside and making friends with baby squirrels, I’ve been sitting on the inside watching the dementor sent rain thrashing against the window.
But inbetween working fulltime, attending a golden wedding anniversary celebration, and a session with my kinesiologist I have managed to:
– offer to volunteer on a badger vaccination project.
– Help to organise a new stand at Rutland Birdfair.
– Begin project managing a bird-saving road trip across Europe.
Today was my first visit to a supermarket since Plastic Challenge month began. Loose bread went into a bag that I took with me. Loose onions went into a bag that I took with me.
Rice milk. Ah. In recyclable tetra packs. But I still don’t know what happens to the plastic pouring bit, which all brands now infuriatingly have. Any tetra pack recyclers out there who would like to enlighten me? And to the manufacturers, please, go back to the plastic free cartons.
Everything in the bargain bin was pre-packaged in plastic. And I kept away from my usual weaknesses – crisps/tortillas and humus. Instead I came home and made a pickled walnut and black olive tepanade. Mmm. Jealous?
