You may have noticed that I have a few
obnoxious strong opinions. Like, such as…(insert Ms. South Carolina quote)…. I have anxiety attacks when people don’t take advantage of their free curb-side recycling…. I launch into conniption fits when I think of the inventor of Styrofoam… Last night I dreamt about digging through trash at a party, just to sort the empty water bottles to the recycle bin. Which I have actually done…on frequent occasion.
I have a problem people.
For the past few days, J and I have been talking about how many disposable plastic sandwich bags we go through in a year. Between him taking his lunch up to class 3 days a week and me bringing my daily almonds to work, we go through about a box every 6 weeks…I’ve tried washing them and reusing, but I just don’t feel so confident about that idea…. I never feel like I get them really clean. Plus, we don’t know what to do with them when they’re no longer usable and mostly… it’s hard for me to say…. they end up… in the trash… on their way to a land fill. Whomp Whomp.
Did you know that more than 20 million sandwich bags from school lunches go into landfills EVERY DAY??!!!
So we had enough. Today is the day to do something, right?? Right.
I did something that sent me dancing around and singing with joy…. I ordered… LunchSkins. Who knew that reusable lunch bags could make a girl so happy?

Aren’t they great? I can’t wait until my shipment arrives… until then, I’ll be here… washing and reusing my disposable plastic sandwich bags…. praying against BPA poisoning.
Over and out… for now,
