Sneaky Green Tip #3
Ditch the plastic to go green. When I first moved out on my own I would save the plastic containers from take out, yogurt, cheese... anything so I wouldn't have to spend big bucks on tupperware. After the BPA craze when companies started removing BPA from their plastics, I thought it would be fine to start saving those new BPA free containers. Then I read that often times, in place of BPA, companies are using substances more harmful than even BPA... we just don't know about it yet. I don't know who true this may be, but I'm not willing to gamble on it either.
So now I have a glass fetish. I collect glass everywhere and anywhere I can. I save my spaghetti sauce jars. I save the apple juice jar. I buy glass containers from every yard sale, thrift shop, and rummage sale I see. The tops of my cabinets are decorated with my glass finds, and my cupboards, and fridge are full of the work horse variety. I love glass!
