I was sitting in my apartment recently and I started to get really frustrated,suddenly,and very bothered, by PLASTIC!


I always recycle,re-use plastic,but I burst when I said to myself,I wanna throw all the plastic cups and plastic containers I recently accumulated,to decluter,but as I said that,I looked around and I’ve found myself living in a PLASTIC  decorated apartment.

To narrow it down,I was assessing all the stuff I accumulated made of plastic,and suddenly I just wanna get rid of it and replace it with natural products,such as wood,glass,metal,etc…as:clothes,toothbrush,cups,plates,bags,containers to store,makeup,coffee machine,even my freakin’ microwave,etc…and the list is endless.

I thought people buying water in plastic bottles clutter the Earth with plastic,but seriously,I didn’t even noticed myself,how bad it got,to accumulate,all that plastic.

Nobody ever told me:DON’T BUY THAT! IT’S PLASTIC!(as it’s HARMFUL) Everybody sais: “That one is so cheap!”…and cheap I think comes with a health bill price.I always have health on my mind,and living in a healthy environment,should be very important,as important is what you put in your mouth.

So that being said,MY 2016 RESOLUTION is: #PlasticFREE as Plastic Declutter and adopt a Natural and Organic Lifestyle.

It’s not gonna happen overnight,I know,but,baby steps,and by making better choices when I shop in the future(for food,beauty items and stuff I use everyday).It’s not like I’ve been doing everything wrong,but lately I’ve got lazy and been a little naive.

GOT PLASTIC??? Try #plasticfree and live a long and healthy life!

Until who knows what’s next,Laura

  1. Good post!! I was disgusted with myself because I have a Kureg and thought nothing about the K-cups that is until I retired. The cost is astronomical and as you say the cups themselves are harmful to the environment. My solution was to go with the reusable cup. It’s a little extra work but it won’t kill me and there is now a little less plastic in the environment.

      1. You’re absolutely right, we have to start somewhere and I think it’s better to take it in small steps for lasting change vs. trying to change everything at once. One of the things I’ve been wanting to do and am taking advantage of now is switching to organic cosmetics and skincare products. This I know is going to take time but I’m committed to making small changes.

    I agree with you. Plastic is so bad for the environment – especially if a plastic bag lands in the ocean & a sea turtle finds it 😦 – and our health; however I do support it’s use in creating humane, synthetic alternatives to animal derived items like leather. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polyvinyl_chloride#Clothing_and_furniture

      I support leather and rubber,rather than polyester and PVC!

        I kinda understand why you support leather but what about the cruelty involved? Leather is also bad for the environment considering the toxic chemicals used in the tanning processes. Leather isn’t just a by-product of the meat industry, there is a supply & demand for leather. Most animals killed for food are still conscious when slaughtered, so I would assume about the same for those killed for leather, especially cows in India, etc where laws are lax compared to developed countries. Not to mention that animal abuse always runs rampant at slaughterhouses & abbatoirs as the workers become desensitized to the animals, treat them as objects & don’t allow them feelings–due to the nature of the work.
