Several months ago we went through a phase of minimizing our plastic consumption in our home. Now, it’s really a pain in the butt to do and it can get rather expensive because we had to find items to replace the things we were using that were made of plastic i.e. yoga mats, water bottles, etc. Most non-plastic water bottles still have plastic in them BTW, specifically around the mouth and bottle top. It’s apparently really hard to get rid of because the plastic acts as a barrier for preventing liquid from seeping out of the bottle. More on that later.
