One Change for Earth Day 2017

Did you vow to make a CHANGE for Earth Day 2017?  I DID! For a long time I’ve had this gnawing feeling in my gut that it is time to stop using plastic water bottles. It almost seems crazy to write that…Why does it have to be such a big deal, why haven’t I just STOPPED using them? Too lazy to bother with change? After all, NOT using plastic water bottles will not be a big inconvenience, it will save me money, and I already have substitute glasses to use instead of the “disposable” plastics. I am no longer going to fool myself by washing and reusing a plastic bottle multiple times before finally releasing them to live forever in a landfill. Even though we put our plastics in the recycle bin, I have long known that most plastic bottles are not really recycled. So my CHANGE this year is to “Not buy or use plastic water bottles…period. Come on, this is SIMPLE! After all, I managed to live just fine through the PRE-plastic water bottle era. That’s it, when I go to the store for now on, bottled water bottles will not go into my cart…ever.
