Trial and learning.
It has became apparent that quite possibly, I was the last person to realise that by reducing plastic bags that I would need a plan for various other types of rubbish and associated disposal.
Some others say that they use (single use) plastic bags in their bins with the view that its recycling – I don’t agree as – it still ends up as land fill or worse, or animals incorrectly consume plastic as a food source. That said, I hypocritically and embarrassingly bought a roll of plastic bin bags. Oh no – sigh – followed by a few recriminating thoughts.
Disclaimer:- purchase does not equal use. My validation comes by way of having a few wardrobe items, that if they could talk, would collaborate to never being used/worn!
I digress; it was like that the process of thinking, and plastics, became diametrically opposed. (Arguably a bit like the correct use of commas, maybe). And therefore, there would be nothing flawed with an excuse to suggest that I am accustomed to relying on plastics as a convenience. So not conscientious, and so carrying above my plastic bag weight. Bring back the paper bag, as less must be best, ‘cause for sure, my wardrobe would have no complaint.
The rubbish point is; how to dispose of differing types of waste.
My thoughts wonder to the baby boomers and if they remember, or practice how they managed their rubbish back in the 1980’s.
Currently my real dilemma is how to the cover the cheese now that its opened, if not with cling wrap or a sandwich bag? Maybe it should be consumed immediately with crackers.
