Banish Plastic

If you know of a way to help save our planet, even just a small part of it put it here. Also if you want to ask how to help, or even if you want to promote your environmental organisation. All goes here.

Running out of sand

And a third on how we are

Interesting thought - keep all your plastic containers and such as they could be come valuable.

Just by the by... in Bulgaria, just about every village house has a cellar full of bottled fruit and veggies. Home preserving is a way of life, and plastic free.

Yep when we lived on the farm when I was young there were cellars used to stock preserved veg - those kilner jars were hand me downs and essential to the way of life as were the long low benches for storing apples in straw. Nowadays we all live in smaller houses without the storage space or cellars so freezer all our produce in ............ plastic. It wouldn't be worth me having allotments if I needed cellar space - a one bedroom bungalow doesn't have that sort of facility. :wink: :roll:
