This week’s Do One Thing is about glass versus plastic, and is inspired by something my friend Beth at Fake Plastic Fish wrote about a while back on her site. As some of you may know, Beth’s site is about reducing our use of plastic, and she does an amazing job of detailing what plastic comes into her house and the different ways she has avoided it altogether. Well, one of her posts talked about the vitamins she started buying because they come in glass bottles instead of plastic, and a giant “Ah-Ha!” went off in my head. I could do that! The vitamins she buys are from New Chapter Organics, and not only are they in glass bottles but they are organic and plant-based as well. It’s a win-win! So when I finally needed new vitamins, I bought the Men’s product from them and have been very happy about both the ingredients and the fact that it’s not a plastic bottle. Thanks to Beth for the inspiration, and remember – if you can, buy the glass version of any product. Glass is more likely to be recycled, is stronger than plastic, and doesn’t have the ability to leech into our food and water!
