Keepin' It Clean
Since the bill calling for a ban on plastic bags got the shit axe in California's senate recently, educated, rational people are looking toward other avenues to improve the quality of their lives and the lives of people around them. Americans generate 10.5 million tons of plastic waste every year!!! Out of that only 2% is actually recycled; the rest ends up in our landfills, streets and most unfortunately our oceans causing lots of bad shitty things to happen to the cute animals that live there. (Insert sad face here).
One great way to mitigate the hugemongous amounts of plastic being thrown away and littered is to wipe out the initial use of these plastics. Seeing as most state and local governments apparently flunked econ 101 back in high school and can't even seem to balance a budget it's imbecilic of us to think they could accomplish the task of removing plastic bags from our stores. So aside from using reusable bags when we go to the store what the feck else can someone do to cultivate a cleaner, greener, less toxic life. Another not so fantabulous fact: Americans use 2.5 million plastic bottles every HOUR! Shit that's a lot of bottles, roughly 60 million a day. Hmmm, what can we do to lower that number...? How about following the same logic that we used for plastic bags, go reusable? Not a new idea at all but a fresh new company is upping the ante with a bamboo wrapped glass bottle that is easily cleaned in the dish washer and can even be throw in the microwave. You tree huggin hippies can even drop in your wheatgrass poopy juice. Bamboo Bottle Co. is still getting the ball rolling on the production side of their biz but they look ready to start crankin out BPA-free vessels any day now. If you can't wait for these eco-chic environment savers to hit the shelves head to their website and get your name on the list to be one of the first Bamboo Bottle beneficiaries.
I should be getting paid for this,
