Life Without Plastic is an amazing website, with awesome products for those of us who wish to reduce (or remove) the plastic in our lives. Sometimes we don’t even think about it how much it’s in our daily lives: toothbrushes, deodorants, face wash, shower gel, razor blade handles, kitchenware, etc. I took a look around my house and was disgusted by all the plastic in spite of my attempts to buy as little of it as possible. It’s even proliferating at health food stores like Whole Food Markets, where so much of their bulk items and other dried goods are boxed/wrapped in plastic. They’ve even sunk to packaging a few fruits and veggies in plastic, since we’re obviously too lazy to just put them loose in our shopping carts. Now we need tomatoes and apples and sliced fruit wrapped in plastic and sitting on Styrofoam.
