This post is supposed to be about "easy ways to reduce plastic use." But really, what's so easy about that? These days, our fast-paced lifestyles are centered on convenience and technology, both of which require plastic, right? Our beverages (water, sodas, sports drinks, iced lattes) and food (meats, cheeses, milk, energy bars, cereal, bread, frozen dinners, whole roasted chickens, and sometimes even produce) all come packaged in plastic. And our toys -- whether for grown ups (computer, iPhone, camera) or kids (from teethers to training wheels) are all made from and/or packaged in plastic, right?
How can it possibly be easy to give up?

I am still trying to work out if the scrappage scheme is supposed to be a green one.I hope not, otherwise it is the biggest load of Greenwash I have heard in recent times.
I met my husband because of the first Earth Day I was covering all the "movement people" for CBS News - they had hired me because I knew all the 60s anti-war leaders - so when Earth Day emerged, I was assigned to the 'treehuggers" too.
The power of what having a social media network can do for an organization has never been more clear than the following example.
A conservation organization, "Replanting the Rainforests"
embarked on an experiment using only social media outlets. They
contacted bloggers, Facebook users and people on Twitter and asked them
to blog, post and tweet about their content for one month. Nothing
extra really, just a mention of their mission while doing what they
always do. The results are staggering.
