Fantastic Plastic

Oh I know, the title is a complete contradiction to all nunde beliefs but I am still being as nunde as possible(nunde does = natural after all).

You see my friend is clearing out her clutter and she even preceded her question with an "I know you don't like plastic but..." and then she offered me her old Tupperware. Um Yah !!! Ill take preloved Tupperware any day. This stuff is pure vintage gold and is perfect for mobile storage. I will still never ever ever buy plastic containers, EVER but I will gladly take your old Tupperware and I can put it in my "reclaimed, re-used, recycled etc" category to ease my nunde mind.
So while we are on this topic maybe I can prod you to ponder. Do you buy plastic? Bottles, cutlery, plates, storage containers....the list goes on? Do your really need to? Next time you go to buy anything that is plastic ponder the less toxic alternatives that have been around for longer. Or ...raid your friends Tupperware:)
 Have a great Monday girls.
 Cheers
Melanie

hahaha you are too cute! I LOVE that idea. I am the same way. I only buy glass, etc. BUT...if I can use old plastic (but nice) to store things in, I will take advantage of that.

Happy Sunday!! :)

I have to confess that I buy and use plastic containers, as well as plastic wrap although I try to sparingly use it.
With the children grown up there is less (or no more need) for cups and cutlery, that any way I washed and rewashed before putting them back into their lunch boxes, inspite of the fact that they were all laughing at me...

Sophia - I have gone mad saving jars to replace plastic for food and it just makes it feel so much more cleaner. I still have Tupperware from another lifetime though.

Arance- thanks so much for stopping by and good on you for reusing plastic where you can. It all helps.

Aisha - stainless steel containers are perfect for freezing and taking stuff to work in. Plastic is full of dioxins and you are my dearest friend so I dont want you being poisoned...go buy some stainless steel containers and now I hear you saying you cant microwave it and my response to that is firstly ...so what and secondly, if u must, then tip it on a ceramic plate then nuke it:)
