@Joyce Bonamassa-Mirro Sadly, that is the Oxo spinner I mentioned above which is stainless steel on the outside but has a plastic basket on the inside. :-(

@cbuilder Hi. Thanks for entering. I re-formatted your email address to keep spammers away from you. :-) I don't know if this helps or not.

@Cory at AquarianBath LOL. I did read about that during my research, but it just seemed way too complicated for me. Perhaps I will try it the next time I buy kale just to see what happens. I love experiments.

@Jill I hear we might be meeting on Saturday at Sharon's jewelry show.
@Amy Beckerman Zarndt If you use cloth, the cloth will absorb a lot of the liquid, so there might not be as much water coming through. Seriously, I have this all figured out in my mind. I see you standing outside your shower with your arm inside the shower holding the bag, and you are whirling it around in front of you like a pinwheel... rather than over your head like I was doing outside. Seriously. I can see it happening. :-)
@jonnie Interesting. Could you please tell me more about using the salad spinner for Bokashi? Do you have a link?
@Flashmaggie Cloth produce/bulk bags are essential for purchasing from bulk bins without plastic. Since I already have a stash of cloth bags, I'd rather use one of those than risk spilling the lettuce out the sides of a towel. I see your point -- use what you have. I have cloth bags!
@EcoCatLady Just do it in the shower. :-)

Aw, no video. At least no video that I'm aware of. :-)

@EcoM8s Thanks for the recipe. Since you mentioned "salad spinner," you might be interested in today's blog post comparing different plastic-free salad spinning methods. :-) http://myplasticfreelife.com/2013/11/a-tale-of-two-plastic-free-salad-spinners/

@Alison Marie Hi. I don't have one specifically for styrofoam. The Take Out Without campaign has a more general card here: http://www.takeoutwithout.org/downloads.html If you do create one for foam, it would be great if you would share it with us. The discussion forum would be another great place to do that. http://myplasticfreelife.com/forum/

@susan lehnen I use glass jars in the freezer too. But I also use some airtight stainless steel and glass containers that I purchased from the company Life Without Plastic. Here is my review of the stainless ones: http://myplasticfreelife.com/2008/09/plastic-free-in-freezer-airtight/ And here is my review of the glass ones: http://myplasticfreelife.com/2011/06/airtight-glass-food-storage-containers-review-giveaway/
The stainless ones come in many different sizes, from small to massive. I use both kinds in the freezer. They are relatively expensive compared to glass jars, but will last a lifetime.

@Beth I agree! I use Toothy Tabs every day and mentioned them in my book! (But this post isn't really about toothpaste.) :-)

@Sarah Plus Tom's is actually owned now by Colgate-Palmolive. But I didn't know that at the time. So the real point to this post is not that Tom's of Maine is a healthy alternative but that when given the choice between what I thought was a healthy alternative and what I knew was not, I chose the one I knew was not because it tasted better. I hope no one thinks that I am advocating Tom's of Maine in this post. Should I clarify???

@Clif That's a cool idea, but one would have to weigh all the plastic first before mounting it on the canvas or board or whatever the background is.

This sounds fabulous. Did you get the name of the person you talked to? I'd like to interview the company. You can email me directly at beth at myplasticfreelife dot com.

@CyndiNorwitz LOL. It's the link I posted -- I think you must have clicked to another page to see the PLA labels. But that link should take you to the BioStone labels, which are made from minerals.
@CyndiNorwitz @BethTerry Yeah, I wanted to talk to them but I don't have the answer yet. Would the biostone not work? I'm not a huge fan of PLA because it's usually made from GMO corn.
@CyndiNorwitz Hi. Have you seen this? http://www.lightninglabels.com/biostone-labels I just found it today when Googling. Haven't looked into it.
