1-4 are all false. I teach graduate social work students and am proposing we host a booth at next year's Earth Day Fair in our city. It would be fun and inspiring to have the entire booth focused on plastic-free living aiming for zero waste. To have your book at the booth for people to look through (with a sign indicating they could purchase an e-version) would be awesome. I do hope I'm chosen to receive the book as the campaign for my local library to purchase it has failed.

Check out the very interesting novel Ill Wind by Kevin J. Anderson and Doug Beason about a microbe that was designed to clean up oil spills but ends up consuming anything that's petrocarbon-based. It was a great read for plastic-free enthusiasts.

Shaklee sells the following to clean your face plastic-free: Meadow Blend Soap-Free Cleansing Bar. It comes in a paperboard box without any plastic wrap on the inside or outside, it smells heavenly, and works well. I also just bought their dryer sheets which don't come wrapped in any plastic and can be thrown in the paper recycling bin after use.

We don't have a lot of money so when my 2 1/2 year old nephew Ziggy moved in with us and it was clear he had a drummer's heart, my husband bound together several empty cardboard canisters, stuffed old rags into them, and presented him with his new set of "bongo drums." He was thrilled! I also took an empty cardboard box and carved a face into it jack-o-lantern style. Thus was born "Robot Box Monster." Ziggy and I have had hours of fun running around the house with Robot Box Monster on our heads--a fun, free, creative homemade toy that will quickly break down for recycling when we're done with it.
