Its nice to see how other people are doing with the plastic free thing and the challenges they still face. Good work Sarah!


I have found that some of my new habits have completely stuck - like always using cloth bags for shopping, using a bar shampoo and soap from lush instead of plastic containers, and I have completely stopped using cosmetics (except on special occasions) lotions and face-wash. I wash my face now with water and green tea. I used to have problem skin but omitting lotion, facewash and cosmetics have completely cleared it up! However, I still have problems with finding completely plastic-free groceries in my area (Glasgow UK) and sometimes have slipped up on the plastic free takeaway :(  I am moving back to Canada soon and will use the opportunity to try to re-evaluate my plastic usage. Thanks for the inspiration! Cheers x
