Join the Rodale.com campaign with me to make your February plastic free. I am starting with my medicine bottles. I take daily med. IT is is the size of half a pea. I received my latest mail delivery (in a huge plastic bag) in a plastic bottle the size of my fist. Now, the 1/2 pea-sized tablets were like a dust sprinkled across the bottom of the bottle: they rattled around inside it like, well, peas.
In Europe I used to get my meds in small paper envelopes. Finish the pills, compost the packet. Not here, by jiminy. Those old bottles can’t be recycled. At least not by CVS, and I believe even Target has limits to it recycle program.
Seems to me life was easier and cleaner before plastic.
