Bye bye plastic!

Finally managed to find enough info about how to store vegetables without plastic bags, and was able to finally get rid of them! Those vegetable bags had been bothering me for a while, cause once they rip, they are useless. Here in Jacksonville you can't recycle them, so they end up in the landfill. Needless to say, that plastic contains BPA that leaches into the food, so it is just NOT good for you, no matter in what form it comes, hard plastic, soft plastic, colored, white, colorless, or the ones that say "organic" (!!!). Switch to glass, metal, paper and cloth. These days it is actually pretty easy to find all of this, and even though you may wonder if people consider you nuts and "weird" for being "different" and "picky", just know that there are people doing this all over the country and the world. Not only that, that is what people used to do not very long ago, before the "plastic invasion".
