Want to live with less plastic but feel overwhelmed by the enormity of the task?  Try my new eBook: 7 Easy Ways To Go Plastic Free.  It's an introduction to going with less plastic for health or environmental reasons.  You'll find seven practical areas of your daily life where you can replace plastic things with their healthier, more eco-friendly counterparts, or even do without plastic all together. 
It's available on Kindle Direct for free for Amazon Prime members, or only $2.99.

Very inspiring looking at their studio - we also like the plastic bottle wall! Wouldn't it be cool if they could somehow put LED lights in some or all of the bottles that could turn on and off as you get closer to them or as you enter or leave the room or....turn different colors through-out the day...the possibilities are endless...

I saw this clip on tv this weekend.  Really funny slow motion videos of all sorts of animals getting dry.

We Can Recycle Plastic

This excellent presentation provided by Mike Biddie on TED.com speaks about a feasible solution for taking plastic OUT of landfills and passing it through a process that would transform waste plastic into a material that companies can purchase to make new products.

In time I hope to learn more about this gentleman's company, and I also hope to learn about how it would be possible to support his process or reproduce it to create another place in the world that can have a solution instead of just another problem.
