Reduce, Recycle, Reuse, Rethink
I recently changed over to buying milk in glass bottles. Not only have we reduced the amount of plastic we consume, but the milk is from a local dairy that does not use RBGH.
Another plus — I like the retro feel of glass. I have always hated drinking out of plastic! Nothing ever seems as cold in plastic as in glass, don’t ya think??
I purchased a SIGG aluminum bottle for water a couple of months ago. I didn’t want to keep reusing plastic bottles (chems leach into the water). Although the green “cost” of the item has to include shipping and handling, I figure that by not using any bottled water it more than offsets those costs. So far, my SIGG keeps water super super cold and there’s no after taste.
As of May, SIGG is only selling this style of bottle. Demand has exceeded supply and SIGG is in the process of revamping production. I guess that when going green intersects with looking cool at an affordable price . . . demand goes through the roof. Glad I got my SIGG when I did. According to their website, after summer they hope to be back to filling orders.
