A Green Experiment: 7 Days Without Plastic

A Green Experiment: 7 Days Without Plastic

7 days without plastic. It sounds impossible, right? Well, actually, we think it probably is.

But, Zadi Diaz over at EPIC FU is giving up the bad, unnecessary plastic for 7 days. At least she's trying to ...

She's blogging and documenting the whole thing via video right here.

Her real goal (inspired by Sustainable Dave) is to avoid bringing any new plastic into her life -- she'll keep on using the plastic she has.

We're pretty curious to see how she does. She's promised to document any new plastic she accidentally or necessarily acquires. As she pointed out -- what if she gets a scrape and needs a bandage? (Actually, we think she could probably still avoid plastic).

Her first challenge? On day 1 she prepares to take a trip. Traveling to Las Vegas without plastic? Sounds like a tough task, indeed.

We're thinking that this little experiment will be harder than it sounds. However, just being aware of how much unnecessary plastic crosses our path is a step in the right direction.
