So, Here we go!

First off, my last post was about the ecological and health effects of plastics, and how to reduce how much plastic is in our homes. There are a few products that I’d like to link that are specifically related to that theme.

Here’s a 5 pack of stainless steel tumblers, with lids, stainless steel straws, and silicone sleeves and straw tips. Super great deal – only about $4 for each cup! That’s equivalent in price to the cheap toddler sippy cups, but way more durable and non-toxic. tumblers

Here’s a set of 9 washable, reusable mesh produce bags for almost 50% off, with almost 700 reviews. Excellent value, and a huge step in the right direction for avoiding those awful plastic produce bags. Produce Bags
