Today’s addition to the monthly packaging reduction goal: no more plastic utensils or paper plates at work. I head to the kitchen for some morning toast, not 10 feet from my office. I grab a paper plate and a plastic knife, both which will hit the trash can in less then 15 minutes. Worse yet, at that desk of mine, not 10 feet away, I have in my drawer, silverware and a heavy plastic dish that can easily be used as a plate. Since 95% of my meals lately are eaten at work, I can easily make a difference with the simple step of saying “no” to disposable cutlery and plates. (I’m also going to try to be better about composting my organic garbage… seems I only eat fruit now when I can find it in the work kitchen!)
