Blog Fav: Fake Plastic Fish

Reducing your plastic consumption is not an easy task. Lucky for us, Fake Plastic Fish provides a wealth of information on how to do it.

The blog was created by Beth Terry, a California resident who's interested in protecting the environment and decreasing the amount of plastic she sends to landfills. Her online journal gives an interesting glimpse into her everyday life and includes many, many blog entries about about her adventures in finding plastic free products. Very interesting stuff.

See the right hand column of the blog for a list of entries by topic. And if you have any questions, definitely leave Beth a comment. She's swift with her responses and knows a ton!

Thanks so much for the mention! I may know a ton now compared to what I knew when I first started doing this, but the more I learn, the more I realize there is that I don't know! These issues are super complicated!

Oh, by the way, Evert-Fresh bags are made from plastic, as I suspected. This was confirmed by a contact at, but she didn't know what kind of plastic. She gave me the e-mail address of the manufacterer, so I will follow up. She thinks they are recyclable, but I would be willing to bet that they are not based on the information I learned this weekend and the recycling facility.

Ah ha... I just removed Evert-bags from that blog post to totally escape that bit of misinformation.
