I just finished cleaning out that cabinet we see on TV all the time when all those plastic containers come crashing down. Only in my case, just spilling out. I keep them in a bottom cabinet. Lot of bottoms and top that don't match up. Out they go.
Every time I go to a yard sale or second hand shop, I always look for those glass containers our parents had. But those aren't useful when it comes to the freezer for small amounts like the juice of one lemon. I am given a good feeling when I see a program showing a city or other facility recycling their waste materials that are collected each week. It makes me feel better about having
to use plastic. And our city does provide large containers for recycling. This building cooperates also. Do the tenants? For the most part they do.
I don't like using plastic. Get a spot of grease on it, and I swear even Dawn can't remove it. It might work great on ducks and others that are caught in an oil spill. But not on any plastic item I own. But I have to believe our city does something with it, since they provide a large container for us to place our empty bottles and plastic jars in them.
