I remember reading about the harmful effects of plastic water bottles, both the harm for humans who drink water that has been stored in plastic and also the harm to the earth from the remaining plastic waste. I was certain I did not want to drink or eat from plastic, so I started using glass. Wow! What a transformation! Not only does it feel fabulous to take responsibility for my health, but the freedom from going to the store, buying plastic-bottled drinks and plastic-container food, hauling all the products back home, storing all the products, consuming all the products and finally having to discard (recycle) all the products every day, every week, every year is quite a production! Now life is one and done! #soeasy #sohappy
