Why can juices and water come in waxed milk cartons. We should get back to going to the butcher and having fresh meat wrapped in paper. Above all stop packaging with styrofoam. The use of Biodegradable plastics must be expanded and utilized no matter the cost. People have to be forced to go green through marketing and legislation. Mother Earth and Father Sky ...forever!

We used to drink water from the tap, now everyone buys water in bottles.

There was a very horrible and sad accident that happen in Montreal,Canada; This lady went shopping for baby clothing, when she returned home after a few hours ,the baby sitter told her that her little girl ( 1 month old) was sleeping,so she tanked and paid the girl,after,she went into her babies room with the plastic in which the store had put the child's clothes,all exited about her purchase she took them out of the bag,and started taking of the different tags,as he was doing that,she had folded the big plastic bag on the foot of the crib,she was nearly finished when the phone rang,as she rushed out of the room to answer the phone so the ringing would not wake up her baby; she inadvertently swoop up the bag right on the baby face,while she was on the phone,the child suffocated on the bag and died...When she went back into the room,she looked into the crib to see her baby,in horror ,she realized that the little girl was not breathing, she pick up the infant and tried mouth to mouth resuscitation, to no avail...with the baby I her arm she rushed to call late..the little 1 month old was D.O.A. I know all these facts,because she was my patient for 7 months...Ridden by guilt and totally devastted, she eventually,did the unthinkable...I will never forget this WOMAN, and the very cruel way to learn a life lesson...And since this case made headlines,it also made legislature ,to create laws for the protection of kids in general. As Bob Dylan wrote"' HOW MANY DEATHS WILL IT TAKE BEFORE PEOPLE KNOW""

Years ago when I was still in school my mother used to pack my lunch in Tupperware containers. They seemed to be the best at keeping my sandwich and slice of pie or cake edible and not dried out like wax paper did. Don't know what happened to those Tupperware containers as I've not seenbthem in years. When I go to the grocery I have reusable bags, two that I bought and about four that were sent to me from some charities I support. They come in handy for carrying my griceries., but I still reuse some plastic bags.

I have been using the same fabric shopping bags for years. They are also easier to carry than the supermarket plastic bags. I also have a wheeled bag and walk to the 30 minutes to the supermarket. (lucky to live that close and have a choice of two a few minutes apart)

I do some of what is recommended but I know it is insufficient. As my school report used to say with regular monotony "could do better".

Wrapping or covering food in fabric is not as effective as using wax paper. Cheap and effective. Maybe not for as long as plastic. Managing portions carefully might reduce storage necessity.
