Due to growing concern over bottled water (I'll let others elaborate), I have eschewed the ubiquitous plastic menaces in favor of.....a glass jar with a lid. Wow. Sexy, I know. I don't get styrofoam cups for my coffee fixx either; I have some rather attractive ceramic mugs with lids for my hot beverages. But back to my jar; it used to contain spaghetti sauce, and when the contents were gone and it was being rinsed for the recycling, I noticed it was a rather nice jar. Good size, wide mouth, measurments printed on the side. So I saved it with all the rest of the jars in my weird little jar collection in the cupboard....why do I save those things? I've been using said jar as a water bottle, but just today made its liquid refreshment readily accessible with a drill and a vinyl grommet from the hardware store.
Ta-da! The Hippy Sippy!
Can one take Reduce/Reuse/Recycle too far? So far, not that I have observed. Do what you can, and I'm totally comfortable with it. I'm not yet ready to share the other weird stuff I do in the name of recycling or preserving my health on the wide wide web! I'll stick with sharing what I'm sewing.
Now that I've strayed into DIY territory, let's head back to the regularly irregular sewing blog!
