The plastic wrap might not have been used this month but my goodness the plastic that came into our house this past week is INSANE! One company sells individually frozen and plastic wrapped chicken tenders. Is that really necessary? No. But guess what, with our current situation, I bought two boxes of them.
Now I could sit here writing about how I plan to tar and feather myself later for this decision. Or I can simply say, it happened, and I will try better next time. Guess which route I am going to take? The second!
Give yourself some grace, some space, and some wiggle room. I had to decide between feeding my family and avoiding the extra plastic. I opted to feed my family. What do I plan on doing in the future, buy in bulk. Not pass up on the opportunity to buy bulk.
What else am I doing to conserve natural resources? While I am working from home, I am opting to open up all of the shades so that I work under natural light rather than using extra electricity. I am shutting off our heat each afternoon for a couple hours and adding an extra layer to my body as needed. Do these measure counteract the plastic? Maybe. I don’t know. I’m only human. I am trying my best. And if you take one thing from this post, let it be to give yourself some grace during these times.
