If you've been following me for a while now, you’ve heard me say "Recycling is a good place to start but a HORRIBLE place to stop". You can ALWAYS do more than just recycling. You can start refusing. But while we’re here let’s learn a little bit about getting the most use out of the plastics already in circulation.

Unpopular opinion amidst this #PlasticFreeJuly:
I love plastic. It's an amazing material responsible for so many advancements in science, medicine, and technology.
This is also a perfect example of how sustainability is so nuanced, you know?
If you’re reading this, it’s probably on a plastic phone.
Your car or public transportation vehicle is probably made of at least 50% plastic. Being made of plastic, allows it to be lighter and more fuel-efficient which means fewer emissions!
Car seats and helmets are made out of plastic because it's a strong material that keeps precious cargo like bebes and brains safe.
Firefighter uniforms are made with plastics protecting them in extreme heat up to 1,200 degrees Fahrenheit.
Most notably, plastic has revolutionized the medical field. We’ve been able to increase life spans and save lives with increased sterility and plastic machinery.
And, this is just the tip of the iceberg. Plastic in itself isn't a bad material. In fact, plastic is pretty great. What's not great is how we choose to use it.
Plastic is a material that lasts forever and it should be treated as such! It shouldn't be used for things like coffee cups, grocery bags, and STYROFOAM ANYTHING. Y'all know how I feel about styrofoam.
I know I give plastic a hard time, but it's important to remember that it can be pretty amazing too.
tl;dr: Relationship status with plastic: it's complicated.

I asked and A LOT of guys came to my rescue. In case you missed it In my stories a couple of days ago, my mom gave me her old contact cases to figure out what to do with. I don’t wear contacts or glasses, so I sat there racking my brain what to do with these besides a lip balm and lip tint combo. So I asked you all for suggestions and these were the main ideas:
* lip balm and lip scrub * Lip balm and lip tint
* Put little bits of makeup for travel
* Scoop out Lipstick remnants from a tube and smush into the case to get every last bit!
* Store Earrings (and earring backs)
* Store Necklaces
* All the lotions (or coconut oil)
* Pills/vitamins * toothpaste when traveling
* Spices (for camping purposes)
* Math games for kids (write numbers on them)
* Finger Painting trays
* Poker chips .
If you do want to dispose of them tho, do not put them in your directly in your recycling bin.
Due to their size and packaging materials, recycling facilities typically cannot handle contact lens processing. Check with your local recycling company to confirm what they can accept. If they don’t accept these, they can be processed at a specialty recycling facility, like @terracycle !
And for the contact lenses, top foil and blister packs - you can recycle them from @bauschlomb (in partnership with terracycle). They have drop off locations across the US and you can also mail them too!
If I missed any suggestions, drop them below to help out toner contact wearers :)

If your cannabis oil has a dark brown color doesn´t mean automatically that it is bad quality.
The color also depends on the type of extraction used and on the concentration.
If the oil is from a certified laboratory probably the color is the result of a very high concentration and maybe because it’s a real full spectrum extract.
Also, the amount of terpenes can affect the color…
In our opinion a real full spectrum product, has a clear green or clear brown color…
That being said, dark color not necessarily means bad quality, but if the person selling it to you cannot tell you why it’s so dark you should be alarmed!
Si su aceite de cannabis tiene un color marrón oscuro no significa automáticamente que es de mala calidad.
El color también depende del tipo de extracción utilizado y de la concentración.
Si el aceite es de un laboratorio certificado, probablemente el color es el resultado de una concentración muy alta y quizás porque es un extracto de espectro completo real.
Además, la cantidad de terpenos puede afectar el color ... En nuestra opinión, un producto de espectro completo real, tiene un color verde claro o marrón claro ... Dicho esto, el color oscuro no necesariamente significa mala calidad, pero si la persona que se lo vende no puede decirle por qué es tan oscuro, ¡debería alarmarse!

#GoodStewardPH TIP: Eat fruit as a snack. It's #PlasticFreeJuly, and we want the switch to be easy, accessible, and cheap for first-timers. We suggest snacking on package-free fruits. No need to elaborate on how many wins you can get from this. Say goodbye to plastic from crackers, biscuits, chips, and sandwiches and other throwaway packaging making a heap on your bin and our streets and shores. This is a very doable yet big-impact switch you can do NOW.
