Get Your Reusable Water Bottle and Utensils! The Great Pacific Garbage Patch has Spoken!

Haven’t heard of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch yet?  Besides the chemicals that that likely affect human health, like phalates and bisphenol-A, and the use of finite and polluting fossil fuels, the plastics that are so important and ubiquitous in our society are toxic to our oceans as well.  Surfline.com has a good article on the Great Pacific Garbage Patch and a Good Morning America segment too.

Refuse to drink bottled water and don’t use disposable utensils! Get a reusable bottle, we like Klean Kanteen stainless steel bottles (for kids too!)and SIGG bottles, or some plastic bottles – ‘if it is a #2 HDPE , or a #4 LDPE, or a #5 PP, your bottle is fine“.  (You can even make your own SIGG bottle at cafepress.com for cheap or grab The S.E.E.P.’s “Consume Like You Give a Damn” series bottle!

As for the sporks, grab a mismatched set of utensils, a camping mess kit, or there are some bamboo utensil travel kits at gowesty.com. Throw them wrapped up in a cloth napkin in your backpack, purse, laptop bag, or man-purse and do your best to stop using disposables!
