IMG_5708“You seriously keep that in your purse?” I’ve heard multiple times when I pull out a metal straw. I recently found out you cannot recycle plastic straws due to their size. I keep this cute little canvas bag filled with my fork, knife, spoon, metal straw and yes, chopsticks. I don’t think I’ve used the chopsticks yet but at some point they will come in handy. My To-Go Ware is probably one of the best investments I’ve ever made. It totally eliminates the use of plastic silverware and when you might just need a knife for cutting an apple, I’m your girl.


Why not plastic straws you may ask? According to Recycle Bank, “Plastic straws are made from polypropylene, which is a byproduct of petroleum, a fossil fuel that requires an incredible amount of energy and natural resources to extract and refine. Polypropylene is identifiable by the resin identification code 5 and is commonly recyclable, just often not in drinking straw format. Size is the biggest barrier to straw recycling. As plastic travels down conveyor belts while being sorted, small items like bottle caps and straws fall through the cracks and end up being sent to the landfill.”
In an effort to ditch the plastic, I just purchased these great Chico Bags. They’re almost as exciting to me as my To-Go Ware. My glass containers were getting a little heavy so these bags just made my day! They are washable, water and stain resistant and they help to eliminate the many single use plastic bags that flood landfills. Do your part and grab some reusable ware next time you run out of baggies for your lunch sack.
