Ew, gross! I love it!!

Despite my post about junk food earlier today, I love this new subway ad campaign from NYC's Department of Health and Mental Hygiene. Because in addition to making us fat, sugary drinks come with plastic bottles and caps. And if you take a walk in my neighborhood you will see lots and lots of those bottles and caps on the sidewalks, in the gutters, washed into storm drains, and thrown down onto the banks of the East River.

See all the ads here.

Hi Juli,

The UK National Zero Waste Week on MyZeroWaste ( starts on Monday 7th. People can reduce food, plastic or other types of waste. Mrs Green will advice newcomers, where required.

Following all the negatives about plastic bottles I aim to avoid them altogether for the week (milk jugs mainly).

As for plastic bottle soft drinks, I never use these. Instead glass bottle, with metal cap, alternatives are the Zero Waste choice locally.
