Tweet: Its ludicrous to say ‘BPA free’ if its being replaced w/ another endocrine disruptor. -Jay of @lifewithoutplastic asustainablemind.com/007


Most versatile item for a plastic free life:

  • The mason jar – it can become a water bottle, is good for storing bulk food items, makes great freezer and leftover storage and even a lunch container

Long-standing habit that’s contributed to personal and business success:

  • Eating well – it provides clarity of mind, increased energy, decreasing stress, better sleep and promotes healthy living overall

A cool new toy he just ordered in the mail:

  • A Pela iPhone case made out of bioplastic from plant fibers

LOTS of resources!


Parting piece of guidance:

Don’t be overwhelmed, start by simply getting out into nature. Get a sense of its importance and that will inspire you to make changes in your life
