Yummy Plastic!

by | Jan 30, 2012 | Conservation, Opinion, Sustainability | 0 comments

As reef hobbyists, we all use a LOT of plastic.  In addition to all of the gadgets and systems we have running in our tanks, we tend to dispose of a lot of plastic items including food packaging, plastic containers, plastic bags, and more.  Next time you go to throw out something, give a little thought to whether or not this item can be reused.  For example, tupperware containers can always be reused after a good soak (you can use vinegar to clean out dirty items), also, most of the bottles can be reused for things like food mixing, chemical storage, you can even create your own measuring cups with an old clear container and a Sharpie.  Do your part, reduce your consumption by recycling.
