Looks like it's time for more bloggers to try to live "plastics free." Magazine publishing company Rodale Inc. has declared this "Plastics-Free February," and they have eight bloggers preparing to write about the effort. The publisher is pushing readers to drop plastics for personal health benefits. That's in keeping with Rodale's overall tone -- its titles include Runner's World, Men's Health and Prevention magazines. As usual, "plastics free" doesn't really mean plastics free. No one is talking about doing without electricity, computers, plumbing, transportation or medical care. The aim is primarily at single-use plastic and packaging. Rodale's "Plastics-Free February" rules are: 1. No buying or acquiring new plastic. 2. No cooking with plastic or storing food in plastic. 3: Minimize all other plastic use. I'll keep an eye on the bloggers' progress for any interesting reports.
