Another failure post – because I may as well marry plastic bags at this point.

We are giving up plastic bags for good

Inspired by Sabrina’s guest post last week, I have decided to take her challenge to reject plastic. I’ve been thinking about this for a while now – that I need to stop using plastic bags.

People ask me this question all the time and it’s kind of ridiculous…

Warning: bad words. I originally posted this on my first blog, Project:Joy, which I have mostly abandoned. However, I think it’s worth sharing again. I made a few tweaks, so enjoy.   “Why do you care about that?” This question comes after I mention sex slavery, after I say I don’t believe cheating on your… Read More People ask me this question all the time and it’s kind of ridiculous…
