A Confession and The Skinny on Plastic

Hey Everyone!  Got a little sidetracked, but we’re back with Thankless Tips and Tricks Thursdays!  I hope you are enjoying them!  I’d love to hear any ideas you have for them!  I’ll gladly do the research and find tips and tricks on whatever subjects you suggest!!!

Okay, so I have a confession to make:  when I was a teenager, throwing stuff out the window and wasting didn’t even get a second thought.  I just did it.  No remorse.

Now, that being said I have to also say this.  I’m not a believer in the whole global warming thing.  I don’t think we have enough of an impact that we are altering the temperature.  Well, except in cities with all that asphalt.  Anyway, I know that science shows that the earth goes through natural periods of warming and cooling.  We aren’t all that powerful in the grand scheme of things.

However, I have become aware of some important things, like we really are wasteful people and we are killing nature.  A prime example is the birds nest in my front yard.  The bird has used plastic and remnants of a coke can in her nest.  How sad is that!?!  And that, ladies and gentlemen, is just the first example I get stepping out my front door!

So, this week I’ve decided to post about how long it takes for plastic to break down!  Let’s find some ways to re-use them!

PET(E) – This is the easiest plastic to recycle. Add to it that these materials are relatively cheap and you have the perfect container for soda bottles, water bottles, clamshell packaging, potato chip bags, produce bags and several other grocery-type packaging. Actual breakdown time for this type of plastic under perfect conditions can range from 5 to 10 years.

HDPE – This is probably the most recognized recyclable plastic and is used to make detergent bottles, bleach bottles, milk cartons, shampoo and conditioner bottles, motor oil and many other non-food items. These plastics will degrade in just under 100 years depending on the thickness of the plastic used.

PVC – PVC can be found in a number of items from pipes to children’s toys. PVC does not readily degrade and when it does it gives off a number of toxic materials. This is the single worst plastic according to several health organizations. Greenpeace has been lobbying to stop the use of PVC because of the dioxin produced during its manufacture.

LDPE Low – This is what our current plastic grocery bags are made of. If exposed to ultra violet light, these bags have been estimated to break down in as little as 500 years with a conservative average time of 1000 years. If there is no exposure to a light source, say at the bottom of a landfill, the plastic may remain intact indefinitely.

PP – This material is generally found in more permanent capacities such as rope, clothing and performed shower kits. It is highly resistant to photo degradation and will not decay for millennia.

PS – This is the plastic in Styrofoam packaging peanuts, cups, coolers and many other lightweight applications. This type of plastic will break down in under 50 years. The surface area exposed to sunlight will determine the exact rate as the more surface area will mean more photons reaching the plastic and a quicker photo degradation process.

Other Types – This includes anything not in codes one through six. Most plastics in this section do not breakdown and are considered permanently, chemically bonded.

So are you as shocked as I was???  
How do you re-use plastic????

Crave Coffee 2018 Holiday Gift Guide Giveaway

 

Glass Straws Review

glass straw

Hey everyone!  With the holiday season fast coming upon us, I wanted to review some things that we could use for gifts so the awesome people over at Glass Dharma has allowed me to review their glass straws!!!

Pros:  great for the environment, pretty, makes you feel kinda classy, comes in a variety of colors, shapes, sizes, and designs, easy to clean and they have specially made brushes to clean them with in case anything gets stuck inside!, GREAT for the environment!

Another pro is the way it is made!  It’s made with the same process the people at Pyrex make their glass!  I love Pyrex and have some really old Pyrex dishes so I like that they are made the same way!

Guarantees:  Breakage and satisfaction guarantee!  Taken from their PDF regarding Glass Dharma: We take great pride in the workmanship of every piece we make. We use exclusively borosilicate glass (Pyrex® and Simax® are familiar brand names). Occasionally a crack may occur unnoticed before the annealing process takes place. This would significantly weaken the glass. We guarantee all of our work against such rare defects. It is also because these defects are sometimes difficult to detect that we guarantee against ANY breakage. This gives you the benefit of the doubt!!

Cons: none really, however I did learn that I tend to ‘grab’ straws with my teeth.  No worries, it didn’t hurt.  LOL

Price:  $6.60-$8.50

Great For:  These straws would really make a great gift for the person that has everything.  I would almost guarantee he/she wouldn’t have these!  (Since they are fairly new)  I also think they would make great hostess gifts!  Of course, they’d make great gifts for anyone that loves to entertain!

My Two Cents: I really like them.  I wasn’t sure how I felt about the concept, but I’m loving them.  Did you know that it takes a plastic bag over a 100 years to degrade???  I think using these straws will do a nice little bit in my part of helping the environment!  I read that stat and am still in shock!  Furthermore, and I know this sounds crazy, but I can totally see me and my girls sipping our ice tea (we’re southern, you just have to understand) and enjoying great conversation!  Makes me feel all grown up and sophisticated!  LOL.


Have you used glass straws???
Which one would you like if you won?
What would you use them for???

Herb Roasted Chicken

HerbRoastedChickenOkay, I never thought I could do a whole chicken.  That seemed like something the pros did, NOT ME!  But, I decided to give it a try and it turned out super super yummy!  It was easy too!  😀  Don’t worry, if I can do it ANYONE can do it!!!  I swear!!!  Now, here are the pics and recipe.  If you have any questions, feel free to ask!

Ingredients:

2 tbsp butter  (I used dairy free butter and it turned out fine!)
1 tsp dried sage
1 clove garlic (or 2 tbsp minced garlic)
1 whole chicken (roughly 3 lbs 5 oz)
1 tsp dried rosemary
1 onion, peeled
2 cups chicken broth

Directions:

1. Preheat the oven to 375.  In a small bowl, combine butter, sage, garlic and pepper.  Carefully loosen the skin from the chicken breast being careful not to tear it.
2.  Spread half the herb mixture under the skin and half on top of the skin.  Sprinkle with rosemary.  Place onion in chicken cavity and tie legs together with chicken string (if you don’t have any, no worries)

3.  Place chicken on a roasting pan and pour broth into pan.  Cover with foil and roast for 1 hour.
4.  Uncover chicken and roast until juices run clear when meat is pierced, about 40 more minutes.  Transfer to serving dish and let stand about 15 minutes before serving

**NOTE: I also tried it with various cuts of chicken (breast, leg, etc) and it turned out great.  Even yummier I think!  Just remember to cut the cook time if you use smaller cuts of meat and the skin is essential, so don’t try boneless!

***SIDE DISH SUGGESTIONS:  I served it with roasted potatoes, onion, bell pepper and carrots.  Fabulous!  What would you serve with it???

Is there anything you’d like to cook but are nervous about?
 I’d love to give it a shot for you!  If I can’t do it, I’d be glad to vent about how hard it is!  LOL
