Thrift and Plastic

Many blog posts here on City Cost about sustainable life gave me food for thought. Each story made me think carefully about how I used resources and disposed of waste. 


So, this week, when my laundry rack broke, I got thinking. How can I reduce the amount of refuse I’ll throw out when I dispose of the rack?

So I stripped off all the clips and then looked around the house for uses.

I swapped out the broken and mismatched clips on my second rack,

 and then considered where I could use the remaining clips. 


The kitchen! I attached a few to the range hood.

I put the rest of them on the laundry room rack.

I’m looking at a lot of the plastic bits around the house with greater scrutiny.
