1000 Flowers for the Planet - #547 Use a Metal Nail File
An easy Flower suggestion for today. Emery boards are all well and good, but these days they come in plastic packaging that the recyclers in my area won’t take (how about yours), but it’s not really about that, is it? We can work better for the planet when we move away from buying stuff because we know the packaging can be recycled, and buy stuff that doesn’t have packaging at all or doesn’t need replacing. A metal nail file is such a small item but it will last a lifetime, saving time, money and resources – think about how many trees must be used to make disposable emery boards! So make sure you buy a nail file that doesn’t have plastic packaging or a plastic handle – that would defeat the purpose.
