I’m just your ordinary Universalist-theology-church-administration-Ubuntu-Linux-District-of-Columbia kind of blogger. Why am I blogging on plastic use reduction? Beth Terry, that’s why, or rather, who.
I’ve never met her, but she writes the Fake Plastic Fish blog, and it doesn’t fail to challenge and inspire. So first I commented there, and wrote a couple of associated blog posts on my main blog. Then she challenged people to begin blogging and — after some thought — decided to join. (Here’s some people who she found or found her that blog on the subject.)
Just last night, via Twitter, she lamented the lack of men blogging on the subject. (That post, and my “I’m here” reply were lost in some data dump.) I’m here because of her and you, dear reader.
Now, Beth takes a rather strong and self-disciplined view to plastic-use reduction; more, indeed than I plan to commit myself. (I hope to explain and defend my choices as the blog develops.) Positively, I hope my contribution will be tips for the workplace — I’ve been thinking about this in real life — and resources particular to the Washington, D.C. area.
