Spring Fling Day 28: Plastic Containers

Pull out all of those Tupperware containers and old butter tubs. If they don’t have lids (or are missing the bottoms), they definitely should be flung. Decide how many you actually need and will reasonably use, keep the nicest ones and recycle the rest.


Now go flinging!  Please come back and tell me how many plastic containers you were able to fling today.
