I was trying to think if I could accomplish this. I still would have to use some plastics (specifically for dog poo and litterbox cleanouts) because I am definitely not willing to be that neighbor that throws animal poo directly into the garbage can in the middle of summer (lol). But the two biggest things that would hold me back are: milk and tofu. Milk not because I drink a lot of it (I drink hardly any), but because I use it for yogurt and half and half (or cream) for coffee. I think there is a brand here that is in glass bottles, but they still would have a plastic cap (required by law I believe), and anyway, they might be ultra-pasteurized, which won’t work for my purposes.
WELL. I started doing some research, and it seems some higher quality brands of dry (dehydrated) goat milk, once reconstituted, have the same properties as raw goat milk. IE YOU CAN MAKE YOGURT AND CHEESE WITH IT. So. I am going to do a little research and see if I can find any locally.
As for coffee, we all know I have a coffee addiction. However, I might be able to substitute a good pu-er in the mornings. I do put cream or milk in it, but it is less important than it is for coffee, for me, and see the above about dry goat milk.
As for tofu, I do not live in an area with a high enough Asian population to be able to get it fresh, so that is not an option. Maybe I could go without it for a month. I don’t eat it all the time, and I sometimes go weeks or months without any.
I assume using items already purchased and packages in plastic is allowed though? (Ie condiment bottles (even olive oil, although there is a bulk place now I think that has it), miso, tubs of gochugang, stuff like that.)
