So. Often, more than not, I try to buy local and sustainable. It makes sense to me in terms of economy and ethics – among other things. There is though my one weakness. Dollar Tree. I know – junk from China. I can’t help it, and I’m not going to apologize for it. This – I’ll admit is a new thing – and I only indulge on rare occasion, but- I have a lot of fun when I do.
Today we went in search of just one thing – party supplies. Again, I aim to use things that recyle and compost – but uh, when it comes to cleaning up after a three year old’s birthday – I surrender to the wax coated pretty paper plates that must get tossed. What was that? You heard the Earth cry a little. . . it’s okay – I’ll probably feel guilty about it till Kai’s next birthday.
I filled two bags with with streamers, goody bags, decorations, paper goods, and loot for the kids treasure hunt for under twenty bucks. Oh yes. Love me some disposable goods. Whatever – they’re cute disposable goods.
