Start with your trashcans, your computer, your printer, the keyboard buttons, the phone, the clothes you are wearing, your pens, the fan, the remote control... How about your under-the-sink plumbing? In your kitchen, I bet there is a bunch of plastic stored away-Tupperware, dishes, cleaning products, parts of your appliances, condiments... In your bathroom: shampoo and conditioner bottles are probably made of plastic.

10 Weird Handbags for the Manly Man

"I went to see the Chinese movie, Curse of the Golden Flower, but 20 minutes after I left the theatre, I forgot what it was about."
