Wine in a plastic cup, a new Facebook page, and sending my broken charger back to Apple

So, a new piece of plastic has migrated into my plastic tally this month--a plastic wine cup.  Sadly, I do not have a picture, but nonetheless, it's part of the tally.  We were in an outside deck portion of a restaurant with my husband's family, and I saw they were serving drinks in plastic cups, but there were a few people with wine in real glasses, so I naively assumed that would be a safe choice.  Unfortunately not.  I asked for a real glass as soon as it was served (not too keen on enjoying wine in a plastic cup, waste aside), but the cup still went to the landfill.  I always find these things so hard to navigate, as I try to not always be the crazy plastic lady and annoy the poor waiters and waitresses, but often times when I don't say anything, I end up with unwanted plastic.

In other news, I will definitely be sending back my broken power cord to Apple, at the suggestion of Lindsay from Treading my Own Path.  If you have a broken power cord or charger from Apple, I encourage you to do the same.  We shouldn't have to accept (expensive!) products that break down so quickly, or the waste they produce.
My broken power cord, if you missed it :(
I will update you when it gets sent out.  Here is their address, if you are planning to send back your own broken charger:

Apple
1 Infinite Loop
Cupertino, CA 95014
408.996.1010

Just started a Facebook page for the blog, like us over there if you're on Facebook :)
