I’m not a fan of having to buy updatements when I know I can reuse something.
I care about those up-to-date reusable silicone plastic bags for food storage.
They have zippers on them and you can scrub them out after you are done using them. Instead of buying little plastic baggies from the grocery store and throwing them in the landfill, you can use these reusable silicone bags instead. I dislike putting things in the landfill, especially plastic. There are a lot of items that my friend and I use in our day-to-day lives that are single use and end up in the garbage after just one round. That’s something that used to frustrate me about Heating as well as Air Conditioning filters. They cost around $15 for quality allergen-rated filters, and then you have to throw them in the garbage after 4 to 6 weeks of use. While most of them have only a little bit of plastic in them, it’s still a wasteful endeavor. That’s why I switched to using washable light track filters for a while. I loved the idea of having an reusable Heating as well as Air Conditioning filter that I could scrub whenever I got dirty. However, the people who sold it to me did not tell me the ugly truth about these washable Heating as well as Air Conditioning filters. They’re nearly impossible to get completely dry after rinsing them, which leads to mold growth in the air conditioner. On top of that, they’re not easily good at filtering the air in the first locale… Periodically dust particles will go straight through the washable Heating as well as Air Conditioning filter medium and then that dust will get stuck on your evaporator coil. In these situations, you end up with an evaporator coil that has just coated in dust particles, leading to potential long term detriment.
