Most kitchens are full of plastic products - plastic baggies, plastic wrap, reusable containers, and plastic shopping bags. Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) plastics hurt the environment during their manufacturing, they can leach dangerous chemicals into food as the plastic degrades through heating or over time,and end up filling the landfills for years to come.
Making safer choices:
1. When microwaving foods, choose glass or ceramic containers instead of plastic.
2. Replace plastic wrap with wax paper for covering foods while microwaving.
3. Pack lunches using reusable sandwich wraps like Wrap-N-Mats or using the Laptop Lunch system.
4. Pack snacks in unbleached wax paper bags or reusable fabric bags.
