- Plastic Problems
- It’s a mission
Are you harming yourself and your family with plastic? Plastic is highly unregulated. In reality, only 9% of plastic is recycled. That’s because it’s cheaper to produce new plastic than to recycle it. Consequently, the non-recycled plastic ends up in a landfill anyway. When you eat from and/or off of plastic, chemicals seep into the food and we’re consuming them. A couple things that make the plastic more dangerous is a scratched surface and heat. For example, heating food in the microwave on a plastic plate. On the other hand, you should still proceed with caution when it comes to BPA free. Some of its substitutes are just as bad if not worse.
It’s a mission
“We’re always learning”
The U.S. is lagging in the food safety department. The World Health Organization, the American Academy of Pediatrics, and the Endocrine Society are finally all raising the red flag on plastics in the kitchen. The chemicals plastic releases are called “Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals”. They’re manmade and they interfere with our hormones. Hormones play a big role in children’s growth and development which makes these chemicals very dangerous for kids. We should avoid serving on plastic, do not microwave plastic, and stay away from anything that has a recycle code number 3, 6, and 7.
The things we do on a daily basis impact our health. Let’s start with one small change at a time. Ahimsa is here to help with their line of stainless steel dinnerware. From plates, utensils and serving trays to cups and storage containers for lunches. You can be sure your kids aren’t eating any of the chemicals the plastic puts out.
