How and Why to Reduce Toxic Plastic In Your Kitchen!

You’ve done your best to keep toxins out of the cleaning products you use, out of your body, and far, far away from your skin. You’ve made every effort – or have you? One of the most toxic household substances is found in every kitchen, at the grocery store, and at the office.

What is it? Plastic.

New standards require “BPA-free” water bottles and other containers, but BPAs haven’t been banished from every kind of plastic, nor are they the only toxic substance in the mix.

Eliminating this material from your life might seem impossible, but it’s not. In fact, just a few changes, like shifting toward reusable containers made of natural materials, can help eliminate most of the plastic your food and skin come into contact with each day.

  2. Thanks Marla,
    I always benefit from your suggestions. I need to start bringing bags to the market with me.
    When I have leftovers, I put it in a cereal bowl and then cover with a small plate. It works great to seal out air too..I buy BPA free baggies – I guess that is still bad?

    1. Your quite welcome!
      I didn’t know there were BPA baggies. Sometime we do the best we can and if we keep working at making small changes one at a time we can make a giant difference in our carbon footprint. I love your idea of using cereal bowls and putting plates over them to seal the air out. That definitely multi-purposing and saving clutter and waste. Thanks as always for stopping by and commenting. Have a healthy, happy & blessed day.

Would love to know your thoughts!
