Plastic Sucks No Matter What

January 15, 2015 by Daedra Surowiec

I remember when the whole BPA-free craze began and honestly it doesn’t seem to have slowed down very much since it first arrived.  BPA-free has become a HUGE marketing tactic all over the place.

I was reading this article in the Washington Post the other day and it reminded me why we can’t trust any plastics. The choice is clear when it comes to the products we use to feed ourselves (straws, water bottles, baby bottles) and store our food, and it’s NOT plastic.  I look forward to the day when consumer demand has eradicated the plastic container industry altogether.

Keep educating yourself and together we can make this change!
