If you’re avoiding BPA because of its endocrine-disrupting properties, there’s a new plastic label that may be even better: EA free.
Plastic might seem like more of a general environmental issue than a food-specific issue, but because of the large amounts of plastics involved in food, from packaging to cooking and storage, our food and drink choices directly relate to our plastic consumption.
When you use plastics in your kitchen there is potential for these chemicals to leach into your food – the same food you have taken considerable care to ensure is the healthiest option for your family. Our recommendation is to keep plastics out of the kitchen, and the great news is there are many safe non-plastic alternatives and ways to easily avoid plastic in the kitchen.

Ah, the weekend. The plastic-filled weekend.
Plastic-Free February continues with just one small slip-up – or maybe a whole bunch. I need an organic chemist on call to figure out what exactly is plastic and what is not.
