Do You Know?
Studies of bisphenol-S, the chemical compound sometimes used to replace bisphenol-A in "BPA-free" plastic products, found it is disruptive not only to the body's hormone system but to brain circuitry in developing animal embryos.
Known to mimic estrogen, BPA and BPS are not the only synthetic chemicals found in hard plastic and certain resins that do so. (Close relatives include Bisphenol B, C, E, F, G, M. P, PH, TMC, and Z.) In laboratory tests, 95 percent of hundreds of ordinary plastic products put through "real world" conditions, such as through a microwave or dishwasher, tested positive for leaching estrogenic chemicals. Since companies are under no obligation to tell consumers what chemicals are used in the manufacture of their product, many health experts say the best thing to do is avoid contact with household plastics altogether.
With the caveat that it is nearly impossible to not be exposed to plastic in the course of a day, here are two lists. The first contains a selective list of plastic items or products that contain plastic resins that experts say you should limit your exposure to or sanitize your hands after touching. The second list contains a selective list of safe alternatives
- hard plastic sports bottles
- plastic food storage containers
- food wrap
- hard and flexible packaging
- deli containers
- plastic bags
- baby bottle components (nipple, ring, liner, etc)
- plastic dinnerware and plates
- non-stick cookware
- plastic cleaning products
- thermal receipt paper
- canned food and drink
- stainless steel water bottles
- unbleached wax paper
- anything made from wool, cotton, hemp or plastic-free, biodegradable fibers
- plastic-free cleaning products, such as baking soda, vinegar, and essential oils
- stainless steel or cast iron cookware
I have 3 Meals in Steel lunch boxes and love the other 2, but the plastic seal on this box comes off when opened, so I have to either keep putting it back on or not use it at all - which means the lid is loose. The other 2 boxes don't have a plastic seal and work great.
My son loves his new bento box (has covered the lid in stickers :) ) Lot's of wholefood choices to fill up the compartments. I try to make his lunch the night before, stick it in the fridge overnight then into his insulated carrycase in the morning, keeps cool until lunch time! As a naturopath I'm loving the steel lunchbox as there are no nasty plastic leaching into his food.
This has changed my lunch life. Doesn’t. Leak. Amazing. Also a great size to get a good lunch in. 5% short of a hundy because silicone seal in lid falls out sometimes.
