The Plastic Cow Goes MOOOOOOG February 14, 2012

Posted by nrhatch in Food & Drink, Health & Wellness, Music & Dance.

Our lives are inundated with plastic.

We drink out of plastic, wrap our food in plastic, carry  produce home in plastic, and brush our teeth with plastic bristled toothbrushes.

The evidence is growing that our reliance on plastic is detrimental to our health and well-being . . . and to the health and well-being of the planet.

A few key tips:

1.  Store your food in glass containers.
2.  Buy cooking oil in glass bottles.
3.  Never microwave food in plastic.
4.  Don’t drink hot drinks out of foam cups or eat food from foam containers.
5.  Rinse your canned food before you eat it.
6.  Use glass baby bottles and stainless steel or ceramic drinking bottles.
7.  If you smell plastics in any water or liquid, do not drink it.

But, remember, not all plastic is harmful . . .
