I can not ignore the information any longer. But oh how I love plastic. I'm so sad. The little plastic bowls with attached straws are perfect. Perfect for eating cereal in the morning and drinking the excess milk through the straw. The little plastic soup cups were perfect for keeping soups warm and contained in lunch boxes. Plastic water bottles are oh so convenient. And the little plastic meal containers are perfect for our meals on the go.
I have a LOT of plastic. This is only a small sample of what I removed from ONE cupboard. I have many more cupboards filled with more of the same. I have to take baby steps. One cupboard at a time.
I'm so sad.
Good-bye my beloved plastics. Parting....is such sweet sorrow....
Editing to add: Here are a few links that I found helpful and informational since you asked....
Eat Pray Love wrote a post on this a while back that started my search for info.
And now I've just found this article on Yahoo news
