If this doesn’t convince you to rid your home of BPA-laden products, I fear nothing will. China has not been known for being the most environmentally of friendly countries, but now China has decided they want to pursue a ban of the substance along with the European Union.
Unfortunately, just because a product says it is BPA-free doesn’t mean it is safe. The other unfortunate in the situation is that I was unable to find out what plastics did not leach estrogen hormones.
In our house we got rid of almost all plastic. I use glass containers for storage and reheating in the microwave. We use glass and ceramic for food and drink. I do still have some nylon and silicon utensils.
I recommend ridding your kitchen, as well as your home, of as much plastic stuff as possible. I have really come to embrace real materials that will last for generations, instead of disposable items that are in the landfull before the end of a season.
