If you start the repair, there are plastic is everywhere from your home, and sometimes where you least imagine. Can have plastic in their towels, sheets, underwear, clothes in General, accessories, bathroom curtain. Phew! Unfortunately, the plastic is omnipresent in our lives today. Even with “people” plastic people have to live with at times. But in most homes, it’s in the kitchen where there are more plastic, and it is precisely in this environment of the House in which the plastic is more harmful to your health. Solution? Let’s eliminate the plastic in the kitchen (ideally, take him out of my life, but …).
Although many of the negative effects of plastic to health have not been documented by science, we know that the plastic contains chemicals that can contaminate food and interfere with the body’s hormone levels, as well as other adverse effects that may cause health effects such as cardiovascular problems, obesity, cancer and infertility. FEAR!
The perils of plastic
Have you ever heard of Bisphenol A? Bisphenol is a chemical additive widely used in the plastic which are made water bottles, baby bottles, and many other containers and food packaging (see us! Why I talk so much that food packaging is bark!). The use of Bisphenol A is being investigated for playing a disrutor, being associated with a series of reproductive disorders, heart problems, asthma, breast cancer, and even memory problems.
But the Bisphenol is not the only chemical component of plastics. So even though you plastic containers “biphenol-free, or free BPA”, you’re not safe. Therefore, it is best to abolish the plastic at least of your kitchen and your food!
How to decrease the presence of plastic in your life
1. Fast Food, Junk Food
As if the food itself wasn’t practically plastic, have you noticed the amount of trash and plastic that a Mc snack (just not happy!) generates? Next time: plastic cup, straw, bag that comes with toast, toast, more mustard, plastic ketchup and mayonnaise … more Burger box, more this and that! Ahhhhhh … Just imagine a huge Monster made of plastic and bread guy running after me! IE: fast food, I’m out!
2. Use glass containers in the kitchen
The time has come to retire the famous tuppeware and plastic bet in glass containers for storing food in the fridge! The containers and plastic utensils often contain polystyrene and can contaminate food with styrene, element that can cause cancer. Avoid, including plates and spoons, plastic, for the crionças! Use porcelain plates and good old stainless steel or silver spoon (that was your mother and that was your grandmother’s, you know?!
3. Take a mug to work
No using thousand plastic cups per day for coffee, tea and water at work. Work on creativity and take your mug or glass to glass water for work, and even a cup less coffee and tea! In addition to being more ecologically correct, does not risk to your health and is still charming.
4. packing is shell
Unfortunately there’s not much we can do about food packaging purchased from the supermarket, such as rice, beans, etc. But if you start attending more trade fairs, can buy grains, cereals, seeds, nuts … everything in bulk and bring your paper bags (that rhymes!). Economics and health, all with the same brush. And, of course, give preference for organic foods and integrals.
5. Use Kit
Everyone already knows about the environmental damage that plastic bags cause to the environment. How about adopting the Kit?! Nowadays there are a variety of them, of every style and material (less plastic, right?!). Environmentally friendly and also super style!
6. Water bottle
Nothing like good old water filter of clay! Did you know that is one of the most efficient to treat drinking water? That’s that! Then get a bottle quite cute stainless steel and take everywhere with you. Attention, because the aluminum bottles can also contain Bisphenol.
