Why eco-friendly food storage containers?
A plastic food container is made from plastic that comes with many toxic chemicals and substances like BPA or bisphenol-A, phthalates and PVC or polyvinyl chloride. These chemicals are considered dangerous to our health, sometimes even carcinogenic. When food that is still warm inside a plastic food storage container, these chemicals are released into the food.
Plastic storage containers for food also have environmental implications. While itís cheaper to produce plastic, anything made from plastic is not biodegradable. And at the end of their lives, most plastic products are being thrown away. Sure there are recycling centres around the world but they can only recycle a small portion of the plastic wastes. This is one of the reasons why many plastics are being dumped in our landfills and littered in our oceans. It takes hundreds of years before they start to decompose.
Reusable food containers on the other hand will help you reduce your waste in the kitchen. With proper washing and handling, youíll have a peace of mind knowing that no harmful chemicals and substances can leach into your food. Reusable means that you can use the container for as long as indicated by the manufacturer. And at the end of their lifespan, most reusable food storage containers are highly recyclable especially those made from food grade stainless steel.
