Plastic does not break down...even after 100 years. Prevent this from happening by switching to stainless steel.

Kids in schools are learning about the importance of taking care of the environment.  Then they are coming home and teaching us dinosaurs about the importance of changing our eating and drinking habits to prevent us from consuming more than necessary making a negative impact on the environment.  Within that same context, I am learning about the disadvantages to using plastic versus stainless steel.

Plastic contains a harmful substance called BPA.  BPA can cause havoc on one’s own body leading to health complications.  In some instances, BPA has been linked to causing developmental issues in young children, causing prenatal problems for pregnant woman and cancer in others…and that is just the beginning.  Additionally, plastic does not disintegrate.  So what does this mean for consumers?  It means whenever you use plastic it sits in our landfills, pollutes our waters and puts wildlife (and ourselves) in harm’s way.

Make the Switch to Stainless Steel

To prevent any health risks from forming and to protect the environment make the switch to cutting down on using plastic.  It is an easy change to make that has a big impact on the environment and our lives.  It is simple.  Start by bringing to work steel utensils rather than plastic.  Store leftovers at home in glass containers rather than plastic.  Carry around a steel water bottle to the gym rather than plastic.  All of these small changes help prevent further damage to fall upon the earth trickling down to us.
