Every single plastic object in my house, I now eye with suspicion and look for the secret skull and crossbone symbol tattooed onto it somewhere. Chances are, if I’m holding a plastic object in my hand, I’m running to my old friend Google, to see if it’s going to give me a raging case of the tumors.
So, what do you do when your toddler is now a full fledged child and you’re packing his or her lunch? I bet you’re wondering if those ziploc bags are safe from those little leachy bisphenol chemicals. Me too.
I found a great site with some alternatives, as well as a link to a great cheat sheat with recycling codes, for just about every kind of plastic you can think of. The link to this cheat sheet will be available in the sidebar. The sheet itself is a little dated, but it’s still helpful and the “plastics to avoid” is still accurate. However, if you’re really concerned, you should call the company in question and ask.
