The best alternative to plastic

 

Good to hear from you, lots of comments about changes that people are going through, and starting in a new way, that’s uplifting.

The road to change is fraught with obstacles, but the feeling that we are working towards a common goal outweighs any difficulties.

According to the responses we receive from our subscribers, we notice that the big challenge is finding disposable, reliable, and healthy plastic substitutes.

 

Let’s take a look at the options available in the market:

Least Recommended:

1.Polyurethane and Polycarbonate

*Secretes toxins after multiple uses

*Do not use with hot drinks/foods.

*Do not use when there are scratches.

*Deprecated in Canada.

 

“BPA (bisphenol-a) is found in polycarbonate plastics, which are hard, clear (or clear-tinted), unbreakable plastics. 

BPA exposure possibly can affect the brain, the prostate gland of fetuses, infants, and children, and it might increase blood pressure, according to the Mayo Clinic. The same article does state, however, that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) testing shows BPA to be safe at the low levels sometimes found in foods.”

“While you’re going through your plastic containers, go ahead and toss any that are scratched or damaged. Worn containers pose a higher leaching risk.”

 2.Aluminum:

*Separates aluminum into the body.

*Causes neurological diseases.

“..Aluminum is also present in many other kitchen products like foil, canned goods, water bottles, drink pouches, and tin storage dishes. Research shows that it transfers into food, especially when foods are heated in foil or containers or come into contact with it while hot. Some sources claim that foil is safe for storing cold foods, but I still prefer to avoid it.”

 3. Disposable tools made of consumables:

Tools made from corn, mandioca, rice…they require composting.

This is the least harmful solution from the previous ones.

 

“..When used by manufacturers, “biodegradable” usually means that in a natural environment (that is, outside a composting facility with high heat and perfectly balanced conditions) a product will break down into smaller and smaller pieces until it can be consumed by microorganisms like bacteria, fungi, and algae. Products labeled as “biodegradable” but not “compostable” do not necessarily meet composting standards and should not be disposed of in a composting system.”

 “..it requires both high heat and moisture to go through a process known as hydrolyzing. This process is often only possible in industrial composting systems…”

1. Bamboo

Bamboo products are ecofriendly as long as they haven’t been chemically processed, which most bamboo clothing fabrics have been. Bamboo as a plant is naturally pest-resistant, 100% biodegradable, antifungal, antibacterial, and regrows to its adult size in 3 to 5 years.

 2. Stainless steel 304 ~

In addition, in judging the material of the stainless steel vacuum flask, there is also a misunderstanding, that is, the “stainless” of the stainless steel vacuum flask, which does not absolutely rust, but does not rust under certain conditions. If the consumer improperly uses it (such as tea, coffee, milk, and other acidic substances), it will naturally rust if it is used in an environment or condition that exceeds its corrosion resistance.

 3. Silicone:

Food grade silicone is a non-toxic type of silicone that doesn’t contain any chemical fillers or byproducts, making it safe for use with food. Silicon, the naturally occurring chemical element that makes up silicone, is a metalloid, which means it has properties of both metals and non-metals and is the second most abundant element in the earth’s crust, after oxygen

It is very important to research a little about the materials around us and find out what harms the environment and what harms us, and only then choose.

TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF AND THE UNIVERS AND BECOME HEAVEN ON EARTH.
