The Perils of Plastic

I read a crazy article on plastic in Time Magazine this morning. The CDC founded traces of 212 environmental chemicals in Americans –including toxic metals like arsenic and cadmium, pesticides, flame retardants and more. Chemicals like bisphenol (BPA) and phthalates –key ingredients in many plastics — may disrupt the delicate endocrine system, leading to developmental problems.

They also included a supplement on the top 10 household toxins. Knowledge is power folks! Look for products that are phthalate-free with BPA free packaging –things that are safe for you, your home and the planet. It’s way harder than it should be 😦
