November 7, 2016: Go Glass!
I have to admit one of the biggest challenge to my green efforts is plastic food storage containers! They are just so convenient... and cheap... and disposable. Funny how the advantages are also the disadvantages! Today I used a different tactic to convince myself. Fear.
If you have ever left spaghetti in a plastic container, you know that after a couple of hours the plastic is tinged red where the sauce has leached into the plastic. Well, guess what? The reverse happens as well. When you store food in plastic, especially if it's heated, this plastic will leach into your food. So bring on the glass and stainless steel. Recyclable and no contamination. Win, win.
Give. Love. Go green.
