What’s good for our bodies is good for the planet – and what’s bad for the planet is bad for our bodies. This week we’re exploring the idea that caring for the earth must include caring for our own health.
Tip #3: Cut Out the Plastic
Many of us already know how devastating plastic can be for the planet but most aren’t aware enough that the synthetics can harm human health too. From heating food in plastic containers to reusing plastic bottles (and perhaps even using them the first time ) to scientificconcerns about BPA, there’s an ocean’s worth of reasons to steer clear. Instead of throwaway plastic, choose reusable glass or metal. If you do find yourself having to use plastic, at least be sure to recycle it.
