Food for Thought
Reading some of Kitchen Stewardship’s Monday Missions have been good for me…and hard. Scanning through the list, I found one entitled #13: Plastics, Part two: Rethink Plastic Food Storage. I use a lot of plastic food storage. In fact, I have been washing and re-using plasitc containers for storing dinner leftovers. Of course, I also often use my favorite Pyrex glass containers too!! here is a quote from an entry on plastic safety that gives you good basic information:
“What do microwaves do to plastics?
- Evil: #3, 6 and some 7 (#7 means “other” so there’s a wide range, but better safe than sorry)
- Better…maybe: #2 HDPE, #4 LDPE, #5PP (This has been the standard “safe list” for a few years. Recent research is raising questions even here.)
- Basic plastic water bottles are generally #1. They are for one-time use only. The safety is questionable.”
