What do You know about Plastic?

This is a Public Service Announcement from Linzy:

Hey everyone --

In case you didn't hear, this was in the news today. There are plenty of companies selling BPA free bottles, sippy cups, etc. From my experience, they cost the same as the regular plastic baby bottles. Also, it says to stay away from microwaving in plastic containers and washing plastic containers in the dishwasher or with a stong dishwashing soap (heard this on NPR just now) as more of the BPA will leach into your food, drink, etc. Also, stay away from No. 7 plastics. This chemical in small amounts has been shown to cause serious problems in fetuses of rats as well as more than double an adult's risk of heart disease and diabetes.

As of today, I am switching back to glass... :)

Marshall Black (Colquett) made me get rid of my Nalgenes for my health. I feel like a lost puppy without them.
