Danger of Plastic Food/ Drink Containers & Utensil









Danger of Plastic Food/ Drink Containers & Utensils


Did you ever drink from a plastic bottle and see a triangle symbol on the bottom with a number inside?

Do you know what the numbers stands for? 
Did you think that those are only for recycling?    
Then you are WRONG  !!!!!!


THE NUMBER TELLS YOU THE CHEMICAL MAKE UP OF THE PLASTIC.....


1)    Polyethylene terephalate (PET) 
2)    High density polyethylene (HDPE) 
3)    Unplasticised polyvinyl chloride (UPVC) or Plasticised polyvinyl chloride (PPVC) 
4)    Low density polyethylene LDPE 
5)    Polypropylene (PP) 
6)    Polystyrene (PS) or Expandable polystyrene (EPS) 
7)    Other, including nylon and acrylic


What you aren't told is that many of the plastics used are toxic and the chemicals used to create the sheet of plastic can leach into the food / drink. 
Think about it, how many times have you or a friend said 'I don't like this, it taste like the plastic bottle ..... '


THAT'S BECAUSE YOU ARE TASTING THE PLASTIC


The WORST ONES are Nos: 3, 6, and 7 !!!
DO NOT USE THESE NUMBERS if stated at the bottom of the bottle  !!!


Check out this chart that breaks down the plastic, its uses and chemical makeup 
(I find #7 a little scary)
