This week I posted an article about the dangers of BPA. You can view this story here. As a result of this article, I have had a number of people ask me for personal recommendations when replacing their BPA plastics currently taking up space in their kitchen. Instead of answering this question individually, I thought I would do it in a public forum, for all to see. These are just a few of the products I use and recommend to clients. Hope this helps!
For water, I recommend everyone switch to a stainless steel water bottle. I personally like the range stocked at Biome. They come in a number of different colours and sizes and last forever.
Smoothies & Fresh Juice
For smoothies and juices, ditch the plastic cups and containers and opt for glass Mason jars available here.
For people on the go, EcoJarz (pictured) have just released a line of glass smoothie jars with re-usable stainless steel straws, these are available here and are really cute!
For lunch boxes, we use a brand called Lunch-bots, but for those of you with children Planetbox has some great options for school. All are available from Biome in a range of shapes and sizes. Keep in mind these are stainless steel so will last a lot longer than any plastic lunch box. They also prevent the need for plastic cling-wrap – another plus!
Storage Containers & Baking Dishes
For storage containers and baking dishes, Pyrex do a great range. There are a number of suppliers online who sell Pyrex containers that are delivered to your door. Just do a quick Google search.
For all those pantry plastics, we replaced our entire stash with some glass jars we picked up at Coles for under $5 each or again, Mason Jars (pictured) will also do the trick.
Don’t forget to swap your plastic cups for glass also!
For anything I missed…
For all Australian residents, Biome is a great place to find any of the above products (or various alternatives) listed above, all BPA and BPS free. You can jump onto Biome’s website here.
For all residents outside of Australia, the easiest thing to do would be to simply google the respective brand names I have mentioned above.
