The party may be over for Tuppwerare. Those ubiquitous plastic containers are taking the heat for their possible risks to human health and the environment. A new study has shown a link between a chemical in plasticware (BPA or bisphenol-A) and breast cancer. (Read more here.)
One company, Kinetic, is ahead of the curve with their line of environmentally-friendly, BPA-free glass storage containers, Go Green Glasslock. They were named a top contender in Good Housekeeping’s rigorous test of 28 different food storage products. Editors at Real Simple named them the “Best Container for Leftovers” and Cooks Illustrated highly recommended Kinetic Glasslock in a review. “A neat, tight, reliable seal, good capacity, and solid performance in every test made this container a standout,” they wrote. “If you are concerned about microwaving food in plastic storage containers, this is the one to choose.”
In addition to the health benefits, the environmental arguments for using glass food storage over plastic are compelling. Glasslock products are made from a natural organic compound that is 100% recyclable. Plastic is made from artificial substances and can take up to a millennium to break down in a landfill. So, don’t rush to trash all your plastic containers just yet, but when thinking about your health and the environment, glass may just be the plastic of the future.
