Wishing everyone a very happy new year and more greener choices for 2012…This post is long overdue…bad health dint let me post it earlier..I have something exciting to share…
My hubby bought us a pair of all steel and bamboo Klean Kanteen water bottles for our bdays :). I had Klean Kanteen on the list, but the cost made me look for other options.After a long and disappointing search for all steel and no plastic water bottle, we decided to buy Klean Kanteen bottles
But then the bag says 100% compsotable..I really hope it is!!
The consumer goods industry never stops to amaze me. This time around, it is the slow cooker plastic liner. While WHO and other health and wellness agencies keep advocating use of metal and ceramic utensils and cooking medium, Companies such as Rubbermaid, Reynolds find time to introduce more senseless products into the market. This time its the PLASTIC LINER for your slow cooker.
So are we getting ready to simmer and slow cook our food in plastic and let all the plasticiky goodness sinnk deeper into our system…I am stumped. It doesnt matter if the plastic container leaches BPA into your food or not. Bottom line is – Using plastic for cooking or heating is a big NO-NO. Lab tests which speak about not finding BPA in name brand plastic products today, will surely trace something else which will be proven harmful in a few years from now. Why risk our family and ourselves with these mindless products. I am open to come across any positive point about using them. (excepting water wastage or effort cos they are pointless arguments when compared to the case of non-bio-degradablilty of these products (remember garbage patches and landfills- we dont need more of them)
When I see food bloggers recommend such products I am sure they have not thought this through. These liners are supposed to be made of anti-heat nylon…hmm..more heat resistant plastic..yet to research on whats in it!…all yours thoughts are welcome
A major toilet paper brand gave away these plastic containers for free and brought out this ad. I reserve my comments about toilet paper, but couldnt bear seeing this ad.
JUST BECAUSE U CAN’T SEE IT DOESN’T MEAN IT ISN’T THERE..!!
I have had this peeve about wireless mouse and keyboard. All the battery it drains, made my green alarm go off on full blast! A few sniffs later, I came across Aramedia’s cordless mouse which does not need battries…read more here
An Eco-Friendly BatteryFREE Wireless Mouse For Laptop for $39.95. I am still worried about the plastic which went into making it, but it is a decent trade off compared to all the battery drain from using regular cordless mouse and keyboard
These are made of bamboo
