What are the alternatives and what can be recycled?
Plastics are not only breaking down into microplastics, causing environmental damage for generations, but right now, in contact with your food, they may be leaching chemicals, causing health problems. Look for the numbers 1-7 in a recycling triangle at the bottom of a plastic container to identify what plastics can be recycled.
Particularly avoid numbers 3, 6 and 7.
Worldwide about 70% of plastics end up in the sea, microplastics end up in food.
