    Is there a website listing companies that no longer use BPA in their cans?

    Emily,

    Great article! I, too, am very aware of the problems associated with plastic. After plastic’s discovery, its usage in products rapidly ascended up the manufacturing food chain. It was cheap, durable, moldable, etc. But in truth, we extracted petroleum reserves that were probably meant to stay stored deep underground, manipulated the chemical compounds and made new compounds, and released into the world products that leek chemicals both foreign to and harmful to our bodies and our environments. It’s important to speak about this issue. We cannot reverse all that’s been done, but we can immediately begin to slow down our use of and purchase of fossilized products. Keep it up!
