Make choices in your purchasing, starting with rethinking single use plastic containers, wrappers. These have started to enter the produce isle at an alarming rate under the guise of protection and health. The opposite is true. Plastic, all plastic leaches chemicals over time, with change in temperature. Petroleum and wrapping companies are making money off of selling the idea that naked produce is dangerous or dirty. That hasn’t ever been the case and wrapping it in plastic does nothing to “sanitize” a food. However the plastic stays around for thousands of years. Those peppers you used in a recipe last week and have already forgotten about, the plastic wrap they came in will sit in a landfill or in the ocean for thousands of years before finally degrading.
