Plastic containers are petroleum based, and some contain Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and Bisphenol A (BPA) which are now being questioned for their impact both on the environment and human health. Glass and stainless steel storage bowls are a great green storage option – and are great containers for taking lunch to work. I’m amazed how many people still microwave in a plastic container. Glass is microwavable and it’s a much better option than microwaving plastic. Take one of these along with you on your next dine out, and forego the Styrofoam doggie bag.
