Things to Think before using plastic

There is always a debate about whether to use plastic containers or glass. Plastic containers are more durable than glass as the latter has the tendency of breaking down easily and can even hurt us. On the other hand, plastics are harmful to the environment but if the correct type is used correctly then they can be recycled. Plastic containers are widely preferred by us. There are certain things to keep in mind while opting for plastic containers.

Firstly, every container comes with a number inside a triangle at the bottom. The numbers range within 1 to 7, which indicates what the plastic is manufactured. For storing food, containers with numbers 1, 2, 4 and 5 should be used. Numbers 3, 6 and 7 are not advisable.

Secondly, plastic containers should be stored in cool places. Although long-lasting, plastics also wear out with time from high temperature and overuse. Do not microwave the containers as they are designed for one-time-use only. Also, do not put them in the dishwasher.

Thirdly, make recycling the mantra of your life. Whenever you use plastic make sure that they are recyclable. Otherwise, it will affect the environment and cause greenhouse gas emission.

Plastic containers are reasonable for storing and transporting food, but make sure to limit the use of storage containers to cold food storage only.
