5 Places Plastic Is Hiding In Your Home


Plastic is not the best substance in the world. As Beth Terry, author of the book, My Plastic Free Life, told me, “there are a multitude of reasons” to reduce our plastic use. First there is the waste and litter issue. Most folks know that plastic is not biodegradable, Terry said. However, many people think recycling plastic solves the problem. What they may not realize is that “plastic recycling is really down-cycling because plastics are recycled into secondary products that are not further recycled,” according to Terry.

Plastics are accumulating in our oceans, and that affects us humans. “Plastic is getting into the lowest levels of food chains in the ocean and getting eaten by fish and making its way up the food chain to us, and are finding pieces of plastic inside fish,” Terry explained. “Why that's a problem is because plastics contain additives, many of which are toxic and endocrine disruptors."

Plastic is all around us. It encases the laptop I am typing this article on. It is in most if not all of the other electronics I use. It is in single use bottled water, which I choose not to use. Those are the things we can readily point to and say, “That’s plastic.” But there are hidden sources of plastic in our homes.
