Tip For Keeping Plastics Out of Your Home

Casa Quickie: Skip the Plastic

LilSugar recently shared five great tips for reducing toxins in your home — at little or no cost, courtesy of the Healthy Home 2010 project. My favorite tip? Reduce plastics in your home. Recommendations include replacing plastics with natural alternatives such as textiles, solid wood, bamboo, glass, or stainless steel.

Additionally, when you do buy something at the store, look for items that use little to no plastic packaging, or choose products you can recycle or repurpose for storage after the product is used (LilSugar suggests using a yogurt container for crayon storage). To learn more about plastics, check out this slide from LilSugar's post.
