Stop Reusing Single-Use Plastics
Remember when you thought you were "going green" by refilling your water bottle over and over again instead of tossing it after one use? Your heart was certainly in the right place, but disposable plastic is disposable for a reason.
"Packaging ingredients are categorized as 'indirect additives' because they indirectly leach into your food. Because of this, they technically become an ingredient in your food, but brands don't have to tell you about them," Leah warned.
She went on to say, "Disposable plastic containers (like water bottles and takeout packaging) break down very quickly and can start to leach dangerous additives into your food or water." Instead of the 12-pack of disposable water bottles, pick up a reusable one (it's OK if you only get it because it's super cute, too).
