Hey Pete....

I will happily lay odds that it is not, but never forgetting, that the raw material is still 
non-renewable, and of course, the life cycle toxics issues are all still there - could one 
not make a case for these kinds of tests be done prior to release of new packaging? 
The ongoing coming to light of new chemicals being leached into content is 
worrying... like acetaldehyde in PET.....

Kind regards
