[greenyes] Re: Gretchen Brewer's Comments
Amen and thanks to Gretchen for making those observations regarding the
potential health impacts from use of plastics for food and beverage
packaging. You only have to be out once on a sunny day on a road bike with a
plastic water bottle to realize how much leaching happens and how quickly
regardless of whether your water is in an HDPE or PET plastic bottle.
Economic and environmental life cycle analysis of plastic versus glass
containerization, and of keeping glass on the recycling truck or throwing it
off, needs to take the potentially serious health effects from plastics
leaching into account.
