Are you sick and tired of worrying about finding truly safer food storage containers? It's tough to tell what's what, even when they're labeled as “BPA-free plastic” these days…

We've spent the last 8 years researching and updating our list of storage systems that are made with materials that have long-standing safety records, like glass, stainless steel, silicone, polypropylene and polyethylene.  We've been careful to confirm that no BPA-based colorants are used in any of the plastic components too.

So what's the big deal with chemicals in plastic? There's a nasty set of endocrine disrupting compounds (EDCs) that are comprised of synthetic chemicals that mimic or block hormones and disrupt the body’s normal functions. This disruption can alter normal hormone levels, stopping or stimulating the production of hormones, or changing the way hormones travel through the body, thus affecting the functions that these hormones control.

It's frustrating on one hand to know that there are no regulations governing these gender-bending chemicals in our products that come in contact with our food. But it's also amazing at this point in time to sit back and look over the sheer number of safer food storage options!

P.S. Take a minute to learn more about decoding the mystery of safer vs toxic plastic in our extensive guide (INFOGRAPHIC)
