07.Some products to avoid
Trawling the supermarkets, CHOICE found far too many foods packed in risky plastics, even some health foods and organic vegetables – here are just a couple.
Fresh meat, fruit and vegetables wrapped in cling wrap
The cling film you buy to use at home is made from low-density polyethylene, but we found meat and fresh vegetables from supermarkets wrapped in PVC film; phthalates can leach into the food.
Reusable polycarbonate bottles
The more you wash them, the more BPA they release into your drink.
