No! More! Plastic!

Mojave | Feb 27, 2013 08:26 PM

I think this is starting to become more commonplace - I want to keep my food away from plastic (and direct aluminum).

I started by replacing my food storage containers with vintage pyrex - non reactive glass, cute and "green" because it's reusing.

Now I'm starting to notice all the places our food comes into contact with plastic. There's a thread on here where someone is trying to find a coffee maker with no plastic. I'm looking for glass containers that can handle a gallon of milk, orange juice and also water. I like vintage so I have sway that direction.

I have some great ceramic pitchers from the early 20th century (I sell vintage house wares and kitchen ware as a small side business) but I know lead and cadmium could be concerns if the items are used frequently.

Anyone here trying to move away from plastic? What are you using?
