oh, plastics.....

the alchymista

plastic is quite a material - so many forms, so many uses. though we try to keep plastics to a minimum in our home, i look around our house and see them all over.  and after being especially careful about buying only BPA-free plastics when i DO buy plastics, i saw this on NPR a couple of weeks ago: http://www.npr.org/2011/03/02/134196209/study-most-plastics-leach-hormone-like-chemicals

i especially try to shy away from plastics where koruna's food and water is concerned, but as anyone with a small child knows, plastic-free options aren't exactly jumping off the shelves at many of the baby stores.

there are some good bamboo baby products out there. and you can get bottles from evenflow and bornfree and sippycups from kleen kanteen, but i assume the nipples are still just bpa-free plastic.

i did find this site that offers some alternatives: http://lifewithoutplastic.com/boutique/child-and-baby-products-c-65.html

before i rush out and buy the next thing they tell me is okay, i'll use the best of what we've got.

(note the plastic covered chair and plastic formica table.  grrrr....but i love 'em.)

koruna moved straight from nursing to drinking from cups.  that has come in handy because now, at one and a half years, we can trust her to use our juice glasses.

you can find the leather bib here

(note the plastic letters ALL AROUND IT - argh!)

plastics seem like they're here to stay.  i'm so attached to some of the plastic things in my house that i wouldn't dream of letting them go.  but from now on, i am going to be even more aware of every plastic purchase.
