On the 11th day of Christmas
Each day I’ll be telling you about a special Plastic Free Gift Set available via www.plasticfree.baby and a little statistic about why it’s so important to go plastic free this Christmas.
Why go plastic free?
While you’re probably already aware that alcohol, caffeine and many medications make their way into your breast milk, you might be surprised to discover some of the other substances that could be in there as well. Such as - Bisphenol A (BPA) in plastic, canned goods and receipts. And Phthalates. These chemicals soften hard plastics, help lotions absorb into the skin and make fragrances last longer. They’re found in a wide range of household products, including food containers, toys, air fresheners and cosmetics. In animal studies, phthalates have been found to affect fertility and birth outcomes such as gestational age and birth weight, and to create abnormalities in male genitalia.
