The Plastic-Free Diet
One small change can make a significant impact on your health and wellness.
What if we told you that you could be ingesting up to 1 credit card’s worth of plastic per week?
A recent study shares that up to 5 grams of plastic can transfer into your body from various pathways, including common food and beverage products packaged in plastic. These microplastics are generated when plastic packaging is opened or used normally. Over time, those tiny particles are slowly contaminating the air we breathe, the food we eat, and the beverages we drink – all while negatively impacting our environment. Plus, some types of plastics carry chemicals and additives with potential long-term effects on our physical health! How many stats do we need to hear before we start creating a positive change for our health and wellbeing?
|Made from all-natural Ingredients||Made from synthetic polymers|
|Doesn’t interfere with food and beverages||Can transfer chemicals to food and beverages|
|Odorless and flavorless||Can leach residues, dyes and pigments|
|Pure and Impermeable||May negatively affect fertility|
|FDA-approved “Generally Recognized as Safe”||May increase mutations and cancers|
|Infinitely recyclable||Increase in plastic pollution|
