Getting Rid of Plastic in the Kitchen
I've been threatening to eliminate the plastic storage containers for years. It isn't only the BPA scare. Glass is easier to see through and clean. It doesn't hold odors. My daughter, Jillian, got us off to a good start when she brought home a set of 3 glass containers that she found at TJ Max. They look so nice in the refrigerator, and we can easily see the contents without opening the lid. They are much more versatile than plastic. You can store, freeze,microwave and bake with them. Amazon.com has reasonably priced containers, so we ordered more. For every glass container we add, we eliminate a plastic one.
