Why to use Beeswax Wraps and Beeswax Bags from Lovebee.ie
We all know plastic is not good for our health, let’s start with BPA. BPA stands for bisphenol A. BPA is an industrial chemical that has been used to make certain plastics and resins since the 1960s. BPA is found in polycarbonate plastics and epoxy resins. Polycarbonate plastics are often used in containers that store food, clingfilm and beverages, such as water bottles. Next, petrochemicals which leach toxins into our food. It is certainly not good for our environment, where it takes 1000 years or more to break down. As of 2019, our planet is literally choking in plastic – plastic has been found at all levels of our food chain – we need a change!
