Recycled materials

I have no issue participating in a recycling program by using recycled materials. I wonder about the safety though. Are you confident that the recycled materials you use are safe enough?

With the invention of plastic containers then the microwave..people have been warned against heating or cooking food in the plastic..but not many knew why. Because the plastic is made from by-products of oil ( which also becomes gas) the food absorbs the chemicals.ALL recycled material is a by-product of something,so the more knowledge we have of the recycled items the safer we will feel..However you know that won't happen because questioning is "too much trouble" and bottom line,, profit is the bottom line!! So no matter what we will never get a straight answer to that question..weedbychoice

Recycling really help! Billion tons of recyclable objects are dumped in landfills every year. These objects can stay there for decades or even centuries polluting the air, soil, and water. If everyone participates in recycling, the volume of waste diverted to landfills would be greatly reduced.
