Plastics Alternatives

Hosted by


Using heat and soap on plastics can cause dangerous chemicals to leach into food. The effects seem most severe in small children. Concerned parent Jenny Rask went on a mission to replace all the plastics in her kids' lives and has some plastics alternatives for children and adults alike. Here is a list of the plastics-free resources she mentioned.

She recommends using Universal Lids instead of Saran Wrap. Biodegradable cornstarch bags are a great alternative to garbage bags.

Her company is called WoollyM and she has a blog that serves as a reference guide to finding alternatives to wasteful and toxic products. She also speaks to kids, families and schools about waste-free lunches.
