April is a great month! Not only is it green with spring flowers but also fun for kids who are out of school for Easter and Passover. April is also a good time for thinking about more GREEN eco-friendly changes we can make. Our TIP is combine Easter-Friendly-And-Eco-Friendly.
Gorgeously Green is a good read or gift for any occasion with many assorted topics of GREEN TIPS. Best Selling Author Sophie Uliano’s advice for women has an introduction by Julia Roberts who strongly endorses the book. Unfortunately, during the holidays promotional products involve use of plastics. Do avoid buying those and recycle whenever possible. If celebrating Easter in traditional mode, use old baskets you can freshly paint with milk paint, fill it with shredded recycled paper, fresh cooked vegetable died Easter eggs, and a good book on GREEN living.
A plastic water bottle can cause great harm for so many reasons. Some people like aluminum water bottles that are currently trendy, but they’re unsafe when a car becomes overheated from sun exposure. Heated metal will leach into water. Remember that water also acts as a solvent. Many of us intuitively feel that leaving bottled water in your car can be very dangerous. Heat reacts with plastic and releases toxic chemicals such as dioxins into water. Dioxins are a class of chemicals which have increasingly been found in breast cancer.
Avoid heating or freezing in plastics. Use ceramics or tempered glass containers made for those purposes. They last longer, are better designed, and don’t emit outgassing which can also leach into your food when storing food in the refrigerator. Make absolutely sure you don’t heat frozen foods of any kind in plastic containers in the microwave. Do transfer contents to a ceramic bowl instead. I’m not a big proponent of microwave cooking (and only keep one in our garage for purposes of warming up heat packs or towels as might be required). Several Chefs we know won’t use microwaves, considering them unhealthy to cook with. Enjoy April, please pass these TIPS to others, and send us yours!
