Use plastics labeled as Microwave Safe

A study revealed that a plastic waste will take 300 years to get mixed with soil. That means it can potentially cause damage to nature.

To make plastic wraps clingy and flexible, ingredients called plasticizers are used. This particular ingredient can cause cancer and other health problems. All plastic wraps available in the market should be approved for microwave usage by FDA. Always use plastic containers labeled as “microwave-safer”.

You can substitute waxed or parchment paper wraps for plastics or cloth cover can also be used. Now processed plastics are available in the market, which can be given priority.

On a whole, avoid plastics and use alternatives. We can leave clean world to our future generation. Even we can live a healthy life.
