15 Ways to Cut Down on Chemicals in Your Life

2. Do not microwave food in plastic containers or on plastic plates. Heating the plastic makes the chemicals soak more into your food than just storing food in plastic containers.

3. Avoid plastic water bottles or be sure to choose BPA free plastic water bottles.
