Why? Many reasons, including Rodale's top three:
- Plastic is from either petroleum or natural gas, two nonrenewable resources extracted in ways that pollute our air and water.
- Plastic manufacturers add chemicals to certain types of plastics that can be highly toxic, like bisphenol A and phthalates.
- Very few types of plastic are widely recycled.
