BPA free doesn't mean BPS free

I just happened upon a blog about BPA and BPS. Ugh it makes me so mad.

This article suggest that more and more manufacturers are adding BPS to their formulas for making plastics since the FDA required them to stop using BPA.

The studies about BPS aren't too great looking. It seems like it could end up worst for you than BPA was/is.

We admittedly use a lot of plastics-especially for left over food storage (DH would break the glass containers, if he'd take them for work), after all they are much cheaper than glass containers. We have quite a few plastic water bottles that we use on the go, too. Again kids would break glass and metal ones are hard to find locally, plus I don't like the taste of water out of metal ones, blech. This news does have me worried though. I am seriously considering phasing out as many plastic containers as I can and slowly buying glass/metal ones to replace them.

Does this news suprise you? How many plastic containers do you use? Where do you buy your glass/metal containers out?

We use a little plastic, mostly Tupperware. My metal and glass pieces are usually purchased from Target.. Bed, Bath, and Beyond.. and other department stores like JC Penney.

Why can't they just tell us what stuff is made from. Why can't we be informed of what goes in our bodies

Oh good idea! I love both of those places and it would be so easy to pick up a couple pieces every time I go without costing a lot.

We use mostly plastic but we have some metal water bottles now too.  We have a cloth diaper store that carries sippies and bottles that are glass and metal and they aret expensive.
