I was writing a ‘thank you’ post when I received an email about a petition to ban BPA from our food supply (and a couple of others), so I had to put my other post on the back burner for a minute to pass these petitions along. If you remember my Please Don’t Eat Anymore Plastic, you know how I feel about issues like these.
If you have a minute, please sign these petitions — you can make your name public or not. Thanks so much. If we all do a little, we can make a big change together.
Petition to ban BPA, a carcinogen found in plastics, etc. ["BPA is still used in various food packaging, soup cans, soda cans, and more. With all of the serious health risks BPA presents, why is it still being used in any products at all? There are perfectly safe alternatives to BPA, yet manufacturers continue to use the chemical."]:
