I've been trying to use less and less plastic. I joined the local co-op and just figured out you can bring your own containers and fill them there. AND they have a big variety of stuff in the bulk department. I always noticed they had granola and beans, but they also have spices! Lots and lots of spices. This is so much fun. I'm using my mason jars. Pretty soon this whole house is going to be run off of mason jars. I am so leery of the BPA in the cans and I'm trying to use less plastic, so glass just seems safer. The reuseable lids of the mason jars also has BPA in it, but that does not touch the food and I'm looking into alternatives for that also. So far the hardest thing not to use plastic on is freezer bags. I know you can freeze in glass, but I've done it and I've had shattered glass in my freezer, not pretty. I'm still working on that one.
