Plastic - What Is BPA? What Can We Do About It?
BPA is a man-made compound that has been around for over a hundred years and can be found in food, toiletries, lining canned foods, plastic packaging household items, sports equipment and more. Its basic job is to strengthen whatever item it is included in. In plastics, it makes them stronger and more resilient – hardening them to the rigours of daily life, hence BPA has been found in drink bottles and food containers.
