What’s Your Number?

The recent attention given to BPA found in plastics has gotten us all confused about which ones are safe and which ones are not.  Which “recycling” numbers have been deemed “ok” and which ones should we avoid? We did a bit of searching and found a couple of reference guides that were helpful:

Quick Start: Plastic Products at a Glance gives a one page quick reference to common household containers, separated into categories and then by brands.  It’s a bit dated (March/April 2001) but you may still have some of these products lying around.

Smart Plastics Guide goes into more detail as to what the actual numbers found on plastic containers and bottles are, which are safer choices for food and drink storage, and provides some info on baby bottles too.
