Dr. Ritamarie Loscalzo interviews Donna Kasuska
In this show you'll learn:
- How the chemicals in your food storage containers can pose a burden on your health as well as the environment.
- Strategies to know more about the different types of storage containers so that you can make better choices.
- Suggestions you can follow to reduce plastics and toxic exposures in your home.
Listen to the replay:
Storing leftovers has long been a way to stretch out our meals over the days that follow, and many kitchens are well-stocked with plastic tubs, cling wrap, and other containers. Although they cut down on food waste, some containers may pose a burden to our health, as well as on the environment. Storing food in reusable containers helps reduce environmental impacts associated with single-use containers, but knowing more about the different types of containers (including the types of resin used for plastic containers) can help you make better choices.
Join Dr. Ritamarie and Donna Kasuska as they discuss the different material options we have for food storage, as well as in the equipment and tools we use in our food preparation.

The first hour of the day is when most of us put the highest toxic load on our bodies. Through our food, air, drinking water, personal care products, and cleaning products, we unknowingly absorb hazardous substances. Wouldn't you rather transform that hour into the healthiest, most rejuvenating time of the day for you and your family?
