Aku terlihat 1 email ini di dlm folder hubby ku..maybe de some of reader balog aku nie de dpt kot email ni..tp aku jus nk share wif others...sbb sgt berguna info ni..tp aku xpasti kesahihanye..but boleh check kot kt mn2...



Did u ever drink from a plastic bottle and see a triangle symbol on the bottom with a number inside?



Do you know what the number stands for?

Did you guess that it's just for recycling?

Then you are wrong!!!!!

THE NUMBER TELLS YOU

THE CHEMICAL MAEK UP O THE PLASTIC....


1) Polyethylene terephalate (PET)
2) High density polyethylene (HDPE)
3) Unplasticized polyvinyl chloride (UPVC) or Plasticized polyvinyl chloride (PPVC)
4) Low density polyethylene LDPE
5) Polypropylene (PP)
6) Polystyrene (PS) or Expandable polystyrene (EPS)
7) Other, including nylon and acrylic

What you aren't told is that many of the plastics used are toxic and the chemicals used to create a plastic can leach out of the plastic and into the food / drink.
Think about it, how many times have you or a friend said "I don't like this, it taste like the plastic bottle ..... "
THAT'S BECAUSE YOU ARE TASTING THE PLASTIC
The
WORST ONES are Nos: 3, 6, and 7!!!
DO NOT
USE THESE NUMBERS if stated at the bottom of the bottle)!!!


Check out this chart that breaks down the plastic, its uses and chemical makeup
(I find #7 a little scary)

Reusing plastic bottles by refilling them is NOT a good idea. WATCH THIS VIDEO:
