When we think of a tiffin box, most of us see the same image in our mind – a bright shiny plastic box with your lunch in it. That is the lunch box most of us had our entire childhood and probably still do. It has become a norm of the day and nobody wonders about it anymore. They have become one of the most commonly used things in our kitchen. Whatever the situation may be, to simply pack lunch or to store your leftovers, plastic lunch boxes seem like the answer. But the fact remains that those plastic tiffin boxes are extremely harmful to us, and it is high time we stop using them. Here are five reasons why you should stop using those plastic tiffin boxes right away.
All of us know this fact to some extent but simply choose to ignore it. But the truth remains that plastic is dangerous. Your plastic lunch boxes release toxic chemicals like BPA, PVS, and phthalates into the food stored in them. Those chemicals when ingested cause us to have serious health issues like cancer, blood pressure, hormonal issues, or even a heart attack. Safe plastic lunch boxes are a myth. No plastic no matter how safe it claims to be is harmful to your health and releases these chemicals.
This is also something that we have always known. Plastic is non-biodegradable and very bad for the environment. We all hear about saying no to plastic and recycling. It is high time we start implementing that. It can be with a very small and simple step by getting rid of our plastic lunch boxes. We can switch to better options and do our little part in saving the environment.
There is so much plastic around us that it is now literally in everything around us. Almost all the food we eat has some amount of plastic in it. It enters our bodies every day. And many studies say that it can lead to major health problems like obesity. This has a lot of side effects and invites even more health problems which start a slowly intensifying chain reaction until your health starts to spiral down completely.
How many times have you opened your plastic lunch box at lunchtime and found something fresh and hot and tasty to eat it? Never. Because that is what your plastic lunch box does to your food. It releases chemical compounds into it, which takes the deliciousness out of it as well as its freshness. Consequently, it also takes all the fun out of a lunchtime.
Plastic may highly toxic and not serve any good purpose but it was all there was if you needed a stylish and cool lunch box. So it was all you could use. But now there is a new option available - a glass lunchbox. A glass tiffin box keeps your food safe and free from chemicals. It does not react with your food or let any outside component react with it. As a result, your food is fresh and hot until lunchtime when you use an airtight glass lunch box.
