Pick of the bunch for me was $1.25 600ml x3 which btw I got the last on the shelf at Macquarie Ryde.

    Pretty sure I bought these and the clips are horrible, lids don't really clip on properly after a few uses

    • +2 votes

      Yeah I got a pack last week, when they were $3 (down from $6), they are totally useless if you want air tight, the clips are flimsy and barely stay snapped shut. Ended up returning them and got some decor ones for $1 more (also were on special) which are properly air tight and the lid stays shut.

    Plastic will make your peen smaller. Or maybe not, do you want to risk it or use glass instead

        Exactly right, it’s not like this is some conspiracy, scientists have been saying it for years

      An interesting read, but I don't know what anyone can practically do. Plastic is everywhere. Your food comes packed in it. Meat and vegetables are wrapped in it, and it's business so you can guarantee it's the cheapest form. The ocean is full of it, so the flesh of the average fish contains a scattering of the microplastics they've ingested over their lifetime. Even the water delivered to your house makes its way through plastic pipes.

      So I agree with the sentiment, but avoiding plastic containers doesn't do much. It drops your exposure to plastic from 100% to like 95%.

      If you want to make any real changes, you need to rise up, gain power and influence things from the top. For an ordinary person to do that, they need organization, and to make the most of the money they have. And you know whats a great cheap way of organizing, don't you. Plastic containers.

        All we can do is reduce exposure. I think ingested plastic is the biggest source to reduce. I do filter my water with reverse osmosis so plastic pipes can also be mitigated.

          I wish my biggest fear in life was that my penis might shrink a few mm lmao. Still can't tell if you're serious, if you're not this is top quality acting.

            @pennypincher98: I’m serious but it’s not your penis that you should be worried about, it’s your unborn child. Length is determined in the womb

        I think hormone mimickers (for estrogen in this case) are fairly widespread. Probably most of those or all of them? But most here have misunderstood the major effect on genitals - it's during development.

        I imagine as adults it will be just cancers and maybe boobs for dudes and sperm count? Poor sperm count in humanity has the potential to be the best thing that could happen to this planet.

        We have probably 20 takeaway containers in a few different sizes. We've been using them for years to reheat stuff in the microwave, take travelling (light weight, very useful, no biggy if they're lost). I even use one as a portable dog bowl when walking or riding with our dog. We have so many different plastic containers for everything, including water. All are repurposed. I don't understand why anyone would buy this stuff when they are already throwing it away.

        Old plastic is safe - all those folk throwing away their so called disposable stuff, and then continually buying new stuff; well that seems like karma.

          Old plastic is safe

          I don't think that would be 100% true.
          Old plastic may start to break down causing chemicals to be released where new plastic might not have this problem.

          •  

            @spaceflight: not much of anything is 100% - it's usually generalisations which should be taken for granted, and usually is.

            Most of the chemicals have already been released. You will know this yourself. Pick up some new plastic - it has a smell, that smell is "off gassing". If you consider this, you'll know it. Old plastic stops smelling, or giving off this smell. Quite a few people are allergic to plastic but old plastic is - generally - ok.

        I know what dosen’t have plastic: ceramic, glass, aluminium. All available to keep food. Literally sold in the same supermarket aisle

        • +1 vote

          aluminium

          Aluminium cans and tins are lined with plastic so that the food in them doesn't react with the aluminium. This is important for acidic things.

    How many ring sizers can you fit in the containers ?

    •  

      Well if that is your kick you need to buy plenty they seem to be everywhere atm, although I’m curious about what type of rings need sizing in this 2021 world 🍩

    I am not a greenie but after seeing the ocean west of Bali I would vote for a global $100 deposit on plastic waste!

      It's the same, well maybe not as bad, on the South coast of Tasmania.
