How to help protect your kids from plastic pollution

Recode’s Andrew Ross wrote an in-depth piece on the plastic pollution issue, but one of the biggest points of contention was the use of plastic containers in homes.

“It is time for the federal government to step up and do something to stop the flood of plastic from entering our communities,” Ross wrote.

“And it’s time to stop it in the U.S. where it is the biggest problem.”

To help address this issue, Recode is partnering with Plastic Safe, a company that collects data on the types of plastic used in the United States and the types it gets into our environment.
