We’ve talked about avoiding bad plastics (for food and drink purposes) here on Shelterrific before. It’s definitely a hot-button issue all over the place. Feeling the need to follow suit, I picked up these great glass storage containers on my recent trip to Quebec City. I love the size and shape, but the problem of a plastic lid still remains. I justified the purchase by convincing myself that if the cover doesn’t actually touch the food I’m still OK. Plus, I’d certainly remove the cover before reheating in the microwave anyway. Mine are filled with last night’s vegetarian chili leftovers. I couldn’t find a place to buy these exact jars online, but Amazon offers lots of options. — Erica P.
