Our customers ask “What is BPA?” and “Do People in Plastic products contain BPA?”. So here’s the answer…
BPA stands for Bisphenol A, which is an industrial chemical that is used to make polycarbonate and epoxy resins.
Polycarbonate is a light weight plastic that is used in a variety of products, including some reusable food and drink containers.
Epoxy resins are used mainly in plastic protective coatings, for example, in metal cans. BPA has long been suspected as being hazardous to human health and there has been concern over the chemical leaching out of plastic packaging, particularly
in plastic babies bottles.
Plastic marked with a #7 are often polycarbonate and may contain BPA. People in Plastic do not sell polycarbonate plastic.
We sell Australian made products and our suppliers use top grade resins that are BPA free.
