websiteThe website www.badplastics.com busts safety myths propagated in the market by the plastic industry.

Many plastic products used in our dayto- day lives contain three extremely toxic chemicals, bisphenol-A (BPA), polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and phthalates.

These can cause hormonal imbalance, cancer, heart problems, behavioural problems in children and also affect unborn babies.

The “Scary Facts about Plastics” listed on the site are frightening. According to a survey, 93 per cent of human population has BPA in their bodies. Plastics abuse life in multiple ways. The website recommends safer substitutes especially for plastics that have harmful chemicals.

Another crucial feature is that it allows people to share their knowledge on the website.
