Meet One of Our Participant Families
Meet the Laurlund family, who gave up their usual staples—which, like most of us, included some canned foods and eating out—for our study of BPA and phthalate exposure from food packaging.
After three days of eating our fresh meals and avoiding packaged foods, their BPA levels dropped by 75 percent.
Each gift of $25 will help us educate one more family about how to reduce BPA exposure.
So what are the Laurlunds doing differently now? They're reducing their consumption of canned food and finding ways to use less plastic overall, like switching to using a French press and ceramic mugs for coffee, not microwaving in plastic, not using plastic cups and food storage, and working on replacing plastic water bottles with stainless steel for the whole family.
