Why should you reheat items in glass or ceramic? According to Practically Green: Heating plastic in the microwave may leach toxins such as DEHA and BPA into food depending on what kind of plastic it is. To be safe and avoid confusion, a "no plastic in the microwave" policy can avoid exposure to those chemicals which have been found in high concentrations to be linked to diabetes, heart disease and liver failure. Using ceramic also reduces the waste associated with plastic. (insert bad mommy face, yet again)
I have been making good use of my Pyrex and ceramic dishes. I still use the plastic to store and freeze, I just don't use it in the microwave.
Remember this coffee cup? It has started to be my "soup" container when I visit Soupcon. It's the same size of his paper bowls and that way, I won't be wasting paper/plastic.
Be green and happy, peeps!
