Look around your house
What materials do you see? You probably have some wood and fabric, and perhaps some metal. But what you also likely have a lot of—more than you might realize—is plastic. Plastic is everywhere.

As revolutionary a product as plastic is, it also has been found to hold more potential for harm that was originally thought. Plastic can leach out chemicals, and those chemicals have been found to be harmful to several body processes, including reproductive health.
