Watch out for reusable bamboo mugs.
"Bamboo mugs are made from a melamine resin reinforced with bamboo fibres. While they are reusable, they are often marketed as eco-friendly, even though they aren’t biodegradable. Melamine resin is a polymer and in itself not dangerous, but its monomers – 1,3,5-triazine-2,4,6-triamine and formaldehyde – are toxic and can cause cancer."
That's a very good question. I suppose it could be that bamboo mugs are lighter and less breakable. I can't think of any other reason for them.
@celesteh @meena @cdmnky @wizardofosmium the only plastics I *really* trust as food safe are (HD)PE, PP and PLA. Everything else has possibly weird leachates, although I personally think the risk is small and I won't avoid drinking from them.
You generally have no idea what '7 - other' consists of.
Only codes 1 - 6 are economically recycylable.
Watch out for 'BPA free' PC! They just at BPE or similar which is pretty much the same. ...
