How safe are plastic shoe boxes (environmental question)
My closet has shelves for shoe boxes. I have been contemplating replacing all my cardboard shoe boxes with plastic ones from Dollar Store or Big Lots. But, I am concerned about the dangers or having too much plastic in one closet. I have a lot of shoes. I know there are many reports that it is best not to microwave food in plastic, freeze bottled water in plastic, etc. But what about offgassing from plastic storage? My husband wants to get rid of cardboard because he is sure it brings bugs into the house. I suppose he has a good point. How to weight the good and bad of different storage options is my question.
