Throwing your life away: how safe is disposable plastic cutlery?

1 post in this topic

So helpful on picnics and when you are on the road plastic cutlery is. On the other hand, it is quite harmful to our environment and health. Normally it is made of polystyrene which will not decompose in centuries. As all other plastic it can get into wild animals food chain and then finally into human's. But it makes you wonder if it is toxic to human health before you even start considering the environmental impact. Is it likely that polystyrene ends up in tap water? What are the deleterious effects of polystyrene to our health?
