Back in 2009 I discovered a phenomenal company called Life without Plastic when I had the opportunity of doing a review and giveaway with them. They sent me a Stainless Steel Airtight Watertight Food Storage Container as well as a Stainless Steel Hot Meal Container to test out, and these 2 products are still used at my house to this day! These products rock, period!!
We know too much plastic ruins the earth. And plastics containing BPA ruin our health. BPA is short for bisphenol A, and studies have shown that it can cause cancer and other medical illnesses in animals. Well, some companies are pioneering the move to BPA-free products, to keep us humans safe.
We’ve seen reference to the dangers plastic poses to marine life and wildlife, garbage that we humans directly and indirectly deposit in the oceans or on the earth, but how clearly have we received the message? Not clearly enough it seems!
Once animals, marine life or wildlife ingest plastic, thousands of spines lining the throat and esophagus make it nearly impossible to regurgitate. The plastic can lead to partial or even complete obstruction of the gastrointestinal tract, resulting in decreased digestive efficiency, energetic and reproductive costs and, for some, starvation.
Plastics ingestion doesn’t always cause death, but there are clearly health risks! The frustrating, yet hopeful aspect is that humans can easily begin addressing the solution, without major lifestyle changes. It’s as simple as reducing packaging and moving towards alternative, biodegradable materials and recycling.
And this is why I am certainly grateful for “Life Without Plastic”!!
About this wonderful company, a blurb from their website:
Who We Are: Activists for a Plastic Free Planet
“We launched Life Without Plastic (“LWP”) in 2006 after several years of daydreaming about how to make a contribution to reducing the large quantities of plastic that are consumed every second of every day around the world. We played with ideas for raising awareness about the issue. We wanted to address the environmental disaster that the consumption of plastic is causing, and the damage that leaching plastic can cause to human and animal health. We quickly realized that before we could effectively help people reduce their plastic consumption, we had to be able to point them toward non-plastic alternatives that could replace the plastic items currently used in day-to-day life. When Life Without Plastic was created, very few alternatives existed in the North American market, especially for food and drink containers. Our son was born in 2003, and he was the catalyst. He made us look more actively for alternatives in North America and in other countries around the world. This is how Sanctus Mundo, our unique product brand, came into existence.
Fast forward three years to 2009 and here we are. There are now many more alternatives to plastic products available thanks, for example, to the tremendous media attention on bisphenol A over the past two years. Yet one thing we are noticing is that the quality of these alternatives varies significantly. There are some wonderful new products created with a real concern for quality, health, the environment, and workers conditions. But there are other products out there that are unsafe. For example, not all stainless steel is created equal, and as with many things, price is often an indicator of quality.
As we continue to fulfill our goal of making available more and more high quality alternatives to plastic products, we are now able to begin focusing increased attention on an equally important element of our mission: raising awareness about plastics issues by providing solid science– and experience-based information and showing people, one person at a time, the beauty and simplicity of a life without plastic.”
This great company carries all sorts of alternatives to plastic, making the environment such a better place.
They sell all kind of sweet products, including:

This time around they sent me some fantastic Freezycup™ Ice Pop Molds to try out and as per usual, Life without Plastic did not disappoint!!
Summer at the Diotte household means refreshing popsicle time. We eat popsicles all throughout the day and the evening. We devour them when we’re blazing from the hot summer sun, like we have been for most of this summer. We chow on popsicles at any old time because they are refreshing, fun, and when they’re not loaded with sugar and artificial food colouring like the ones you might buy in the store, they’re very healthy and also an eco-friendly soothing snack for people both young and old!
These Freezycup™ Ice Pop Molds are made of stainless steel and come with three reusable bamboo sticks and two silicone gaskets each.
Popsicles are one of the easiest make-it-yourself treats both because they’re quick (not counting freezing time), and because they use up fruit that might be too ripe to eat but very easy to puree. All you need to make popsicles is:
* Life without Plastic Freezycup™ Ice Pop Molds
* a mixture of whatever tinkles your fancy, (whatever you would like to eat in your popsicle)
* a blender of some sort to puree the ingredients so you can pour them into your Freezycup™ Ice Pop Molds; and
* a funnel so you can easily pour the puree into these awesome Ice Pop Molds.
These are the best Freezycup™ Ice Pop Molds by far that we have ever tried! No more shopping for supermarket popsicles now thanks to these molds from Life without Plastic! They rock!!!!!
