Aha! I never trusted those damn receipts!

I had previously learned that the thermally-printed store register receipts, now so common, are not easily (if at all) recyclable, so I do not put them in the recycling bin. Now I learn they may be effing toxic!

Sheesh, everywhere I turn, it seems there's a new danger! Is ANY of our technology even benign, let alone sustainable?

I just emailed my grocery, which produces thermally-printed receipts, to ask if they use BPA-free papers (or if they even know about the problem). You might want to write to your favorite stores and inquire about same.
