How often do you go back and read them anyway?
Simple tip for quickly reducing your exposure to BPA coming at ya'. Ready for it? When you're at a store and they say would you like a receipt, just say no or ask for an emailed one.
Unless you really need the receipt because you think you will be returning an item or because you have to show proof of what you purchased to be reimbursed from work or for taxes, chances are receipts aren't doing you any good. If you are like me, the receipts you do get just end up cluttering your wallet or floating around in the bottom of your bag.
While that may seem harmless, receipts are actually covered in BPA (or it's chemical cousin BPS) powder.
