polypro safe what about acrylic?


Recommended Posts

we all know that polypro is safe for scents--is doesn't leak nor does it suck out the scents--but is acrylic safe? I'm not certain how it falls into the plastics scale ratings. Does anyone else know?

here's the list i'm talking about, just don't know where acrylic fits in:

Type 1 - PETE Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) Soda & water containers, some waterproof packaging.

Type 2 - HDPE High-Density Polyethylene Milk, detergent & oil bottles. Toys and plastic bags.

Type 3 - V Vinyl/Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) Food wrap, vegetable oil bottles, blister packages.

Type 4 - LDPE Low-Density Polyethylene Many plastic bags. Shrink wrap, garment bags.

Type 5 - PP Polypropylene Refrigerated containers, some bags, most bottle tops, some carpets, some food wrap.

Type 6 - PS Polystyrene Throwaway utensils, meat packing, protective packing.

Type 7 - OTHER Usually layered or mixed plastic. No recycling potential - must be landfilled.
