Dear Fellow Heirs, For all those who inquired and for those who wanted resources on the safety of reuse, but didn't know where to look, we're very pleased to share recently released FAQ/fact sheet on the safety of reuse during Covid (also attached). Please feel free to share, use, cite, adapt - it's open source :).
In the attached PDF,
you'll find answers to:
1) Can COVID-19 spread through contact with surfaces of products? 2) If the virus can transfer from surfaces - are disposable products safer than reusable ones? 3) What do the federal government guidelines say about retail food safety and reusable foodware and products used by consumers and businesses? 5) What does the food industry say about retail safety and reusable foodware? 6) Are reusable products and services regulated? 7) How can workers be protected when customers bring reusables into retail? 8) Are bring-your-own (BYO) reusable products the main way to reduce waste and plastic pollution in retail food service?
Please keep reducing and reusing your plastics - we don't want to drown in them!
Stay well and make a difference,
Jens and the Kentucky Heirs
