Checked out all the plastic in you newer car bodies and interiors?
Then there's the composites used indise and out in current aircraft construction.
Home appliances and major housing components.
List goes on ... not all replaceable with glass.
But we can replace the ones that hold food with glass. Do you chew your car interior much? Eat your shoes?

But, it shouldn't be the federal government's job to determine local water quality either. That's for each state to decide. Water supplies don't cross state lines in the sense of being supplied to individual customers, so what business is it of the federal government?
This is another over-reach by the EPA who has no business in this particular issue.

You do understand that water is used in just about everything? It's not just the "libero-comunist tap water" that is affected.

Scientists have struggled to research the impact of plastic on the human body, because they cannot find a control group of humans who have not been exposed.
Good news is that this is clearly becoming a talking point that will probably make climate change/gw forgotten.
