Re: Receipt Till/Paper is Toxic for us and birds

The paper may be toxic and contains bpa. there are non toxic ones available, too. i hope the ones for birds, sold with toys are fine. i guess you have to check the description. most stores use the bad paper when we purchase something. You can read about it here:

BPA: Paper Receipts Found To Contain Disputed Chemical

also, there are more articles available all over. just search "receipt paper toxic"
Thanks for the heads up. I've emailed MyParrotShop to find out what their till rolls are made of as a safety precaution, as I've recommended the product to a few people, and use it myself.

I trust MyParrotShop, and from my knowledge, it was plain paper, I just want to hear confirmation from their rep to be sure.
