There are many dangers associated with the use of plastic ice trays. Plastics of certain varieties contain harmful chemicals including bisphenol-A (BPA), polyvinyl chloride, polystyrene and polycarbonate which release in water. This happens when the tray is exposed to heat sources such as microwave or dishwasher. Plastic trays may tend to develop cracks on account of expansion of water to ice. Plastic trays are any day unfriendly to the environment. Plastics made from polyethylene and polypropylene are best.
