 @BethTerry Yes I believe my whole dishwasher is made of plastic too, but I wish it wasn't...  My new philosophy is buy something that lasts forever... so looking at stuff made of plastic I know I, ironically, that it may last in some form forever, however, for what it is designed for it will not last forever because plastic breaks down... Stainless steel would have been a better option for the rack because it would last forever :) So I will write the company and ask why not stainless steel. Thanks :)

 @Eco novice I totally agree with you... I experience the same things in school... but I try to explain to the school staff or any party why I don't want certain x product around my family... I will even given scientific papers or data. No matter how much data or logic I use, convenience & costs outweighs anything and everything. Knowing this I have even offered, at times, to purchase the healthier alternative to get around the costs fear, however they still refuse. Of course that is very frustrating... So I believe we need numbers to change things for the masses because as an individual I have no power and that has been proven a lot of times. Mass change takes mass numbers.But I still believe we need to make personal changes. Why ask for mass change but be unwilling to make changes yourself? It's almost as crazy as politicians saying "Well China needs to change first because they pollute more." I don't believe we live in a closed system world... meaning I can do anything I want because it doesn't affect anything else. No, I believe we live in an interconnected world. My life and choices affect not only myself but anything everything around me. This is why I will strive to make personal life changing choices for myself and my family. I am not only concerned about my families health but the health of all living creatures. Ironically this unselfish view should be the motivator for the personal change. If your focus is on others you will stop yourself falling into the trap of "Convenience and Cost" that will so often prevent you from making the right choice.
