A5 Water Bottle
BPA free water bottle to refill and minimize the amount of single used plastic bottles.
The shape and weight of this water bottle is immensely practical for daily use as it is very slim and fits into almost all bags types, also it’s not heavy weighted which is a huge plus comparing it to glass and stainless steel bottles.
We use all types of refillable cups, flasks and bottles and we find that this one is truly beneficial and fun to use in our work and traveling life.
- BPA stands for bisphenol A.
- BPA is an industrial chemical that has been used to make certain plastics and resins since the 1960s.
- BPA is found in polycarbonate plastics and epoxy resins. Polycarbonate plastics are often used in containers that store food and beverages, such as water bottles. They may also be used in other consumer goods.
Use BPA-free products. Manufacturers are creating more and more BPA-free products. Look for products labeled as BPA-free. If a product isn't labeled, keep in mind that some, but not all, plastics marked with recycle codes 3 or 7 may be made with BPA.
Cut back on cans. Reduce your use of canned foods since most cans are lined with BPA-containing resin.
Avoid heat. The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, part of the National Institutes of Health, advises against microwaving polycarbonate plastics or putting them in the dishwasher, because the plastic may break down over time and allow BPA to leach into foods.
Use alternatives. Use glass, porcelain or stainless steel containers for hot foods and liquids instead of plastic containers.
