Choose It, Lose it: Reusable water bottles

Choose It:

  1. Stainless-steel beverage bottles
  2. Tempered glass baby bottles
  3. Bottles specifically made to be reused, crafted out of plastic that have not been found to leach toxic chemicals:
  • High-density polyethylene (HDPE #2)
  • Low-density polyethylene (HDPE #4)
  • Polypropylene (PP #5)
  • Tritan copolyester (OTHER #7), a new transparent plastic the the manufacturer assures is made without BPA

Lose It:

  1. Bottles made with polycarbonate PC #7, also known as Lexan, which can release toxic Bisphenol A (BPA) into their contents.
  2. Reusing disposable plastic water or juice bottles made of polyethylene (PET, or PETE, #1), more than once or twice.
