Why use BPA Free Water Bottles?
In a world with a growing emphasis on Detox and healthy lifestyle ideas, we have been constantly bombarded by fear of BPA. Here are some key FAQ's that can help you understand BPA a bit further and why you should insist on buying reusable products that are BPA Free
What is BPA?
BPA stands for the chemical Bisphenol-A.
Where can BPA be found?
BPA is a harmful chemical that has been commonly used in the production of food storage and drink containers worldwide.
Why are people concerned about BPA bad for you?
People may be concerned about BPA due to human exposure, as it has been proven that items containing BPA can leak from these products into the food or drink they are contained in and are then consumed by us.
What can I do to prevent exposure from BPA in my water?
Use BPA free products and avoid non-reusable water bottles, like the 321Water Filter Bottle and Uppercup. There are multiple different bottles on the market, and it is important to ensure the bottle you use is BPA- Free such as 321 Water or Frank Green.
What are the 321 Water Bottles made of?
The plastic we use to make our water bottles is Tritan™ Copolyester, a strong, clear plastic BPA-free plastic. It doesn't contain BPS (bisphenol S) or any other bisphenols. Tritan has been tested by four third-party labs and shown to be free of any estrogenic and androgenic activity (EA-free). The top of 321 Water is made from food-grade polypropylene, which is also BPA-free plastic.
Using BPA Free Water Bottles such as 321 Water or Frank Green and Uppercup, you won't need to worry about the negative impacts that BPA can have on your health.
