Read here everything you need to know about the benefits of the stainless steel bottle and why it is the best and most economical hydration option.
1. YOUR HEALTH:
Stainless steel water bottles are better for you because by kicking the plastic water bottle habit, you can protect yourself from harmful chemicals.
They help you avoid BPA
The Japanese and Canadians have completely banned BPA or bisphenol-A. Following their lead, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) banned BPA from baby bottles and sippy cups in 2012. So why do they still allow it in plastic water bottles.
Studies show that BPA is harmful to your health. Plastic-free stainless steel bottles are 100% BPA-free.
They do not contain other harmful chemicals
Despite studies showing a clear link between BPA and reproductive problems, BPA is still ubiquitous in many plastic bottles, including single-use and reusable water bottles.
However, did you know that even if a plastic bottle is BPA-free, it still potentially contains other toxins?
If they've been sitting for a while or exposed to heat, almost all plastic bottles leak other endocrine-disrupting chemicals.
Stainless steel water bottles keep mold and other bacteria at bay
Stainless steel water bottles are sustainable
Did you know that people only recycle around 12% of the plastic water bottles they buy? And of that 12%, only 50% of everything we put in the recycling bin is actually recycled.
This means that the vast majority of plastic water bottles end up in our landfills, where they each take around 1,000 years to decompose. During this time, harmful chemicals leak into our environment.
They require less resources and less energy
Bottled water production requires 17 million bottles of oil per year. Additionally, in just one week, 40,000 18-wheeler trucks hit our roads just to deliver bottled water to retailers nationwide. This adds to the many fossil fuels required just to manufacture and transport the bottles. Then, if not recycled, all of these natural resources end up in our landfills as the bottles decompose.
They don't hold odors
Sound familiar? You fill your plastic bottle with a homemade iced tea latte and bring it with you to work. Yum! It sits on your desk all day and you leave it in the sink overnight (ouch). The next morning, you run it through the dishwasher and refill it with ice water. On the way to work, you notice that your iced water tastes like tea.!
High quality stainless steel water bottles do not retain flavors. So you can be sure that whatever you fill it with, you won't end up with a cup of water that smells like coffee in the morning.
Unlike plastic and glass containers, one of the biggest advantages of stainless steel thermos bottles is that they can keep your drinks hot or cold longer. Keeping your drinks hot for up to 12 hours and cold for up to 24 hours, the stainless steel bottles help you enjoy your drink at the temperature you want.
Drinking from stainless steel bottles is a much cheaper habit than drinking bottled water
Bottled water holds the second largest share of the US beverage market. Americans drink more bottled water than beer and milk and spend more than $12 billion a year on it. Our consumption increases every year, making it an expensive habit.
