With the recent scare about plastic water bottles, company’s are changing up their plastics. Now they are producing plastic water bottles minus the hazardous chemicals.
Nalgene has heard our cries. They just announcedthat they will start making their bottles without the controversial BPA. Of course, government scientists are only slightly concerned, and feel that there are no known risks to human health, but Nalgene isn’t taking any chances. They decided to make the switch in response to consumer demand.
It will take several months for Nalgene to ditch the BPA from their “Outdoor” line of polycarbonate water bottles. Just so you know, they do make other reusable bottles that don’t contain this questionable chemical. Look for their newly unveiled Everyday line. They’re made out of Tritan copolyester, which is dishwasher safe and BPA free. Of course, if you have old Nalgene bottles, I’d think of some creative ways to reuse them – piggy bank? (credit)
