Today Tonight ran a story on the potential toxicity of plastic drinking bottles. A link to our website was provided as we have recently introduced stainless steel sippy cups, stainless steel kids water bottles, glass baby bottles, stainless steel adult water bottles and non leaching plastic drink bottles.
Plasticisers like phthalates are common in most types of plastic. Bisphenol A has been linked to various adverse health effects and is known to leach from many plastics as well as the inner linings of alluminium and stainless steel bottles.
Ecolibria have had non leaching plastic safe-t-bottles available for some time now but have only just received stock of the glass and stainless steel options. Strict independently certified European Union ( EU ) standard testing has been conducted on the bottles to ensure that there is no leaching of any type of phthalates, Bisphenol A or heavy metals. The stainless steel bottles have no plastic inner linings and are simply polished stainless steel.
Any plastic parts are Bisphenol A free. It has taken years of research and hard work to finally make these bottles available in Australia.
Please visit our green online shop.
Some of the bottles are so new that they have not been photographed yet but are still available for purchase.
