What Is BPA?
BPA, or bisphenol-A, is an industrial chemical commonly used in the manufacturing of plastics and resins. It is believed that BPA was first used beginning in the 1960s. Common applications of these types of plastics—called polycarbonate plastics—are in food and beverage containers found in grocery stores and other consumer goods.
What Is the Difference Between BPA-Free & Regular Water Bottles?
A common question amongst our customers is, “What is the difference between BPA-free and regular water bottles?” Well, the answer is simple. BPA-free water bottles are manufactured without the presence of bisphenol-A. Other traditional or older water bottles that are “regular,” or non-BPA-free water bottles, are made using bisphenol-A.
Is My Health at Risk If I Drink from Regular Water Bottles?
According to the federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA), your health is not at risk if you consume BPA in small amounts, and consuming minimal levels of the chemical are not toxic to the human body. However, some water drinkers choose to drink from BPA-free water bottles to increase water purity and minimize health risks.
