BPA in water bottles
Old news? Maybe. But this fact is worth constant re-stating/reminding. Many manufactueres of water bottles used materials containing BPA. Two of the larger companies that used BPA in their products were Nalgene and Sigg. According to the web-sites of both companies, they have stopped using BPA, but many of us may still have the versions of these bottles that contain BPA in our homes. Do your homework. My advice, go with BPA free stainless bottles (such as Klean Kanteen http://www.kleankanteen.com/products/classic/klean-kanteen-18oz-classic.html - or the new BPA free Sigg bottles http://mysigg.com/) or, for my comfort level, I go with good old food safe glass (Life Factory Water Bottles – http://www.lifefactory.com/ ).
