Do you use drinking water containers? You might think that a drinking water container is a simple item that does not require much caution. The answer may seem to be simple however, you should be aware of some facts.
The assumption here is that you have a good home water purification system that can remove contaminants such as lead, chlorine, THMs, VOCs, cysts, herbicides, pesticides, medications, and other traces that may be unsafe for consumption. As a result, your water is the purest it can be.
To keep your water safe, you need to ensure the containers you are using do not seep harmful chemicals into your drinks. Containers such as plastic and polycarbonate break down incrementally as you use them. This allows small microplastics to make their way into your drinking water. While you do not smell or taste them, the chemicals can cause damage that sometimes do not show up until years after you have ingested them. The BPA found in many water bottles has been linked with cancers, infertility, and even birth defects. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
These single-use water bottles are not only incredibly bad for your health, but they are also bad for the environment. Over 60 million plastic water bottles are thrown away in America every single day. They clog up landfills, pollute rivers, and litter parks. A plastic water bottle can only be used once before it becomes an environmental concern.
Many of us are turning to reusable bottles to do our part in the fight against climate change. These bottles can be filled at home and used over and over again without exposure to harmful chemicals. A good reusable bottle can last for years without needing replacement.
The safest water container you can use is glass. The chemical composition of glass will pretty much last forever compared to plastic which breaks down over time, particularly with repeated washings. If you must use plastic reusable water containers when going on a hike or a run, make sure it is labeled BPA free for your protection.
