When drinking liquids on the go we often reach for the most convenient option from the local store or coffee shop. However, buying a reusable container is a much better choice for the environment as plastic bottles and containers are not biodegradable and end up in landfills.
In addition to polluting the environment, plastic bottle contain toxic chemicals like BPA and phthalates which have been linked to cancer and chronic health problems. Likewise, aluminium bottles are not safe because aluminium is a metal that is toxic to health.
Glass and ceramic bottles are safely reusable and don’t contain any chemicals toxic to your health, but they can be fragile and break. This can lead to injuries and requires you to keep purchasing new containers.
Stainless steel bottles, mugs and containers are by far the safest, healthiest and most reliable reusable containers on the market. They are long-lasting, strong and almost never break on impact. Stainless steel is easy to clean, can be put in the dishwasher and is resistant to rust and stains. It is well known for its antibacterial properties and is often used in the food service industry for that reason.
Stainless steel containers are free of BPA, phthalates, lead and other toxins which make them healthy for you and your family to use. It is non-reactive and so it does not need to be lined and is safe to use with acid liquids too. Stainless steel is also ideal for carrying both cold and hot liquids and is an insulating material so you can carry your morning coffee with you to work!
Even when you no longer have use for your stainless steel container, they can be completely recycled and thus do not contribute to the chain of waste.
