You’re definitely aware of the environmental issues that single use plastic creates, but do you know about the health risks linked to it? Onegreenbottle was started to provide a BPA/BPS free alternate to single use plastic which was non-leaching and toxin free. But what does all this actually mean?
BPA and BPS stand for bisphenol A and bisphenol S and they are chemicals which are used in the production of certain plastics. Although the FDA has said that it is safe for adults in very low levels, this research is ongoing.Why subject yourself to BPA/BPS when there are alternatives that are better for the environment too?
The concern with BPA and BPS is more serious when it comes to children. BPA is known to mimic oestrogen and exposure as a baby or child has been linked to reproductive harm, increased vulnerability to cancer, and negative impacts on brain development and metabolism. Research has also suggested BPA to be linked to increased blood pressure, type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. The easiest way to avoid BPA and BPS all together is to ditch plastic, especially when considering products children eat and drink from. This is why onegreenbottle developed the stainless steel baby bottle. The bottle itself is made from stainless steel and the adaptable mouth pieces are made from non-toxic silicone. As well as this, all of onegreenbottle’s water bottles are BPA and BPS free, with the bottles also being made from stainless steel and the caps being made from BPA and BPS free polypropylene.
