Stainless steel water bottles also eliminate the risk of harmful chemical exposure, such as BPA/BPS, commonly found in plastic bottles. Reusing plastic water bottles may seem eco-friendly, but they can become breeding grounds for bacteria and leave you subject to harm from a list of problems caused by nanoplastics
Do stainless steel bottles regulate temperature?

What are the health Benefits of using stainless steel over plastic?
Plastic bottles can contain harmful chemicals like BPA (bisphenol A), which can leach into your drink, especially if the bottle is exposed to heat. Stainless steel bottles, however, are free from such chemicals, making them a healthier choice for storing your beverages. Reusing plastic bottles may expose users to harmful bacteria thriving in the damp and warm conditions inside, further compromising health. Opting for stainless steel eliminates these risks.
