Safe Drinking Bottle (Part 2)

As per what I mentioned in Safe Drinking Bottle, my target now is to find safe and reaiable drinking bottles.

My dear and I are so eager to complete the mission since this is related to health. We shopped at a department store last evening. After inspecting each of the models, we found all felton bottles that available there are marked with #7. I managed to find some kid's drinking bottles marked with #5 and #6. The worst is some bottles do not even contain the plastic code. Bear in mind #3, #6 and #7 are no longer exist in my list. I hope you've cancel those in your list too. So, for safety purpose, I choose #2, #4 and #5 only. Unfortunately, we didn't manage to find any. Very disappointed! :(

I did my task at home as well. I found that #2 material is mostly used in the supplement bottles. I'm not sure about yours, but my Amway branded supplements' bottles are proudly marked as #2 at their bottom. :)

As for #5 it's mostly used in the transparent food containers that marked with "SUITABLE FOR USE IN MICRO-WAVE OVEN".

We did a quick search on Google, and the result of the safest water bottle is - the Aluminium bottle.

If we really can't find reliable plastic bottles, we will proceed to find our Aluminum bottles.

Meanwhile, I'm back to my old Tupperware.

If you're looking for an alternative, less expensive source for high quality stainless steel bottles, visit CynerGreen's website and their kids website.
They promote plastic free and completely BPA free water bottles, selling both to individuals and in volume.
I have one and I really love it.
