It’s easy to be green about your water-drinking habits when you’re at home. But how can you be as earth-conscious when you’re on the go?
The answer is to get a reusable water bottle that you can take with you and periodically refill. But before you make the purchase, you need to be aware of the types of water containers that exist.
One-time use plastic bottles
These containers hold water, soda or juice and are the ones the one most likely to find in grocery and convenience stores. The problem with these bottles is that the plastic used to make them contains polyethylene terephthalate (PET). While this plastic is generally considered safe, some researchers have suggested that PET may leach potentially harmful chemicals over time.
Regular multiple-use plastic bottles
Made of polycarbonate plastic, these containers are also quite safe. But it’s important to bear in mind that sunglasses, computer shells, CDs and almost everything made from plastic contains polycarbonate. Studies have indicated that even these plastics–and especially when heated–may also leach.
Aluminum or stainless steel bottles
These kinds of bottles are probably the best and safest ones you can buy. They’re difficult to break or crack, don’t easily stain or interact with whatever product you’re consuming and, most importantly of all, don’t leach chemicals.
