Stainless Steel Water Bottles: The Perfect Reusable Bottles for Work or Play

Stainless water bottles are an eco-friendly and economical choice for consuming water or staying hydrated throughout the day.  That’s because they don’t contain the compound BPA, which has been linked to prostate and breast cancer. The substance has also been known to cause such health problems as heart disease, diabetes and arrhythmia.

BPA, also known as bisphenol A, is used in the manufacture of plastic bottles and thus can leach out into the water of such bottles. Therefore, many bottles made of plastic containing BPA are unsafe. Unlined stainless steel bottles are free of harmful substances such as BPA, phthalates, lead and microbial contaminants.

A number of brands offer stainless steel water bottles that are attractively designed and come in a variety of colors. Some of the best brands to consider are New Wave Enviro, Ecousable and Thinksport. Let’s take a look at some of their offerings.

Ecousable Stainless Steel Water Bottles

Ecousable offers the Ech02 line of stainless water bottles in both 18 oz. and 25 oz. sizes. The BPA-free metal water bottles with filter are ideal for removing offensive tastes and odors that are a result of chlorine and salt. The filters also remove microbial contaminants such as VOCs or volatile organic compounds (which include detergents and pesticides) as well as dissolved solids, such as copper, lead, mercury and asbestos. Simply unscrew the filter from the bottle to add water and screw it back on. It comes with a flip-up top with a built-in straw. Choose from a number of colors, such as royal blue, silver, dark green, pink, purple or red. Clean up is easy and only entails washing the stainless water bottle with a mild detergent and lukewarm water. For a more thorough cleaning, rinse the bottle out with white distilled vinegar on a weekly basis.

New Wave Enviro Steel Water Bottles

New Wave Enviro also features a line of steel water bottles that are made from safe, food-grade stainless steel. Their 20 ounce stainless water bottle comes unlined and is BPA, lead and phthalate-free. It comes in a variety of colors, including red, green, blue, gold, silver and turquoise. The throat and lid of the metal water bottle are made of #5 polypropylene, which is a safe, food-grade plastic.

Thinksport

Thinksport offers 12 ounce and 25 ounce stainless steel water bottles. Each size of bottle comes in silver or black. The steel water bottles feature a double steel wall for insulating drinks as well as for providing durability and added strength.

Ecousable, New Wave Euro and Thinksport all provide high-quality stainless steel water bottles that are eco-friendly too. Keep them in mind if you want to purchase reusable metal water bottles that offer a safe way to consume water at a low cost to you.

If you want to reduce the costs you pay for bottled water as well as contribute to making the environment safer too, then any of the BPA-free plastic water bottles and steel water bottles available online are worth considering.

Defining BPA-free Plastic

You may be asking what BPA-free plastic is. BPA is a chemical compound that is used in the manufacture of certain plastics and has been linked to breast and prostate cancer.  BPA can leach out into the liquid of any container which has been manufactured with this compound; therefore, it’s important to choose safe plastics that have not be made with BPA as well as steel bottles that haven’t been lined with materials containing lead or phthalates, also known to be harmful when used in drinking bottles.
