7 reasons why we chose stainless steel drink bottles

1. Save Money:
Although stainless steel bottles are a higher cost up front, bottled water costs 2,000 times more than tap water. If we buy only 1 bottle of water at a moderate cost of $1/bottle daily, it will take us less than three weeks to cover the cost of the stainless steel water bottle. We all know that one bottle of water a day is nowhere near enough water to keep us healthfully hydrated!

2. Toxin-free:
High quality food-grade stainless steel doesn't leach chemicals into our water.
"As scientists get better at detecting the chemicals in our bodies, they're discovering that even tiny quantities of toxins can have a potentially serious impact on our health — and our children's future. Chemicals like bisphenol A (BPA) and phthalates — key ingredients in modern plastics — may disrupt the delicate endocrine system, leading to developmental problems. A host of modern ills that have been rising unchecked for a generation — obesity, diabetes, autism, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder — could have chemical connections." 

3. Aluminum-free
Aluminum has been associated with with toxic effects and allergic reactions. Rather than worrying about whether the aluminum is leaching into our drinks, regardless of whether the bottle's lined or not, we simply choose to avoid aluminum bottles.

4. Simply Safe
No need to worry about whether or not our bottles' liners are intact. Unlike aluminum bottles, stainless bottles need no liners.

5. Taste:
Stainless steel doesn't retain flavors or make our drinks taste funky.

6. 100% Recyclable
Stainless steel bottles are 100% recyclable. Not only that, rather than being downcycled (reclaiming a material for reuse in a product of lesser value - as is the case with most plastics) when stainless steel is recycled, it can be made into the exact same quality product.

7. Less Waste:
By refilling and reusing our stainless steel bottle for years to come, we are keeping thousands of plastic bottles from entering the waste stream. Additionally, our consumption of tap water cuts down on the production costs of bottled water in terms of the environment.
