Glass vs. Plastic
In the big health debate about plastic vs glass water bottles, glass appears to come out on top. It helps to be aware about the chemicals that plastic bottles contain. These allegedly include bisphenol A – the plastic that can effect hormone levels when released into the water (particularly in hot temperatures) and which specifically imitate female hormones in the body.
And what about the eco credentials? Plastic bottles don’t get recycled properly – glass bottles do – many have a life guarantee. What is more, if you reuse plastic bottles, bacteria can thrive if they are not thoroughly washed.
You can clean glass or steel bottles easily and with a stylish range of options available (all with protective sleeves) – it’s a no-brainer.
