From time to time we get questions regarding our bottles, so we thought now would be a great time to put the answers in a post.
Q: Are PET bottles safe?
A: Yes, PET plastic is approved as safe for food and beverage contact by FDA and similar regulatory agencies throughout the world, and has been for more than 30 years.
Q: Are your bottles tested?
A: Yes, our bottles have been lab tested and certified safe, as well as, having been approved by the FDA.
Q: What about BPA?
A: BPA is not a chemical component of PET. There are no chemical phthalates or bisphenol A in PET plastic, and therefore PET plastic does not leech these substances.
Q: Are the bottles safe to freeze?
A: Absolutely. It’s important to understand that single-serve PET plastic bottles do not contain compounds capable of producing dangerous substances under conditions of normal use, including being subjected to hot cars or placed in a freezer.
Q: What about dioxins?
A: There are no dioxins in plastics. The Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health has weighed in on the issue of freezing PET bottles. Its website states: “This is an urban legend. Freezing actually works against the release of chemicals…[freezing] would limit chemical release if there were dioxins in plastic, and we don’t think there are.”
Q: Are your bottles recyclable?
A: Yes, our bottles are 100% recyclable. PET is accepted at virtually all recycling programs across the country. For every pound of recycled PET flake used, energy use is reduced by 84%; greenhouse gas emission by 71%.
