Hi, everyone. On my quest to become mostly plastic free, I have encountered obstacles, some of them financial, but also the urge to not further pollute the earth in the process of trying to make things better. I want to try to do this without having to buy a whole lot of new stuff. After all, new stuff costs money and it is often packaged in plastic no matter where you buy it. I have a Subzero brand stainless steel water bottle that I have had for several years since about 2005, I think. Is there any way to tell if it is BP free?
I tried to search online for this and found nothing definitive. If not, I think I will try to order a glass bottle from drugstore.com or maybe a kleen kanteen bottle.

Stainless steel is BPA-free because it doesn't need a liner. Aluminum bottles are the ones to worry about because they require a lining to keep them from corroding. Just make sure your bottle is stainless steel. And when in doubt, contact the manufacturer.
