The battle against plastic is raging on and people all over the world are thinking up ways of making food and drink packaging, among other things, more sustainable. Here at Mountain Park Spring Water, we have started to sell stainless steel water bottles to use with your water dispensers. This allows you to easily carry water with you throughout the day without creating excess waste produced by lots of small plastic bottles.
If you’re not yet converted to the ways of stainless steel water bottles, here are some of the main benefits of using them.
Stainless steel is an incredibly strong and long-lasting material, so you can get real value for money from your stainless steel water bottle by using it over a long period of time. Individual-use plastic water bottles, in comparison, are incredibly flimsy and not normally fit to be used repeatedly. Even plastic bottles designed for reuse are much weaker than stainless steel ones, and may not be suitable for dishwashers.
Stainless steel bottles are completely recyclable, and the methods used for recycling them are much safer and environmentally friendly than the process of recycling plastic. This is good news for the environment when you decide to get rid of your bottle or buy a new one.
They’re BPA free
BPA is a potentially harmful chemical found in some plastics that can become a problem when a plastic bottle is reused over and over again. While many plastic bottles are now made to be BPA-free, you can rest even easier knowing that your stainless steel bottle is safe, as this is not an ingredient found in steel.
An added benefit of stainless steel bottles compared to plastic bottles is that they have insulating properties. This means that if you fill your stainless steel bottle with cold water first thing in the morning, it will stay cool for much longer throughout the day compared to regular plastic bottles. The same goes for if you’re storing hot drinks in your bottle – they stay hot while you’re on the go.
Purchasing a reusable water bottle makes sense in so many ways, and your main options are plastic, glass, aluminum, or stainless steel. While stainless steel might be slightly more expensive than other options, it certainly boasts a lot of benefits, both to you and the environment.
