Nalgene has announced that they are phasing out production of bottles with BPA, that nasty chemical in polycarbonate bottles that wreaks havoc with our hormones and lots of other things.
I am not sure why they’re not just STOPPING production, but they didn’t ask my opinion.
The new bottles are manufactured with Eastman’s Tritan copolyester. They are already available in stores and will be available online next month.
Now, if you go to the Camelbak website, they have a big logo that says BPA free. I don’t know if that means they always were, or are now.
I am VERY happy to hear this information. I haven’t found a stainless steel reusable bottle that I like, and that the dishwasher will wash properly. I can’t wait to get these to replace our current Nalgene collection.
Just wish I didn’t have to throw these away. Anyone have any ideas on what to do with old Nalgene bottles rather than drink from them?
Canadian Health Minister banned baby bottles made with BPA yesterday in Canada.
That’s fantastic! Go Canada!!!
You could use them as a planter or vase. Storage container for change, nails, screws, rubber bands, (etc…). Other people have said would could put holes in the red ones and use it as a humming bird feeder! they could also be used as a light (google it). But I’m still looking for other ideas!
Instead of using your Nalgene to scramble your reproductive material, you’re going to use it to scamble that of hummingbirds. Fantastic!
