BPA or Bisphenol A is used primarily to make plastics, and products containing Bisphenol A-based plastics have been in use for more than 50 years.

Originally the USA’s Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said BPA was safe. Since then, however, the FDA has acknowledged concerns about the potential effects of BPA on the brain. In fact, the National Toxicology Program warns that BPA may cause babies to develop abnormally and the Canadian government has gone so far as to ban it in baby bottles as well as listing it as a toxic substance.  The debate rages on though with pro BPA groups claiming that the low doses received from the likes of drinking bottles is not enough to effect a human beings health.  Who to believe?

Luckily… BPA is not contained in any part of Water in a Box, unlike some other ‘top’ products we’d like to mention.  I mean seriously, why even take the chance??  We can proudly claim that we have been BPA FREE since we started and will remain that way.  So not only are we a great environmentally friendly alternative to all those plastic water bottles, but we are also completely risk free to you and your families health.  Whew!

So go grab that Box and be safe in the knowledge that not only are you doing the best by your planet, but you are definitely doing the best by you…  Cheers!

    ” Who to believe? ” … not the pro BPA groups, thats for sure. :)
    Good to see some companies taking a stand on this finally.
    Increased breast cancer in women and sterility in males is not worth taking a chance on, if you ask me.

    cheers

    Good to see you have a comments section also- shows an openness. BUt I have a question- I cut open the silver bag the other day to take a look and the inside is lined with pastic. Given most if not all plastics are made with BPA’s- can you please provide more info on why the plastic you use on the inside of your bags is BPA free??
