A reader asked me for some help choosing a water bottle because of concerns about antimony, bisphenol A, and phthalates (BPA is really the only risk worth thinking about in this trifecta). She read this NYTimes article about plastic bottles and risks,…etc. She was rather confused by the article. No doubt, it’s more stream of consciousness than helpfulness. So here’s your simple, practical advice, Amy:
Get this bottle.
It’s the HDPE or the #2 that you are looking for (the milky looking plastic). It’s cheap, reusable, sturdy, dishwasher safe, and people safe.
