Over the years, plastic bottles have been getting a lot of bad rep. This was especially true when it was discovered that leaching chemicals can give a negative effect on the reproductive system in both humans and animals. Worried parents scurried to switch to BPA-free bottles(hyperlink to What’s the Fuss with BPA Free?), some even opting for glass and stainless steel options.
Although glass and stainless steel bottles are considered to be more eco-friendly, some are heavy, plus asking a child to use a glass bottle can be quite nerve-wrecking. Another downside to using stainless steel bottles is that while being super durable they are not transparent. As busy parents ourselves, surely we would like the ease of being able to see if our children’s bottles need topping up. How else would we know that they are getting enough fluid intake throughout the day?
Wouldn’t it be great if there was a product that didn’t contain any bisphenols at all? One which parents can use with a peace of mind, that is durable, with the see through clarity of glass yet shatterproof?
Yes, there is! Let me introduce you to the world of Tritan bottles!
First of all, what is Tritan?
Tritan is a durable, BPA-free plastic that does not contain BPA, BPS or any other bisphenols and chemicals with similar structures. The best part of all is that they remain as clear as glass even after years of use and repeated cycles in the dishwasher.
Remember the wear and tear from conventional plastic products? How they would turn dull, stained and get scratched over the years? Well, Tritan is here to replace all that because it has the appeal of glass without all that access weight. Let’s not forget about how much safer it would be to hand a Tritan bottle to a child due to its shatter resistance quality.
Children have been known to drag, bump and throw their bottles around like it is mere child’s play. However, extensive durability tests have been done to ensure that Tritan products can withstand more than the usual stresses of everyday life. So let’s just say the manufacturers are pretty confident that their products will survive your active trooper.
How do we know for sure that Tritan is safe?
Tritan™ is not only BPS-free, it is free of all bisphenols and chemicals with similar structures as BPA and BPS.
