BPA-Free Plastic Risks
While many bottle manufacturers offer BPA-free claims, mounting scientific studies show that BPS, its replacement, is linked to endocrine disruption and potentially just as toxic as BPA. Plastics can also contain phthalates, a class of chemicals used to soften plastics that’s been linked to hormone disruption and reproductive harm.
Don’t be fooled by manufacturers who:
- Do not specify their components or hide behind glorified names for plastic. PP#5 or polypropolene is plastic, Tritan ® is plastic, etc.
- Paint their plastic silver to look like steel – just because it is silver does NOT mean it is steel.
- Incorporate a steel shell that surrounds a plastic plug lid – but your beverage is still in contact with plastic.
But with scant legislation, little to no regulation around chemicals in commerce, and undislosed ingredients, it’s nearly impossible for consumers to ascertain whether or not a product may cause harm to their families. What's worse, consumers are forced to navigate a sea of greenwashing with meaningless claims like "green" or "eco". While some turn to single-chemical claims like "BPA-free" or "phthalate-free", no single trusted protocol has existed to signal consumers that products are truly free from chemicals that can harm their health. Fortunately, that has now changed.
Pura is the only 100% plastic-free feeding system on the global market, and it is the only bottle on the global market to be NON-TOXIC CERTIFIED.
Made of solely of food-grade stainless steel (without an internal liner) and medical grade silicone, all components of Pura bottles have been deemed safe for human health by the independent testing agency MadeSafe. Pura products are backed by a myriad of patents around the world.
