Nalgene Stops Manufacturing Bottles with BPA
The famed Nalgene company is responding to consumer concerns about unsafe plastics and phasing out production of bottles containing the chemical Bisphenol-A (BPA). This is occurring the next several months and Nalgene is now offering a new line of bottles without BPA. They say they believe their bottles are safe, but are listening to consumer demands. They provide a page in their website with information on BPA: BPA Info
The new "Everyday" line is available in stores and will soon be available online. The Everyday line is made with Eastman's Tritan copolyester that upholds Nalgene's trademarked shatter-proof reputation. Some other bottles are also BPA-free.
