For ten BPA free years, Biome has led the way offering Australians choices that are BPA free and free from all other toxins like lead, PVC and phalates. It is a choice we made long ago because we believe in a toxic-free world, not because it is the latest 'hot seller'.
Since our store began we have sought out the safest, non-toxic products in the world. BPA-free, PVC free, lead free, free from everything harmful! Thank you for considering our BPA free bottles and other reusable products.
Which bottle is safest - with a Bisphenol A (BPA) free lining or stainless steel bottle without a lining?
Both bottle choices are safe. In both cases it is important to choose bottles from a trusted brand. We believe that Klean Kanteen and Nathan are manufactured to high and safe standards using only high-quality, sanitary grade 304 stainless steel with a low nickel content. Their bottles are tested to check for the presence of hazardous substances. SIGG bottles are aluminium with a BPA-free lining. The bottles are independently tested to show that no BPA or other toxins leach.
What is BPA?
Bisphenol A (BPA) is a plastic and resin ingredient used to line metal food and drink cans and to make hard and clear polycarbonate plastics. An Environmental Working Group study in 2007 which found BPA in over half of 97 cans of name-brand fruit, vegetables, soda, and other commonly eaten canned goods. BPA can leach into food from the protective internal lining of canned foods and from consumer products such as baby bottles and water bottles, polycarbonate tableware and food storage containers. The degree to which BPA leaches into liquid may depend on the temperature of the liquid or bottle and the age of the container. (Source: National Toxicology Program).
