The latest update on plastic

Canadians have become more and more concerned with drinking and eating from plastic containers, especially bisphenol A (BPA) a synthetic chemical compound used in hard polycarbonate plastic containers. This compound can mimic estrogen in the body, particularly in babies and young children.

Most bottled water comes in bottles with the symbol #1. This is polyethylene terephthalate (PET, PETE), which is a safe plastic, containing no BPA. We use only PETE#1 and you can check by looking on the bottom of any ESKA bottles.
