Plastic Bottles: The Latest News

In recent years, Canadians are growing increasingly concerned about drinking and eating from plastic containers. This includes containers made with bisphenol A (BPA), a synthetic chemical compound used in hard polycarbonate plastic containers. This compound mimics the effect of estrogen in the body, particularly in babies and young children.

Most bottled water comes in bottles marked with the symbol #1. This indicates that it’s made from polyethylene terephthalate (PET, PETE), which is recognized as a safe plastic and contains no BPA. At Eska, we only use PETE #1, which you can find at the bottom of any Eska bottle.
