I want to eliminate drinking water from water bottles because of the BPA and xenoestrogen leakage. What are some alternatives? I heard of getting an RO filter but I move around a lot. Maybe a water dispenser?
I have a couple Kleen Kanteens (stainless steel) -- one in my office, another for car and home.
There are water bottles with built-in filters, too, if you're concerned about drinking unfiltered tap water and don't have access to clean water wherewith to refill a stainless bottle regularly.
These are well worth the money and never get any sort of funky smell or taste as long they are periodically left to airdry. Occasionally, I will rinse mine out with warm water and a splash of white vinegar. Plus they are super durable; even after being dropped on pavement several times, mine barely has a dent.
You know you can buy BPA free bottles right? I suppose you mean bottled water that you buy, not just the bottles though right? Well I want to get one of those water filter things as well, but not sure if those would be "BPA Free". I want to get that Zero water filter.
Sorry to get political but I just wanted to point out that KK and most other bottle makers import from China. Sigg makes a great bottle and most are Swiss made. I recently made this move but chose American made bpa free Nalgene. I still use tap though. I think there's a lot of hype about purified water. JMHO.
I drink tap water and put it in reused glass jars around the house. Kombucha comes in those nice glass bottles that I reuse for taking around. I have a green bottle that's steel but I barely ever use it. I haven't had a glass bottle break on me yet either.
