Yea, sorry if I didn't delineate my criteria too much.
-Cheap water bottles (Aquafina, Gatorade, etc) leach phthalates over time (say that 3 times fast!). A phthalate is a chemical with a really weak covalent bond that breaks off of plastics over time through regular use, right into your water.
Here's more info:
Long story short, phthalates have been linked to breast cancer, endocrine disruption, and lots of other not-so-nice conditions. So, I'm happy to buy a soda and drink it, but I'm not going to re-use it for longer than a couple of days. The older your plastic bottles get, the higher your exposure is.
High-quality BPA-free plastics like those found in cycling bottles and Nalgenes don't leach as much, as fast. I still replace em every year or so, but I don't stress about it.
What's this mean for a hard-sided bottle?
It means I'm looking for something that isn't from the recycling bin. If the Fuji bottles are higher quality plastic (still investigating) they'll do.
After this thread, I need the tropical island effect. I feel like you guys are just getting on the anti-bottle-thread bandwagon at this point. Seriously, it is not that hard to ignore a thread and refrain from commenting uselessly... thank you!
