Looking for a (cheap/okay price) high quality reusable 1L water bottle.

As above. Apparently lots of bottles are made of polycarbonates which leaks estrogen into the water, promoting cancer. Thanks!

why not get a small steel flask?

still pretty light plus your water will stay a lot cooler

they're only a couple of quid or so in Asda (well - maybe a fiver) but very very durable

I would say you dont have much to worry about. plastic bottles marked as 'microwave safe' do not contain the plathates that cause the enzyme bleeding. But the US and UK market have since stop manufacturing bottles of this type.

I read an article about it from an american issue of runners world and it gave you a run down on the different markings on plastic bottles. If my scanner was working I would scan the article


Flip over a bottle, and you'll see a number. Plastics are classified as 1 to 7. Polycarbonate bottles are 7s but so are bottles that dont contain BPA. The ones some experts advise avoiding have a PC and a 7 on the bottle

[1] PETE - safe for one time use
[2] HDPE - considered safe
[3] LDPE - considered safe
[7] BPA-FREE - considered safe
[7] POLYCARBONATE - some experts say throw away


The above is directly taken from runners world october 2008 issue
