When it comes to buying a water bottle there are so many options available. You can choose from various sizes, designs, shapes and materials. Probably the most important choice though is the material that your bottle is made from. Here at Evachill, one of our major choices in the design process was to make our bottles from 18/8 stainless steel. Let’s look at all of the reasons why stainless steel bottles are so much better than plastic bottles.
1. Stainless steel bottles are completely BPA-free
We’ve recently posted about what BPA is and why BPA is bad for you. In short, BPA is a chemical that’s often used to make plastic bottles. This chemical can then mix with the liquids inside the plastic bottle and enter your body when you drink from it. BPA then causes a whole load of health issues including effecting fertility and babies, mimicking hormones, increasing the risk of obesity, heart disease and type 2 diabetes.
Basically BPA is bad and should be avoided wherever possible. Our stainless steel water bottles are completely 100% BPA-free so you will never introduce BPA or any other toxins into your body.
2. Stainless steel bottles are much more durable
Plastic water bottles are flimsy to say the least. They’re made really for 1-time use and often end up easily crushed. Stainless steel bottles, on the other hand, are built to last. They can be used under almost any condition and can withstand the elements. That’s why you’ll see athletes, adventurers, and even mothers of playful children choosing stainless steel bottles over plastic bottles.
3. Stainless steel bottles are reusable
Stainless steel bottles are made to be reusable bottles. Reusable bottles are better for your health, your bank balance and the environment. We wrote about all of the reasons why you should own a reusable water bottle so you can read more in-depth about why they’re useful.
4. Stainless steel bottles are definitely better looking
Let’s be honest, no one’s rushing out to buy a plastic bottle because it looks nice. If you’re going to invest in a reusable bottle that’ll last you a few years it’s pretty crucial that it looks the part. Our 750ml Evachill original bottle has been designed to look great. Its white exterior and silver logo means it’ll go with everything and it’ll be a bottle you’ll actually want to carry with you. Infact, we have a whole Instagram page showing how the Evachill stainless steel bottle fits into your life.
5. Stainless steel bottle can keep your drinks cold (or hot)
Warm water or warm wine on a hot day is frankly upsetting. Luckily stainless steel has the ability to solve this problem. Our Evachill stainless steel bottles keep drinks cold all day (for up to a massive 24 hours!) and because they’re double walled you can rest assured that warm wine is a thing of the past.
Did we also mention that it can keep your drinks hot? Because what’s more useful that a bottle that can do both.
6. Stainless steel bottles last longer
The average lifespan of a plastic bottle is a few days, maybe a few weeks at a push. The average lifespan of a stainless steel bottles is a few years, and in some cases over a decade. That sounds like a pretty good deal to us!
If the time comes where you wish to buy a new stainless steel bottle, you have the option to recycle your old one. Whilst, certain plastic bottles can also be recycled, creating and recycling plastic is often much more harmful to the environment than the production and recycling of stainless steel.
