Do you use rPET (recycled PET plastic) in your bottles?
Our rPET bottles are made from recycled PET plastic that is carefully collected, screened and sorted to keep other types of plastics from entering the rPET manufacturing process. Given the nature and variability of the recycling streams, however, the rPET bottles may not be absolutely free of other types of plastic 100% of the time. Product testing clearly shows that only a very small fraction of rPET bottles may have trace levels of other types of plastics and that any unlikely detection of BPA from those other plastics would be at trace levels in the low parts per trillion range. For this reason, we consider the resource® 100% rPET bottles virtually BPA free.
In the fall of 2014, FDA completed a four-year review of more than 300 scientific studies and in December, 2014 concluded that "Based on FDA's ongoing safety review of scientific evidence, the available information continues to support the safety of BPA for the currently approved uses in food containers and packaging.”
