Miami, Florida (PRWEB) February 25, 2009
In light of recent evidence that many water bottles leach Bisphenol A - a potentially dangerous chemical - Discountmugs.com has refined its product inventory to include only BPA-free water bottles. Discountmugs.com is the Internet's leading provider of custom-printed products, including water bottles, ceramic mugs, travel mugs, and glassware.
Many hard plastic water bottles, such as Nalgene bottles, are made of a polycarbonate that has been shown to leak Bisphenol A - a chemical that has similar effects of estrogen. According to recent studies, this chemical is linked to breast cancer, early puberty, and has negative effects on babies. Consumers can determine whether their water bottles are made of this polycarbonate by checking for the #7 symbol on the bottom of the container.
"We've been learning a lot more lately about the materials that are used to make some of the most popular consumer products, like these water bottles," said Amin Rahman, CEO of Discountmugs.com. "What we're finding is that some materials are unhealthy and potentially unsafe for consumers, especially babies. We know that drinking water is good for the human body, and drinking water from reusable water bottles is good for the environment. But instead of drinking water from unsafe water bottles, it's important for consumers to be able to easily get their hands on water bottles that are made from safer materials, such as aluminum and steel."
Rahman's company specializes in providing a wide variety of products that can be personalized for businesses or private use. "We're constantly looking for new products to reinvigorate our water bottle line-up," said Rahman. "Currently, we have more than 30 different types of customizable water bottles, including steel, aluminum, polycarbonate, and polyethylene options." The Discountmugs.com options also include a wide variety of colors and shapes to meet the needs of each customer.
