Thanks for getting out the work, Pat. I've bought a stainless steel
small thermos for my water. Not cheap but I hope it'll last a while, I
can put in the dishwasher, and it doesn't leach anything horrible!

Hello -- I reuse my water bottle and I CARE. I've also just written a
Letter from the Editor in our newsletter about this very issue. I may
resort
to a glass bottle.

I too am concerned about this issue and I am surprised how little
response
this generates on the GreenYes list serve.

This seems like it could be a significant public health issue. How many
people reuse plastic water bottles?
We're talking about phthalates leaching out of water bottles.
Phthalates
are a major reproductive toxin.

If it leaches on repeated use, has anyone tested if it leaches after
sitting
in a hot warehouse for a year?

Why does it seem that no one cares about this?

This article ran a while ago, had good info about the subject of reusing
water bottles. It made some of us rethink how long we want to hold on
to that little plastic bottle!
