What is Bisphenol A (BPA)?
Food safe plastics by nature are soft materials (recycling codes #1 PET, #2 HDPE, #4 LDPE and #5 PP) Therefore to make a durable drinking bottle Polycarbonate (#7 PC) is used as it is considered virtually shatterproof. What makes Polycarbonate so strong is a plasticiser commonly called BPA which also makes it easy to mould. An environmental oestrogen, also known as an endocrine disrupter is of growing worldwide concern. Studies have linked low-dose BPA exposure with such effects as: permanent changes to genital tract, an increased prostate weight, decline in testosterone, breast cells predisposed to cancer, prostate cells more sensitive to hormones and cancer, and hyperactivity.
Are Onya rPET products BPA Free?
Yes, All rPET products Onta produces are made from non-toxic, chlorine free, BPA Free food safe 100% recycled plastic drink bottles (rPET). rPET (which stands for “recycled P.E.T”) is a process of recycling BPA Free plastic drink bottles. The rPET Onya uses is made via a mechanical process not a chemical one and it uses around 30% of the energy it takes to produce virgin Polyester. It also produces less Co2 than the production of conventional Cotton and Polyester. The reason Onya has chosen to use rPET is because their goal is to remove single use plastic like disposable drink bottles from the environment. What we really want is for single use plastic products not to exist in the first place, but since this goal is a long way off, we are doing our best to divert single use plastic from landfill and our oceans by using rPET.
