A sustainable water bottle is the ideal way to take your own tap water with you. And that's great, because tap water is cheap and Dutch tap water is really healthy. Also, glass water bottles and stainless steel water bottles do not contain harmful substances that end up in your drink plus it saves a lot of plastic waste. Finally, a reusable water bottle is way more stylish than a plastic one!
Why is a reusable water bottle healthier than plastic bottles?
The reusable water bottles you find at Zo Zero are all BPA-free. PET bottles do contain BPA (Bisphenol A), a chemical that is harmful to the liver, kidneys and fertility. For this reason, a maximum allowable amount of BPA per body weight has been set at the European level. But we would prefer not to have any BPA in our bodies at all, which is why we choose a glass drinking bottle or a stainless steel drinking bottle without BPA.
The Neon Kactus water bottle is a glass water bottle with a bamboo cap silicone sleeve. The glass water bottles are made of high-quality borosilicate glass, which is much less permeable than plastic, which means the reusable water bottles do not absorb flavours, odours or germs. And the food grade silicone sleeve makes the glass water bottle easy to hold and extra protected.
Klean Kanteen's stainless steel drinking bottles have a bamboo cap, and a food grade silicone ring and are 100% plastic-free. The stainless steel drinking bottle is available in both a single-walled version and a double-walled thermos. The insulated drinking bottle keeps contents ice cold for up to 24 hours and cold for up to 40 hours.

Why is my sustainable water bottle produced in China?
We prefer to sell products that are produced locally as much as possible. However, almost all stainless steel products are made in Asia (India & China). But produced in China does not automatically mean bad production. Take for example the stainless steel drinking bottles from Klean Kanteen, these are produced responsibly in China.
The manufacturers that produce Klean Kanteen bottles and the stainless steel supplier have several certifications for quality management systems and environmental management systems established by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). In addition, Klean Kanteen works with its manufacturing partners and supply chain experts to ensure that working conditions in factories where Klean water bottles are made comply with recognized standards such as the ETI Base Code and ILO International Labor Standards for safety, fair labor, ethical business practices and environmental responsibility.
