Vert It's Not a Bottle It's A Lifestyle


Why steel is better then the rest?

Glass is a clean, healthy way to store and drink liquids. Unfortunately, it is very heavy and breaks very easily. Plastic is convenient, lightweight and durable. However, it is not biodegradable, filling our landfills and oceans at an dangerous rate which jeopardizes the health of our planet. Plastic also contains BPA (Bisphenol-A), a harmful chemical that leaches into your drink and can be detrimental to your health (see "What is BPA?" for more). Aluminum, one of the most popular materials used to store liquids (i.e., soda, energy drinks, canned food etc.), can corrode over time and is known to emit toxins when heated or in contact with anything acidic. Stainless Steel is by far the best material used today. Pound-for-pound, it is the strongest and most lightweight on the market. It's the safest material because it does not contain any harmful chemicals or toxins. Even the pots and pans we use to cook are made of this material. It's 100% recyclable, and is extremely easy to clean.

What is BPA?

BPA, also known as Bisphenol-A, is a chemical used in plastic food and drink containers, as well as the resin linings of cans. Studies have shown that this chemical can seep into the food or liquid and be ingested. Other metal water bottles (excluding stainless steel) may contain this harmful compound as well. It has caused significant health problems in animal trials and researchers are concerned of the health effects they pose to people. While the FDA says that current levels of exposure to BPA may not pose an immediate health risk, the FDA does admit that more research is needed to fully understand the impact of the chemical. Why risk it? You decide.

What is all this fuss about 18/8 stainless steel?

It's simpler than it sounds. 18/8 stainless steel is an alloy made of a variety of different metals. The fraction 18/8 represents the ratio of chromium (18%) to nickel (8%). The amount of chromium in the steel affects the hardness and the amount of nickel affects its strength. This combination forms a very strong alloy that is highly-resistant to both stain and rust. This is one of the reasons why most cookware and cutlery is made from this grade of steel.
