To make this bottle what it is, it was impossible to avoid the use of plastic. That said, we're proud to use plastic that is BPA-free and dishwasher safe.
The bottom and nut are made from plastic that can be easily recycled and turned into other products. Although we hope you keep your bamboo bottle forever, we are proud to declare that our plastics are recyclable. They are BPA-free and are made from food-grade materials making the cap, bottom and nut a safe and efficient way to hold your bamboo bottle together.
Using plastics is obviously not ideal, but we are motivated to develop and evolve the bamboo bottle to be eventually plastic free. We are striving to do our part to not only make better bottles, but to also protect Mother Earth.
