At Rive, we are as particular about what goes into our bottles as you are about what goes into your body. That’s why we’ve designed our glass water bottles using only the safest, highest quality materials. Like glass.
Glass is completely non-toxic and doesn’t leach, so it’s BPA-free! As a result, you can be certain that your beverage will be just as pure coming out of your bottle as it was when you put it into your bottle. No chemicals. No contaminants. No peculiar taste. No wonder that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration classifies glass as the safest packaging material available.
BPA behaves like the hormone estrogen once it enters the body and disturbs the normal working of certain genes. Estrogen mimicking chemicals like BPA are potentially harmful even at very low doses.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) calculated that people consume 50 micrograms of BPA per kilogram of body weight every day over the course of a lifetime.
In 2008, Canada added BPA to its list of toxic substances and plans are to ban BPA from all baby bottles.
