I have a nasty habit of leaving a plastic bottle of water in my car during warm weather, and then without thinking, I drink from the bottle the next day. or the next week… I’m notorious about not thinking about this.
My friends tell me that the plastic bottles, when warm and mushy, leech nasty chemicals (BPA and DEHA – a probable human carcinogen when in less than perfect condition.) Well! Who knew! I try to only use perfect plastic bottles, but obviously leaving a perfect plastic bottle all day in a hot car leads to an imperfect container and a likely center of distructive toxins for me if I dare to sip the contained liquid!!!
So. Beware and be smart all you plastic bottle sippers who use less than perfect bottles for summer refreshment. Dump the buggers and get another container made of some other materials.
Check out REI.com (http://goo.gl/4ijDc) to find a bunch of good water bottles that won’t kill you on the spot. Worth a look. 🙂
Other happenings: I’m presently visiting friends in Maine, playing a fabu game of golf at the local executive par 3 course, eating, drinking and hitting the beach for the afternoon. Tonight, more friends are gathering for a party. And in the meantime, I’m sipping water from a disposable, perfect and safe plastic cup. Chow!
