Smartbottle™ is a wonderful example of applying “reuse” as a sustainable environmental strategy, as it can be cleaned and reused countless times. It is not wasteful or harmful to the environment. If disposed, it can be recycled and reused in many industrial and commercial applications like car parts, shampoo bottles and food storage containers.
Why does Smartbottle™ look like a disposable bottle?
The fact that Smartbottle™ looks like a disposable bottle makes it familiar and easy to use. Other reusable bottles are either made of polycarbonate, which is not BPA-free, or metal. Metal bottles can be difficult to adjust to and may not be as comfortable to use. Just remember--Smartbottle™is REUSABLE and DO NOT throw it away!
Can Smartbottle™ go in the recycle bin?
Most municipalities accept #5 as in restaurant takout containers. There are many recycling applications for #5 (polypropylene).
Can Smartbottle™ that is filled with water be left in the car?
Disposable PET bottles filled with water should not be left in the car as there is a risk of acetaldehydes from the PET leaching into the water. This process is accelerated by the hot temperatures that would be in the car from the greenhouse effect of the glass windows. Smartbottle™ is a polyolefin and is not part of the family of PET throwaway/single-use bottles and there are no acetaldehydes in the chemistry of polyolefin.
How does Smartbottle™ compare to metal refillable bottles?
Smartbottle™ is clear and you can see what is inside the bottle at all times. Metal bottles are not clear.
Smartbottle™ does not impart a metallic taste which happens with metal bottles.
Smartbottle™ is a fraction of the weight and cost of a metal bottle.
