Nalgene goes BPA free!

Hurray for progress! After the news broke that most plastic bottles (and tin cans lined with plastic) contain a chemical called Bisphenol-A, a substance known to mimic estrogen in the body and cause hormone disturbances, I was very upset. After all, how can you kick your bottled water addiction (bad for the environment and your wallet), if the alternatives (such as reusable polycarbonate bottles) can cause you health problems? Yesterday Nalgene announced it will phase-out Bisphenol-A in its products!
