Hmmm, my son is using a Gaiam water bottle for school.

We should probably switch to stainless steel, I suppose. If only we could find his missing Kleen Kanteen!

I still need to take our Siggs back, too.

We updated our story. Gaiam has changed their descriptions to indicate that their bottles do contain BPA. (And actually leach in higher amounts than the SIGG bottles.) You can find all the details on Z Recommends (I'd link but I'm not sure if that's okay with the UA or not.)

wonder why they changed their story so quick...maybe they want to try to avoid a lawsuit the the one facing SIGG

This is news to me. So I can't go get any old stainless steel water bottle from the store? What bottles are truly safe?

the ones with concern are not neccessarily the stainless steel ones....it is the ones that are aluminum with liners in them and the liners are what contain the BPA
