What plastic has BPA?

We're supposed to avoid plastics #3 (PVC), #6 (polystyrene), and #7 (polycarbonate). Polycarbonate is the plastic that is made from the chemical Bisphenol-A (BPA). And BPA has a bad rap because it's a hormone-disruptor.

Is BPA free Tritan plastic safe?

Eastman Chemical went a step beyond calling Tritan plastic BPA-free, setting off a legal challenge. The new standard may be "EA-free," which means free of not only BPA, short for bisphenol A, but also free of other chemicals that mimic the hormone estrogen.

How do I know if BPA is in my plastic?

Use glass or unlined stainless steel water bottles. Keep plastic containers labeled with a 1, 2 or 5; they do not contain BPA or other plastic chemicals of concern. Dispose of plastic containers labeled with a 7 inside the recycle symbol.
