THERMOS® BPA-FREE BEVERAGE BOTTLES PROVIDE FAMILIES OPTIONS FOR DRINKING WATER ON THE GO
Stainless steel products recommended for consumers looking for alternatives

ROLLING MEADOWS, Ill. (April 16, 2008) – Recent media reports on the chemical compound Bisphenol A (BPA) have caused many consumers – especially parents – to question what safe alternatives exist to commonly used (and reused) bottles containing BPA. BPA can be found in many reusable polycarbonate sports bottles, baby bottles and children’s drinking cups.

As the leading manufacturer of convenient insulated products for over 100 years, Thermos is trusted by consumers to provide innovative beverage bottles and food containers that promote a safe and healthy lifestyle. Non-toxic stainless steel beverage bottles are a healthy BPA-free option, and Thermos offers portable options appropriate for every age.

“We know there’s nothing more important to parents than their family’s health and safety,” said Rick Dias, Executive Vice President of Marketing and Sales at Thermos. “We’re committed to providing convenient BPA-free products to give them peace of mind.”

One of the first BPA-free items in the toddler category, the Thermos® Foogo™ line of stainless steel products offers a BPA-free food jar, hydration bottle and a sippy cup that will keep beverages cold for up to 6 hours.

The Thermos FUNtainer™ straw bottle, complete with a push-button flip lid, is a fun and BPA-free way to keep kids hydrated. The kid-friendly bottles are decorated with over 25 popular character designs ranging from Hannah Montana to Speed Racer.

Adults can also turn to Thermos for BPA-free stainless steel bottles. Thermos brand hydration bottles keep drinks cold for up to 12 hours, and the sleek designs are conducive to a busy lifestyle – fitting easily into backpacks or car cup holders.

In addition to providing a safe and convenient alternative to bottles containing BPA for children and adults alike, stainless steel containers from Thermos use patented TherMax® vacuum technology to provide a superior level of insulation, cutting the risk of foodborne illness in beverages left unrefrigerated due to busy lifestyles.

BPA Free Why it matters

Bisphenol A

Bisphenol A (BPA) is a controversial chemical that can be found in the lining of food cans, certain water bottles and more. Some researchers have linked the hormone-mimicking chemical to a host of issues including behavioral and developmental effects in kids. Thermos plays it safe, and has made a commitment to only manufacture products that are BPA-free.
