BPA free is irrelevant to most plastics
The hysteria over BPA and greenwashing about BPA free is getting absurd.
The criteria for exposure studies is not unanimous.
It's as ridiculous as touting your Scotch as having no agave residue. The greenwashing sin here is irrelevance. The number of BPA free claims in the last 3 years is up literally over 2500% because it is so easy.
The essensce of the fine art of greenwashing is doing exactly what you have always done and touting it as "green". Like putting a nice fresh coat of paint on the outhouse.
We just wrote the 29th letter certifying our plastic films do not contain bisphenol A, or BPA for short.
Eternal water touts their "biobottle" as BPA free and 100% recyclable - a shameless marketing spin which takes advantage of the public's lack of information. Why stop there ? Let's tell the public more truths. Our fair trade BPA free plastic containers are gluten-free, trans fat free, no cholesterol and were developed without animal testing.
If the conclusive incontrovertible harmful threshholds ( not just for endocrine disruption ) for BPA accumulations exist, I haven't found them. One can make a case for either side of the issue. The NRDC wants a ban, the National Institue of Health has "some concern" while the EPA says BPA does not pose a health concern.
Either way the only polymers which incorporate BPA as a monomer which is mostly transformed in a chemical reaction are poly vinyl chloride ( PVC ) or polycarbonate ( PC ) or epoxy. These applications account for about 95% of the 8 billion pounds of BPA used worldwide annually.
We are exposed daily to dermal contact with BPA in thermal paper ( cash register reciepts ) but are apparently unconcerned.
