We can all agree that bottled water is the right choice for us, but all bottled water is not the same. Some manufacturers use toxic plastic to produce the bottles. That’s why picking the right bottle of water is actually a very hard process.
In order to check if the plastic is toxin-free, you should check the bottom of the bottle. The manufacturers of the bottle are obliged to label the content of the plastic bottle. So, if you turn the bottle upside down you will be able to see PP, HDP and HDPE, engraved on the bottom of the container.
Those letters reveal us that the plastic used for the production of the bottles is not toxic. If there are any other letters than these, it means that the plastic is toxic. When the bottle is made of toxic plastic, the water inside is contaminated.
This is a toxic plastic. It leaches chemicals and heavy metals that will disrupt the hormonal balance in your body.

Don’t drink the water if you see these letters on your bottle. They show you that it contains 2 toxins that will cause hormonal imbalances in your body.
