Have You Read The Figures On The Plastic Water Bottle

"01" drink up and throw away

"01" stands for PET (polyethylene terephthalate) and is most commonly used in bottled drinks such as mineral water and carbonated beverages. What is best known is that the beverage bottle made from this material can not be filled with hot water. It is only suitable for warm drinking or cold drink, which can be easily deformed by hot liquid or heating, and can be dissolved into substances harmful to human body. 

Scientists also found that the plastic could release carcinogens after more than 10 months of use. So instead of being used as a water cup or a container for storage, you should throw out the drink bottles. In order to avoid harm to health, it is not worth the loss. 

"02" is not recommended as a water utensil 

"02" stands for HDPE (HDPE), plastic containers for cleaning products, bath products or plastic bags commonly used in shopping malls. Resistant to high temperature of 110 ℃, if the mark is used in the food can be used for holding food. Plastic containers for cleaning products and bath products can be reused after careful cleaning, but they often leave residue after being cleaned and left to become a breeding ground for germs. 

As mentioned in the post, different from other beverage bottles, the bottom of the 4L - loaded nongfu spring is labeled 02. Although it looks more secure than a regular mineral water bottle, it is not recommended to be used as a water utensil. The long-term use of harmful substances is highly likely. 

Don't let it get hot 

"03" stands for PVC (PVC) and is commonly found in raincoats and plastic films. Plastic products made of this material are liable to produce two toxic substances: one is a single molecule of vinyl chloride that is not fully polymerized in the production process, and the other is the harmful substance in plasticizer. These two substances are easy to precipitate out when they are in high temperature and grease. If they enter the body accidentally, it is easy to cause cancer. Therefore, it is rarely used for food packaging. If you happen to encounter it, don't let it get hot.
