Q. What is 18/8 (or 304) stainless steel?
A. 18/8 (also called 304) stainless steel is food-grade stainless steel, the highest quality stainless steel available for creating lightweight, durable, made-to-last, non-reactive reusable bottles. Stainless steel is naturally BPA free, as it does not require any inner liner (where BPA is normally found). You can safely use stainless steel with any type of beverage, including hot or cold drinks.
Q. Is the glass used in your bottles lead and cadmium free?
A. Yes, our glass bottles are tested for heavy metals and certified to be free of metals/foreign substances. We use borosilicate glass for almost all of our glass bottles, which is an especially durable and temperature resistant type of glass. Glass is completely non-reactive, does not have any risk of leaching, and is revered for "purity of taste" - that is, your liquid will remain exactly the same as it was when it entered the bottle. All bottles are Certified FDA and CE (Compliant with US and European Union Standards), CQI, LFGB, and SGS.
Q. Can I use a glass bottle for sporting usage?
A. Yes! We offer certain glass bottles made from resistant borosilicate glass with a silicone sleeve that are suitable for outdoor/sports usage.
Q. Are your bottles BPA free?
A. We do not ever use polycarbonate plastic or plastic liners in our products where BPA is found - therefore all of our bottles are BPA free.

Q. Where are your bottles made?
A. Our bottles are made in China by manufacturers with whom we have a close relationship, who hold themselves to extremely high quality standards for their production methods. Our manufacturers are small companies that ensure that their employees are paid fairly and that their products are made with eco-friendly materials with attention to quality and detail.
Q. Can I put my bottle in the dishwasher?
A. We recommend hand-washing our all of bottles with warm soapy water and allowing them to air-dry to best uphold the quality and lifespan of the bottle. Double-walled thermal insulated bottles should never be placed in the dishwasher, as this will destroy the bottle's thermal capacity.
Q. Are your bottles insulated?
A. We offer a selection of insulated stainless steel bottles, of both single-wall and double-wall insulation varieties. These can be found in our thermal, tea, and stainless steel collections.
Q. Can I put my bottle in the refrigerator or freezer?
A. You can put any of our bottles in the refrigerator, however we recommend against putting our bottles in the freezer (unless only for a very short period of time). When water freezes, the molecules expand, which could cause rupturing, malformation, and breaking of any reusable bottle. Double-walled insulated bottles should never be put in the freezer for any reason, as this can cause harm to the insulation capacity of the bottle.
