Laughter All The Way….

check them before reuse ——-> plastic bottles

Just got this forward from my friend:

As you know chemical released by plastic water bottles can cause cancer (It is not the water that affects you but the chemical released from the bottle)

How to avoid: Check the bottom of the bottle there should be a triangle sign and there will be a number on it. If the number is higher than or equal to 5

-> then this bottle is safe to use. Numbers under 5 will release the chemical. For most bottled water, the number is 1. Remember to check and stop reusing those bottles.

I checked this with Kinley 1 Lit bottle and the number is – 1 ( And there is a message printed to crush the bottle after use, which I ignored till date.) Kinley 25 Lit can has a number written – 7 ( This is reusable )

This is true with any food grade plastic item. Do check the triangle before you think of re-use.
