Another concern many people have with single-use plastic is the potential leaching of the synthetic chemical BPA (Bisphenol A) out of the single-use plastic water bottles and into our bodies. Much research is being conducted to work out how harmful BPA actually is. You can avoid the worry with a WFA water filter system.
