- Avoid all plastic bottles, especially for babies and children.
- Canada is the first country in the world to take action on Bisphenol A.
- In April 2008, Health Canada concluded that, while adverse health effects were not expected, the margin of safety was too small for formula-fed infants and proposed classifying the chemical as ''toxic' to human health and the environment.
After the release of that assessment, then Canadian Health Minister Tony Clement
announced Canada's intent to ban the import, sale, and advertisement of
polycarbonate baby bottles containing Bisphenol A due to safety
concerns, and investigate ways to reduce BPA contamination of baby
formula packaged in metal cans.
- On January 15,
2010, the FDA in the USA issued an interim update on BPA.
- Environment Canada listed Bisphenol A as a "toxic substance" in September 2010.
"Bisphenol A (BPA) is an industrial chemical used to make a hard, clear
plastic known as polycarbonate, which is used in many consumer products,

metal-based food and beverage cans."

The Water Privatization Task Force (WPTF)
The Water Privatization Task Force (WPTF) is a volunteer-based subcommittee of the Sierra Club's Corporate Accountability Committee created to educate Club members and the general public about corporate privatization of water/sewer services and threatened commodification of water itself.
The WPTF works to support Sierra Club (SC-US) and Sierra Club of Canada (SCC) groups and chapters confronted with corporate takeovers of their municipal systems or with loss of water resources due to over-pumping for bottled water or bulk water withdrawals. The WPTF has also initiated a national volunteer campaign to drastically reduce the purchase of bottled water.
