THE ULTIMATE WATER SOLUTIONS FOR RESIDENTIAL, OFFICE & COMMERCIAL NEEDS
Glass for Storage for Safety ReasonsForever Healthy
- Glass is the safest container to store water in because it is inert and does not have the harmful chemicals that can leach from certain plastics and metals coated with liners. With some plastics, Bisphenol A acts as a hormone altering xenoestrogen, which seriously negatively affect humans and other living creatures. That means it's like the female hormone estrogen, except for two things: 1) it's foreign to our bodies, which is what "xeno" means, and 2) it is more harmful than our natural estrogen for both males and females. Also, fine little scratches can increase the surface area of contact and leach Bisphenol A.
- Glass is preferred over stainless steel containers, because metals alter and interfere with the electrical conductivity and balance of our "2 Pure H2O" Vita Tech Water System's Triple Purified, Energized, Restructured, Living, Alkaline Water thereby negating its energized water benefits.
- Glass is excellent for sun-charging water for extra solar nutrition due to its full spectrum light benefits. Our personal recommendation is to never use plastics to store water because they leach, even at room temperature, and especially above 95F/35C, such as in a warm window.
Can Water Go Bad?

Glass Is One of the Best Alternatives
[Excerpt] In 2010, Canada declared BPA as a toxic substance, and BPA has been banned in baby bottles in both Europe and the US. It's still permitted in plastic water bottles and other plastic food containers, however. One 2011 study4 also discovered that most plastic products leach endocrine-disrupting chemicals even if they're labeled "BPA-free."
Seventy percent of common plastic products actually tested positive for estrogenic activity, and that number rose to 95 percent when the products were subject to real-world conditions such as dishwashing or microwaving.
Heat and sunlight can also accelerate the breakdown of the plastic, so avoid drinking from bottles that have languished for some time in the back of your car, for example.
To avoid chemical toxins leaching into your water, choose glass over plastic. While this article is focused on water, this advice applies to canned goods as well, which are a major source of BPA exposure, so whenever you can, choose jarred goods over canned goods, or opt for fresh instead.
Store Your Food in Glass Not Plastic
By Dr. Joseph Mercola, April 16 2003
[Excerpt] Environmental exposure to a widespread compound used to make common plastic food containers and baby bottles and to line tin cans interferes with cell division in the eggs of female mice, according to research.
If cell division is disturbed, it can result in aneuploidy, or an abnormal number of chromosomes in the eggs. This condition is the leading cause of mental retardation and birth defects in humans, including Down syndrome.
Even extremely low levels of the compound, called Bisphenol A (BPA), produced genetic abnormalities, according to researchers. BPA exhibits hormone-like properties and imitates the effects of naturally occurring estrogens.
