Staying hydrated is an essential part of healthy living; staying hydrated with those added chemicals found in your everyday plastic water bottle isn’t.
If you’re wondering what the concern is surrounding BPA or Bisphenol-A, it has to do with its status as an endocrine disruptor. That means BPA can mimic naturally occurring hormones in the body like estrogens, androgens, and thyroid hormones. This overstimulation of hormones “can decrease or increase normal hormone levels, or alter the natural production of hormones”, according to Niehs.
Though the FDA has said that BPA is safe at the very low levels, many consumers are choosing to limit their exposure while research on its effects continues. That means it’s probably best to avoid it in basic products like food storage containers, detergents, food, toys, cosmetics, and, you guessed it, plastic water bottles.
If you’re looking for some sleek, budget-friendly options, we’ve combed through Amazon to find the highest-rated BPA-free water bottles. Take a look below at 10 of the highest-rated BPA-free water bottles you can get on Amazon:

4 out of 5 stars"I recently stopped drinking pop and was going through insane amounts of bottled water every day. I did some research online about filtered water bottles and this kept coming up! I've had it for almost 2 weeks now and I really like it. Our city water doesn't taste very good and I am able to drink it all day with no problems. Haven't found anything wrong with it that would make me not buy another one." - Amazon Reviewer

It doesn’t leak at all. It has a lid that, when closed, seals the liquid in. The lid has a locking system that is really easy to use as well.
