Question: What's the deal with plastic water bottles?
I heard that plastic bottles give off chemicals? If its true please tell me about it?


Yes, all forms of plastic have chemicals. Plastic is a by product of petroleum and so it has chemicals. It not too dangerous but if you leave things in a bottle for a long time and you have a chemist conduct a test on your body he will find traces of that chemical in your body. Best is just to stick to glass containers or glass bottles. Or just carry around your own container. I am not too worried because I live in a city and just breathing in the air has chemicals. We have chemicals that are bad for us all around.

when it's hot, the plastic melts, giving off fumes.
When you toss that bottle away, it goes into the sea.

BAN plastic bottles and ALL usage of them.
