  Eastman is serious about plastic safety

It’s natural for consumers like you to be concerned about plastic safety and the products you and your family use every day. With so much conflicting information circulating in the media and concerns about plastics found on social media, how do you know what to believe? Eastman is committed to providing credible, scientific information that supports the safety of its products — including Tritan™ plastic.

Sharing your concerns about plastics

Tritan plastic is used in hundreds of food contact products around the world, including water bottles, blenders and food storage containers. To ensure the safety of Tritan and address concerns about plastic, Eastman conducted extensive testing over many years using well-recognized scientific methods. Accredited universities and independent third-party labs tested Tritan, and the results overwhelmingly demonstrate that it is safe and, in separate studies, free of bisphenol A (BPA) and bisphenol S (BPS). Tritan plastic also is free of estrogenic activity (EA) and androgenic activity (AA).

Plastic Safety FAQs

We understand that there might be some confusion as to the safety of plastics claiming to be BPA-free. To set the record straight, Tritan is not only BPA-free, but it is not manufactured with bisphenol-S or any other bisphenol compounds. In addition, third-party labs have tested Tritan and the results have demonstrated that it is free of estrogenic and androgenic activity.
