Safety is a key ingredient in TritanTM from Eastman

Tritan is used in thousands of food contact products around the world, including water bottles, blenders and food storage containers. Tritan is a fundamentally different type of plastic than those that contain BPA, such as polycarbonate. Tritan is not only BPA-free but also free of bisphenol S and any other bisphenol compounds, as proven by third-party labs.
