Bottles can be made entirely from recycled glass or plastic. It is also possible to use plastic synthesized from agricultural sources rather than petroleum, such as hemp or flax, although corn-based plastics are less sustainable due to the environmental degradation of the growing process.
and of course metal, especially recyclable aluminum (actually an alloy of aluminum with a little magnesium).
The most common materials for reusable water bottles are copolyester, high-density polyethylene (HDPE), stainless steel, and aluminum. After the existence of a chemical called Bisphenol A (BPA), used in plastic drink bottles, raised health concerns, most drink bottles are now manufactured without BPA. Copolyester and HDPE are both durable, hard plastic materials, commonly found in bottles suitable for hiking and camping. Stainless steel is very durable, but heavier than other materials. Aluminum, used by Swiss manufacturer SIGG, is lightweight and durable, making it another popular choice for outdoor activities.
