Comments

While it is commendable that Nalgene is going to stop production of #7 polycarbonate bottles, one could also argue that they should have done it ages ago, and are only now moving forward because the market for these bottles has dropped and will continue to drop. Many ethical merchants have removed these bottles from their shelves, but many more are suddenly having "sales" and one needs to check carefully what they are buying as the industry tries to dump its stock of these bottles.
