Stainless steel is an iron-containing alloy made from some of the basic elements found on earth: iron ore, chromium, silicon, nickel, carbon, nitrogen and manganese. The properties of the final metal change depending on varying amounts of these elements. There are over 150 grades of stainless steel, of which 15 are most commonly used.
The stainless steel grade 18/8 stands for the percentages of chromium and nickel in the steel, 18% and 8% respectively. Chromium increases the metal's hardness and nickel gives it strength. Together they also make stainless steel highly resistant to stain or rust.
Stainless steel is easy to clean, durable, inert and sanitary. That's why it's the material of choice among the food, beer and wine industries.

The simple fact is that aluminium bottles are inferior to stainless for a variety of safety and reliability reasons. First, raw aluminium has been linked through many studies to Alzheimer's Disease, requiring such bottles to use a protective inner coating or lining. Aluminium bottle manufacturers use an oven enamel to coat their bottles to prevent the aluminium from leaching. While these linings appear to be reliable, it's possible the lining will flake off over time...especially if the bottle is dented or exposed to extreme environments. And it's not dish-washer safe.
With very strict supervision from ECOtanka management team, high quality standard, and 100% QC of all products, ECOtanka products are currently made in the world's major stainless steel bottle manufacturing center in Zhejiang, an eastern coastal province of Mainland China.
Clean - Stainless steel is one of the most hygienic materials available. Its unique surface has no pores or cracks to harbour dirt, grime or bacteria. This is why it is so commonly used in cookware, food preparation and commercial kitchens.
Long lasting - A stainless steel bottle will stay completely clean and safe for years upon years. Stainless steel has a life expectancy of over 100 years.
Safe - Food grade stainless steel is 100% BPA free, safe, non-toxic, non-leaching and corrosion resistant. You can switch between water, juice or milk drinks and there will be no taste or smell of any of them after the bottle has been washed!
Green - By taking your own stainless steel bottle, always re-filling and re-using, you are doing your part to help reduce the mounting plastic waste problem on our earth.

Stainless Steel Water Bottles are Eco-Friendly
Stainless steel is made out of natural elements, and they can be easily recycled into new products when the time comes. Though plastic bottles are often made from recycled materials and can be recycled themselves, both creating and recycling plastic is less friendly to the environment than stainless steel production and recycling.
Stainless Steel Water Bottles are Much More Durable than Plastic
If you've ever used a plastic water bottle, you know how flimsy they can be. Some plastic water bottles are meant for one-time use and crush easily. Others are made to be used multiple times. However, those can melt when washed in the dishwasher. Even if you run over a stainless steel water bottle with your truck, it will survive.
Stainless steel bottles can be used under virtually any condition. Because of their versatility and durability, stainless steel water bottles are the bottles of choice for many athletes and adventurers.
Stainless Steel Water Bottles are Safe
The plastics in recyclable plastic water bottles are thought to be a health risk. Harmful chemicals are emitted from these bottles, and these chemicals might cause cancer. By switching to stainless steel, you can prevent harmful carcinogens from leaching into your drinking water.
