When Ben Johnson wrote, "Drink to me only with thine eyes," he more than likely had an inkling that Bisphenol-A (BPA) lurked in the bottom of his beloved's water bottle. If Bilt Water bottles had been available then, maybe the poet would have written a different line.

Canadian-based Bilt Operations creates bottles made with premium, food-grade type 304 stainless steel using sustainable and transparent business practices. Not to get too technical, but Bilt also makes sure leaching chemicals are kept at bay by coating the interior of the bottle with electrolyte charge and dolomitic sand blasting. Sounds like poetry to us.
