Do you re-use mineral water bottle? And do you look at the number at the bottle base?

Re-using mineral water bottle is not a good idea. They are meant for single use only. The plastic used in those bottles are “Polyethylene terephthalate” which contains “Diethylhydroxylamine”, which is potentially a cancer causing element! A small school-going girl is believed to be died of cancer in Dubai because of repeatedly drinking water in a mineral water bottle. She painted it and decorated it and used to take water to school in that bottle only. So, please avoid using it repeatedly.

The plastic identification numbers are written at the bottom of the plastic bottles so do look at these before using them in a particular way.
