Kid-Safe Water Bottles: The Right Option For You

Kid-Safe Water Bottles

Kid-safe water bottles are different than our other bottles. Why?

Safety is a top concern when looking for kid’s water bottles, and it’s one of ours too. Kid-safe water bottles get rigorously tested to make sure they are safe for your children to use. All water bottles get tested, but kid-safe water bottles get extra emphasis to make sure there are no choking hazards. Keeping kids safe is one of our main concerns, so we work with you to make sure you’re getting the correct water bottle for your next upcoming event. We also follow rigorous testing requirements so everyone can have fun without worrying. 

The Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) ensures the safety of all products, but they give special attention to kid-safe water bottles. This act makes sure that kid-safe water bottles are truly safe for kids. CPSIA breaks down four age grades and tests water bottles by the standards of each group. We take CPSIA very seriously, and we won’t sell you bottles that haven’t gone through CPSIA testing if you’re looking for kid-safe water bottles.

We’re going to talk about the best kid-safe water bottles for your specific age group. Each age group has different requirements for kids’ safety so let’s talk about them and help you find the right fit. Below you’ll find the four age grades and some great bottles approved for kids. Cute and functional! Continue reading

Water Bottle Fundraisers: What to Know

kids_for_the_bay3Many of our clients hold water bottle fundraisers for their nonprofit organization, and have great success with promoting their environmental consciousness with their group’s supporters. However, there are a few things you need to know before selecting which bottle you’ll use for water bottle fundraisers.

1. Age of your primary recipients

Focused on adults? If your bottles will be purchased and used primarily by adults (if you’re a church selling water bottles after services, for example), then you can pick and choose from any water bottle on the Bulletin Bottle website.

Targeting teens? If you’re a high school selling water bottles at your football games, you can choose from any water bottle on our site.

Aiming for tweens or children? This is where it gets tricky. While each water bottle we carry has passed testing for applicable FDA standards, the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) mandates that we take extra precautions when selling water bottles meant PRIMARILY for children under the age of 13. We’ve written a comprehensive FAQ on CPSIA, but in a nutshell, let us know if your audience could be children under 13 so we can help you select bottles that are tested and approved for your age group and your unique needs.
