Plastic Identification Code

Mineral water are drunk by the thousands everyday in Singapore and many Singaporeans are reusing these mineral water bottles for their daily containment of potable water to work, to school, etc.

But how many of these Singaporeans understand the proper and safe use of these bottles? Just some year ago, it was reported that the chemicals making up the mineral water bottles may leak and seep into the water on reusing the bottles many times. It is also shuddering to witness some pouring boiling water into plastic mineral water bottles and water bottles, totally ignorant of the health risk of these acts.

How many Singaporeans are aware of the plastic identification code found at the side or bottom of plastic containers, mineral water bottles and their meanings?

For a deeper understanding of the Plastic Identification Code.
