Belle Regalo has launched a range of BPA Free Drinkware.
What is BPA?
Bisphenol A (BPA) is an industrial chemical used to make polycarbonate plastic resins, epoxy resins, and other products.
How is BPA Used?
Bisphenol A (BPA) is a chemical building block that is used primarily to make polycarbonate plastic and epoxy resins. Polycarbonate plastic is a lightweight, high-performance plastic that possesses a unique balance of toughness, optical clarity, high heat resistance, and excellent electrical resistance. Because of these attributes, polycarbonate is used in a wide variety of common products including digital media (e.g., CDs, DVDs), electrical and electronic equipment, automobiles, sports safety equipment, reusable food and drink containers, and many other products.

The factory has undertaken a wide range of testing and sourcing of materials to bring the highest quality promotional gifting products to the market.
Barron has designed and crafted this range of gifting products by working with specialists in both Europe and the USA. The range is designed with the latest in innovative styling, where each new product has a unique feature and resultant benefit for its customers to sell.
All products have been manufactured from materials that are compliant and safe according to South African and International standards with over 6000 product tests having been performed to introduce this exciting new range. The standard operating procedure ensures that all products are tested using a chemical detection instrument and all food related products are thoroughly tested by independent laboratories to meet all applicable standards. Therefore all customers are safe in the knowledge that products in this range are environmentally compliant and will ensure a brighter South African future.
There is a huge global focus on environmental sustainability and organizations that do not conform to the highest of standards can suffer immeasurable damage to their brand. We have seen major international companies pay a heavy price for their failure to ensure the safety of their consumers, and especially the negative impact in the media of having to recall promotional products that are not safe. According to Reuters on Friday 4th of June 2010, a major global fast food business made a voluntary recall of 13.4 million drinking glasses in North America due to the items containing excessive permissible levels of Cadmium
Our customers can be secure in the knowledge that our gifting products not only retain the highest quality and diverse range, with over 6000 tests performed to date thus far make them one of the most compliant and safe product ranges in the market today. In turn end consumers will not only enjoy original, great looking and safe promotional items, but your brand presence will be strengthened and raised to a new level knowing that your business is making an effort to improve on environmental and safe product by utilizing product that meets these standards.
The focus is on utilizing sustainable resources that are recycled and recyclable, reusable and energy saving that will enhance the consumer’s relationship with a company’s brands, as well as exposing its brands to a wider audience.
Wonderful natural elements are utilized as base materials, such as Recycled plastic bottles, Bamboo, Cotton and corn, which give the promotional products a fantastic look and feel. Not only are these natural elements environmentally sustainable but every material used in the manufacturing of the range is made of compliant elements, and in some cases exceeds, the strictest of domestic and international standards.
The new range includes promotional items such as various folders, notebooks, pens, bags, drink ware, outdoor accessories, office accessories, novelties, tools and even a wind up torch/radio.
All products in the range once produced are also then all tested to ensure that there are low or zero levels of the following elements:
Lead - this is a component often found in paints which can have a negative effect on the nervous system if there is excessive exposure
Cadmium - primarily used in pigment dyes and inks to coat products which pose a danger to many bodily organs including digestion, inhalation and the nervous system
BPA - used in the manufacturing of plastic bottles and lining in aluminum cans and can have effects on reproductive health and development
