24BOTTLES FAQs 常見問題
WHY CHOOSE 24BOTTLES? 為何在芸芸品牌中選擇24BOTTLES?
24Bottles merges urbanity, simplicity and grace in a range of products that are all linked by the theme of lightness. Our purpose as a company is that of unburdening the world from disposable plastic bottles, as well as to lighten the planet from the exaggerated amount of plastic waste that fills landfills all over the world. The principle we follow is a very simple, classic one: form follows function. And environment too. We focus on simple shapes and forms, slender silhouettes and what is more important, low weight. The Urban Bottle is the handiest and lightest stainless steel bottle on the market: we manufacture a highly portable, urbane, safe alternative to disposable plastic bottles, so as to guarantee the best performance day after day without adding excessive weight to your bag. Other goods we design embrace the same philosophy. Comfort and simplicity come first.
24Bottles將都市性，簡約性和優雅性融合到一系列以輕便爲主題的産品中。 我們的目標是减輕一次性塑料瓶的負擔，幷减輕全球垃圾堆填區中大量塑料廢物的數量。我們旨於在設計概念和品牌整體美學方面以輕巧為原則。我們專注于簡單的外型和使用性，以纖細的輪廓配合輕量設計。Urban Bottle是市場上最方便，最輕的不銹鋼瓶。24Bottles具有高度的便攜性，輕便性，安全性，可確保日復一日的最佳性能而不會增加您的手提袋重量。我們設計的其他商品也遵循相同的理念：舒適和簡單至上。
WHAT DOES -0,08 MEAN? 瓶身上-0,08的意思是?
24Bottles means drinking in style while helping the planet breathe better. Day by day, step by step, we help you reduce your individual carbon footprint. The number printed on our Urban Bottle, namely 0.08 Kg (2.8 oz), indicates the amount of CO2 emitted in the production of one single disposable 500ml plastic bottle. Therefore it is the quantity of CO2 you avoid releasing into the atmosphere every time you refill your Urban Bottle instead of buying a short-lived single use plastic bottle.
24Bottles意味著在我們喝水的同時幫助地球呼吸得更好。我們會逐步，逐步地幫助您減少個人的碳足跡。Urban Bottle上印刷的數字為0.08千克（2.8盎司），表示在生産一個500ml一次性塑料瓶時排放的二氧化碳量。因此，這是您每次使用Urban Bottle以代替短壽命的一次性塑料瓶，都避免釋放0.08千克的CO2量到大氣中。
ARE ALL BOTTLES BPA-FREE? 所有的瓶子都不含BPA嗎？
Yes! Our stainless steel bottles and pints are crafted to be as lightweight as aluminium ones, but unlike the latter, 18/8 stainless steel bottles do not need any internal plastic lining that could leach over time, releasing harmful and unhealthy substances such as BPA and phthalates. Our lids and caps are also made from 100% BPA free plastic. In fact, 24Bottles’ lids are made out of the same BPA free plastic used to produce baby bottles.
是! 我們的不銹鋼瓶可像鋁瓶一樣輕巧，但是與後者不同，18/8不銹鋼瓶不需要任何內部塑料襯裡，因為塑料會隨著時間的流逝滲出及釋放出有害和不健康的物質，例如BPA和鄰苯二甲酸鹽。我們的蓋子也由100％無BPA的塑料製成。 實際上，24BOTTLES的蓋子是用與生産嬰兒奶瓶相同的不含BPA的塑料製成的。
WHY 18/8 STAINLESS STEEL? 為什麼選擇18/8不銹鋼？
Stainless steel bottles are safer than plastic and aluminium ones, as they can be filled with any kind of beverage without leaching chemicals. That’s why at 24Bottles we chose to rely on the dependability of 18/8 stainless steel to craft our high-quality, long-lasting reusable bottles.
(*18/8 means that the stainless steel material contains 18% chromium and 8% nickel. 18/8 stainless steel is the standard material of edible utensils, with high strength anti-corrosion and corrosion resistance.)
ARE YOUR BOTTLES SUITABLE FOR ALL BEVERAGES? 您的瓶子適合所有飲料嗎？
Sure! Unlike aluminium canteens, the stainless steel we employ to manufacture our reusable bottles is naturally safe unlined and it is ideal to contain and maintain every kind of liquid. Aluminium is not suitable to be in contact with food and beverages (especially warm and acidic ones), as it is highly toxic. Our collections of stainless steel bottles are 100% made from highquality 18/8 stainless steel and downright BPA-free. Both Urban Bottle and Clima Bottle can naturally carry any kind of beverage, warm or cold (see Will my bottle sweat?), acidic or carbonated, over and over again, without imparting any extra flavour or releasing harmful substances.
當然！ 與鋁製容器不同，鋁不適合與食品和飲料（特別是溫暖和酸性的食品）接觸，因爲它具有毒性。 我們的不銹鋼瓶系列100％由優質18/8不銹鋼製成，完全不含BPA。 Urban Bottle和Clima Bottle都可以讓你隨身携帶任何種類的酸味或碳酸味的冷或熱飲品，而不會產生任何額外的味道或釋放有害物質。
HOW DO I CLEAN MY BOTTLE? 我如何清潔我的瓶子？
Keeping your 24Bottles clean is easy. We recommend that the bottle be rinsed with warm water after every use, especially if the bottle is used to store a liquid other than water. For deep cleaning we suggest using warm water, mild soap, and a bottle brush. Otherwise, for an equally effective but organic alternative, use a solution made out of vinegar and a teaspoon of baking soda. Once washed, let the bottle dry with the cap off and the bottleneck facing downward to let water drain out. Painted bottles are not dishwasher safe. Only uncoated stainless steel products are dishwasher safe.
ARE ALL YOUR BOTTLES INSULATED? 全部款式的24Bottle都能保溫隔熱嗎？
No. Urban Bottles are single walled stainless steel bottles, therefore they won’t keep the temperature of the liquid if not combined with 24Bottles’ Thermal Cover. Clima Bottle, on the other hand, is purposely designed to function as a thermos. In fact, the Clima Bottle series come with a vacuum-sealed double stainless steel wall that allows beverages to stay hot for 12 hours and cold for 24 without an additional accessory.
不可以。Urban Bottles是單壁不銹鋼瓶，因此，如果不與24Bottles的Thermal Cover結合使用，它們將無法保持液體的溫度。另一方面，Clima Bottle系列專門設計用作熱水瓶，其帶有真空密封的雙層不銹鋼壁，無需額外的配件即可使飲料保持熱12個小時，保持冷24個小時。
ARE THE BOTTLES SCRATCH-RESISTANT? 瓶子耐刮擦嗎？
Every paint we choose to finish our bottles is made with an enduring acrylic, resin-based paint, free from lead and other toxic chemicals, authorised for food use. Because safety comes first. It can happen that after some time of normal usage, the paint may start to scratch. A careful use and washing of the bottle will clearly avoid this issue. If dropped, the bottle is likely to dent as well, but there is nothing to worry about regarding its safety: even if dented your stainless steel bottle will continue to serve you well for a long long time, without ever leaching any chemicals or toxins in your beverage. Everyone of us is a bit careless in our own way, that is why we highly recommend the combined use of Urban Bottle and Thermal Cover: this accessory will keep the temperature of your beverage still for hours, while cushioning the bottle from dings and dents.
我們選擇用來粉飾瓶子的每種塗料均由持久耐用的丙烯酸，樹脂基塗料製成，不含鉛和其他有毒化學物質，已獲准用作食品用途。在正常使用一段時間後，油漆可能會開始較易被刮擦。小心使用和清洗瓶子將能明顯避免此問題。如果不幸將水瓶摔倒，瓶身也可能會凹陷，但是不必擔心它的安全性：即使凹痕較大，亦不影響使用，因為水瓶並不會滲出任何化學物質或毒素。如果使用者擔心以上清況，我們强烈建議結合使用Urban Bottle和Thermal Cover：此配件可在幾個小時內保持飲料溫度不變，同時還能緩解水瓶因碰撞而產生的凹痕。
WILL MY BOTTLE SWEAT? 我的瓶子會出水珠嗎？
Clima Bottle is a double-walled, insulated bottle, therefore the exterior of its body will remain at room temperature, regardless of the temperature of its content, whether it is ice cold or piping hot. Urban Bottle, instead, is a single-walled bottle, not insulated, so it is likely to “sweat” if filled with cold beverages. It is also not recommended for hot liquids, as you can burn yourself while handling. We therefore recommend the use of Thermal Cover.
CLIMA系列是雙層絕緣的水瓶，因此，無論飲料的溫度如何，無論是載滿冰冷或溫熱的液體，其瓶身外部都會保持室溫。 相反，URBAN BOTTLE是單壁瓶，沒有隔熱，因此，如果裝滿冷飲，它很可能會“發汗”。 也建議不要將其用於熱液體，因為在握住時會燙傷自己。 因此，我們建議使用保溫套。
IS THE INFUSER LID SUITABLE FOR ALL BREWS? INFUSER LID是否適合所有熱飲？
You can fill your Infuser Lid with your favourite teas, spices and fruits to make perfect and delicious brews and infused water. The Infuser Lid fits all 24Bottles’ sizes.
HOW DO I USE THE INFUSER LID? 如何使用INFUSER LID？
Fill the Infuser Lid with your favourite brew, spices or fruits, insert the strainer and close with the top lid. Pour hot water in your 24Bottles, insert the Infuser Lid and close. To make your desired strength of tea/infusion, simply take the infuser out from the 24Bottles at the optimal brewing time. Remove the infuser easily and safely with its heat-resistant grip. Discard the tea leaves/fruit/spices by tapping into the bin immediately. Do not put on flame or heating element.
HOW DO I CLEAN THE INFUSER LID? 我如何清潔茶隔？
Once finished brewing your favourite tea/infused water with the Infuser Lid, discard the tea leaves/fruit/spices by tapping into the bin immediately, rinse in warm soapy water to prevent staining and pat dry. Otherwise, for an equally effective but organic alternative, use a solution made out of vinegar and a teaspoon of baking soda.
WHERE ARE YOUR BOTTLES MADE? 24BOTTLES在哪裡生產？
24Bottles’ stainless steel bottles and cups are currently manufactured in China, in the Zhejiang Province by certified partners who have implemented and maintain certifications for Quality Management System (ISO 9001), Environmental Management System (ISO 14001) as well as their Occupational Health and Safety management system (OHSAS 18001). We choose our partners very carefully and frequently visit the facilities ourselves. A continuous dialogue between parts is carried on to make sure work is done in conformity to industry’s high standards for quality and safety, fair labour, ethical business practices and environmental responsibility. A Code of Conduct is agreed between parts to ensure healthy, safe, equitable and responsibly-managed conditions with our suppliers. Social and environmental assessments are constantly conducted, as well as material and product safety testing. Other products by 24Bottles are made in Italy or within the EU.
24Bottles的不銹鋼瓶目前在中國浙江省由認證合作夥伴生産，這些合作夥伴已實施幷保持質量管理體系（ISO 9001），環境管理體系（ISO 14001）以及其職業健康與安全認證 管理系統（OHSAS 18001）。 我們非常仔細地選擇合作夥伴，幷經常檢查我們的生產設施。雙方會進行持續的溝通，以確保工作按照行業的質量和安全，勞工保障，道德商業慣例和環境責任的高標准進行。各部分之間均達成了行爲準則，以確保與我們的供應商保持健康，安全，公平和負責任的管理條件。持續進行社會和環境評估以及材料和產品安全測試。24Bottles的其他產品則在意大利或歐盟範圍內生產。
CAN I PUT MY BOTTLE IN THE FREEZER? 我可以將瓶子放在冰櫃內嗎？
If you desire a cool beverage, you can put your single walled Urban Bottle in the freezer as long as it is only for a short period of time, as liquids will tend to freeze and expand, damaging the materials of the container. Putting the Urban Bottle in the fridge is safe and won’t cause any damage to your vessel. Please keep in mind that the Clima Bottle should NEVER be put in the freezer or left in freezing conditions, as this would damage the bottle and its thermal capacity.
如果您想享用涼爽的飲料，則可以將您的單壁Urban Bottle放入冰櫃中，但只需要短時間放置，因為液體會凍結並膨脹，從而損壞水瓶的材質。請記住，切勿將Clima Bottle放在冰櫃中或置於冰凍狀態，因為這會損壞瓶及其熱容量。
