If your plastic water bottle gets exposed to the sun, the liquid contents inside are not safe to drink.

A far as we know, maybe...
Personally, I try to stay away from things stored, and especially cooked, in plastic.

BPA (bisphenol A, found in bottles with recycle codes 3 or 7) can seep from plastic. Microwaving or warming plastic might release BPA and antimony. It "might" raise blood pressure and affect brain and prostate of fetuses.Source(s): https://kcms-prod-mcorg.mayo.edu/healthy-lifestyle... http://blogs.ifas.ufl.edu/news/2014/09/22/dont-dri...

Safe for the environment? NO
They will end up as microplastics which are consumed by aquatic life and lead to their demise. If plastic water bottles are used, they should be recycled.

Some and some are not.

somewhat. Some contain chemicals that are not safe long term. BPA (Bisphenol-A) is one, but there are other unregulated chemicals that are thought to be almost as bad.
To be really safe, stick to glass or metal. check that the metal is not plastic lined.

Safe for whom or what?

NOT if they're put in the microwave, they leach plastics into the liquid.
Not if you use the same bottle over and over, refilling it. The chemicals do leach into the fluid, especially if something acidic is in it (orange juice).
One time use, yes, ok. But recycle the bottles and caps.

Depends on how you use it
