In brief: Safe? yes needed? no

Plastic bottles from deer park or aquafina are fine for single use.
However, there is nothing inherently safer about bottled water that you can't get from your tap. Especially if you have a refrigerator filter or a faucet filter like brita. It's much more economical for you and the environment to have a special stainless steel thermos they can use, or bpa free plastic one.
