Say goodbye to disposable cups and single use plastic, and jump on board the reusable bottle movement!
Not only are single use plastic bottles a nightmare for our environment, they also leech harmful chemicals into the water which disrupt our hormones.
That’s why it’s so important to ditch the plastic bottles and invest in reusable ones. You’ll stay hydrated while helping save the planet because glass can be melted down and recycled many, many times.
Glass water bottles are an excellent alternative to single use plastic. And though they are the more fragile family member of reusable bottles, rest assured that most are made from borosilicate type glass—made of silica and boron trioxide—making it crack resistant.
Why should You Choose Glass?
I’m an advocate for any reusable water bottle. They all work just fine! But, glass is the safest material to drink from as it is non porous. Glass bottles are also 100% BPA Free, Phthalate free, lead free and cadmium free. Plus, they’re tasteless! Unlike copper and stainless steel, glass doesn’t leave your tastebuds with a metallic after-taste.
Glass water bottles can also hold both hot and cold liquids—many glass bottles come with optional stainless steel infusers for both tea and fruit.
Some glass water bottles even come with holistic crystals that add various energy to your drink.
What To Look For When Shopping For A Glass Bottle
When choosing a glass water bottle, it’s best to pick one with a silicone or neoprene sleeve. Silicone sleeves protect against breakage, provide a firm grip, and keep condensation away. I mean, nobody likes reaching into their bag and realizing that everything is wet from condensation.
Another feature to consider is the cap. It’s best to avoid plastic and opt for either stainless steel or bamboo. I like bamboo because it’s an abundant and biodegradable resource that’s sustainably sourced.
Silicone rings are often included within the caps to prevent leakage, so make sure your product includes that! Most manufacturers will honor a free replacement if there’s a defect within a certain time frame.
Are Glass Water Bottles Dishwasher Safe?
Yes, they are. The glass itself and silicone sleeves can be washed in high temperature. The bamboo caps, however, are not dishwasher safe, and can become damaged.
