ReUse It Glass Water Bottle Review Holiday Gift Guide



Since my son has been born I have been much more aware of the trash we make and the plastics we use. Part of the time it was me analyzing how much disposal items like water bottles and sandwich bags cost and the other was a concern for the planet my son and his children and their children would be born into. (Feels kinda crazy to think my own son will be a grown up one day, hes only 2!) My son is his own little planet saver in his own right. He hates trash. He gets annoyed at the park or river if he sees trash. He has to pick it and give it to me and make sure I throw it away. Over the summer he was starting to walk to the trash can himself. He makes me laugh and smile that he is concerned about littering. One thing myself I hate to see is plastic bottles on the ground. We live near rivers that flow to the Pacific ocean and I hate to think that they might end up in the beautiful Pacific and in our local rivers. I have been working on cutting our plastic bottle consumption by buying drinks in larger bottles then filling up reusable containers.

I have tried plastic reusable but they can often scratch and be harder to clean out. We have even tried metal bottles that work good but would get very slippery when a cold drink had been in there for some time. With a glass bottle I can use a bottle brush to get out even the tiniest particles of my smoothies! 



I really like the Glass Water Bottles we tried from ReUse It. They are large enough to carry my breakfast smoothies and perfect for taking my son some milk on the go. We use them for water, juice, hot coco and even last week soup we took to the park on a sunny but cool day. 


The glass bottles are made by Lifefactory and have the coolest silicone sleeves on them. I poured ice cold Apple Juice in one of them and left it on the counter for over an hour. I wanted to see how much condensation would build up and if it would still be easy to grip. It past the test! Even my mother in law was impressed and now wants one for Christmas. Thankfully ReUse It is having a Holiday Sale so I just might get her a reusable glass bottle.



Product info:
  • BPA-free
  • Free of phthalates, PVC and polycarbonate
  • Silicone sleeve is free of plastics and 100% non-toxic
  • No chemical leaching and no metallic taste

Glass water bottles by Lifefactory are a beautifully-designed alternative to plastic bottles and disposable water bottles. And, unlike stainless steel or cheap reusable bottles, there's no metallic or chemical aftertaste. Durable glass construction withstands daily use and provides fresh-tasting water - just like your regular drinking glasses at home. Colorful silicone sleeve protects your bottle and is easy to grip. Great for hot or cold beverages.

The only thing I would have liked is if it had a extra top that you could screw on that had a smaller sipping hole for when you are drinker warmer beverages. But they are wonderful bottles and great for home and on the go.
