My husband sent me a link to this recently and I had to share it. I’m always posting about the newest water bottle that I fond and this certainly, is no exception. So far the only glass water bottle I am aware of (there may be more) is the great one by Life Factory which I reviewed a while ago. I still like it and use it often. But the Bamboo Bottle is a little different and has a very interesting sustainability effort behind the brand so I thought it was worthy of a mention here on SafeMama.com
As you may very well know, glass is one of the safest materials to use when it comes to liquids because whether you put ice cold or steaming hot in contact with it, it will not leach toxins like plastics can. SO using it for a reusable water bottle is brilliant – though that always comes with it’s own challenges. What I thought was really cool is the removable bamboo sleeve that fits over it. The Bamboo acts like an insulator so you can actually use this for hot liquids and I imagine it insulates against the bottle sweating (though I don’t know if it does, I haven’t actually seen on of these in person). The bamboo also protects the glass from breaks.
All the materials are recyclable and/or from renewable sources so it’s a nice way to eliminate the plastic water bottles from your life. Who needs em? Plus it’s pretty stylish I think.
They aren’t available until 2011 so you won’t find one of these in your Christmas stocking (but oh how I would love that) – but you can pre-order one when then come available again. They retail for $25.
