If you’re not a fan of the commercialism of Valentine’s Day – BUT you still need to get a gift for someone – consider giving a gift that’s not only useful but also gives back.
A water bottle might not be the most romantic gift, but it surely is useful!
And with all the confusion about BPA and the other toxins found in both disposable and some reusable water bottles, or trying to tell the difference between aluminum and stainless steel… it’s no wonder old-fashioned glass has made a big comeback in the world of baby bottles and on-the-go bottles.
This glass beauty from BottlesUp makes a fun Valentine’s Day gift because:
1. It’s pink
2. It solves the plastic/aluminum confusion problem
3. It gives back
And let’s be honest… water tastes better and more pure from glass. No weird plastic-y taste and no metallic smell like you sometimes get from other types of bottles. Glass is naturally free from BPA, phthalates, and PVC. Plus your water really sparkles in this work of art!
These bottles are made in North America from 75% post consumer recycled glass, with food grade silicone rings and cap. They’re handy to use and easy to clean – we hand wash ours (the opening is wide enough to fit a dish scrubbing brush inside, and they’re also dishwasher safe.
At home, we only drink filtered water from glass. Our boys eat and drink from real glass and dishes at their Montessori school. We received one of these (in green, it’s lovely too) for the review, and it has worked nicely on the go. We’ve used it for the past four months, and no breaks.
It’s also the only water bottle we reach for when we drink Grapefruit water, because you can’t mix essential oils with plastic.
Bottle size is 9.75″ tall and 3″ diameter. It holds 22 fl oz.
