Why Glass?

Why choose a glass water bottle over plastic? It allows you to sip colder and more pure-tasting water, looks sleek and elegant, and is thicker and sturdier than plastic. Glass is also better for the planet: made from all-natural, sustainable raw materials, glass is 100% recyclable and can be reused endlessly. Plus, glass is just as portable as plastic, so you can take your bottle virtually anywhere!

Here are a few more reasons why glass is better than plastic for the environment and for you:

For the Environment

  • Roughly 2.7 million tons of plastic are used each year worldwide for disposable drinking bottles. Less than 1% of all plastic is recycled, meaning 99% of plastics are incinerated or end up in a landfill.
  • Americans buy an estimated 29.8 billion plastic water bottles every year, and nearly 8 out of every 10 bottles will end up in a landfill. Once there, it takes over 500 years for plastic bottles to break down.
  • It is estimated that the production of plastics accounts for 4% of the energy consumption in the United States. Plastic is bad for our Earth, and uses up valuable resources!
  • Glass is the only packaging material generally regarded as safe by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration. Glass is made from all-natural, sustainable raw materials, is 100% recyclable, and can be recycled endlessly with no loss in quality or purity.

Better for You

  • Glass, unlike some plastic bottles, does not contain any harmful chemicals such as BPA, phthalate, PVC, or polycarbonate, so nothing can leach into your water from a glass bottle.
  • Plastics made from polycarbonate resin can leach bisphenol-A (BPA), a strong endocrine disrupter, into its contents. Studies suggest that BPA may negatively affect reproductive organs, such as the breasts and prostate, as well as causing potential heart problems.
  • You can save money and Earth’s resources by utilizing an eco-friendly, reusable, recyclable glass water bottle.
  • Glass is taste-neutral, so no plastic or metallic taste will affect your beverage. Try our taste-test challenge: Sample various beverages from glass and plastic and let us know what you find out!
