Honor the Earth Sponsor Spotlight: Glass Water Bottles #HonorEarth

I love using reusable water bottles. I can not stand plastic water bottles. Call me crazy, but I swear I can taste the plastic in the water. I also dislike how they are expensive and then just get tossed (in the recycling bin, of course) after just one use. It seems so wasteful to me. I love how easy reusable water bottles are to refill throughout the day and the plain and simple fact that you can reuse them! I have been on the hunt for my "perfect" water bottle and after trying a few different brands, I have found it! I have been wanting to try glass water bottles for the longest time and was so excited when agreed to work with me for the Honor the Earth event! They sent me a 22 oz Glass Water Bottle with Silicone Sleeve by Lifefactory in Midnight Blue and I am in love with it! I have seriously used this water bottle since I received it.

I love that it is 22oz., which I feel is larger than most brands of water bottles (it's at least bigger than any water bottles I own). I definitely feel that since using it I have become more conscious of the amount of water I drink, which is especially important since summer weather seems to already be here (it has been in the high 80's-90's lately!). The wide mouth makes it super easy to drink out of and even little man has been known to grab it up and take a swig! The silicone sleeve that wraps around the glass water bottle is perfect for keeping the bottle slip-proof, even when it's full of icy water and "sweaty".

I  am so glad that I have finally gotten to give glass water bottles a try. I prefer it to my other metal water bottles and love that with glass, I don't have to worry about any toxins leaching into my drink (no BPA,  phthalates, PVC or polycarbonate to worry about here)! Being that it is glass, it is also safe for both hot & cold beverages. I usually just put water in mine, but I'm sure this summer it will have some iced tea in it as well! I really like the silicone sleeve, which makes the bottle easy to pick up and I think it makes the water bottle look pretty too! The silicone sleeve isn't just pretty though, it is safe as well, being free of plastics and 100% non-toxic! Also, even though this water bottle is dishwasher safe, I prefer to hand wash and the wide mouth of the bottle makes it super simple!

Keeping me company in the office
This has been such a great water bottle to use and I really just can't say enough great things about it! I know I would definitely love to have some more! (the colors are so fun too!) If you are looking to start using glass water bottles, I definitely recommend as the place to shop! Whether you are looking to get one of the Lifefactory glass bottles or another reusable item for home or when you are on the go, has so many wonderful reusable items to help you ditch the disposables!

  1. I just came across your blog today because I was searching for glass water bottles. I just received my first Lifefactory water bottle yesterday from Amazon. I purchased one of their bottles with the the spout on the cap so I'm testing it's leakability (if that's even a word). I am seeing so many posts about Lifefactory around the blogosphere so it's great to hear your feedback. Thanks!
