Speaking of wasting water, why not conserve it in a nice clean glass container? Pure has come out with a shatterproof completely clear solution to glass water bottles.
They were nice enough to send me their 520ml Traveler bottle to try out and it quickly has become my waterbottle of choice. The outer coating is BPA free and gives the bottle a nice non-slip grip and feel while remaining totally transparent.
The top is also ingenious with two screw tops, one with a wide mouth to accommodate ice cubes and easy cleaning, and a small drinking top to prevent splashing when drinking on the go.
Plus it’s clean, stylish and can accommodate any drink mixes, powders or liquids you can throw at it. Nice!
When it comes to water bottles, the choices seem endless. By now you probably know all the problems with disposable plastic water bottles, even the so called green bottled water have on the environment, but what about you?
Lately there has been a big deal made of Bisphenol A or BPA. BPA is a estrogen hormone mimicking chemical and has been linked with all kinds of bad stuff, including breast cancer, early puberty, and problems in infants and is found in some surprising places including reusable water bottles and canned fruits and vegetables.
This was a problem with some reusable plastic and aluminum bottles (aluminum water bottles require a liner to prevent corrosion). Fortunately this has been addressed for most of the big name manufacturers including new production models of Nalgene, SIGG and Camelbak.
The best way to choose a water bottle to avoid BPA and other toxins, is to select the right one for your needs and use it correctly. Here are the prevalent reusable container options:
Glass or Ceramic water bottles
Good for hot (when insulated) and acidic items, scratch resistant, durability, longevity
Bad for weight, traveling, impact
Stainless Steel water bottles
Good for hot (when insulated) and acidic items, durability, longevity
Bad for weight
