Glass water bottles are suitable for kids and adults. Many people prefer a glass bottle because it tends to hold its temperature better than a plastic bottle, and some don’t like the slightly metallic taste that comes with some stainless bottles. Ask yourself what’s most important in a water bottle, be it style, durability, or safety, and you’re one step closer to your perfect match!
Many glass bottles are doubled-walled and/or made from BPA-free polycarbonate glass, so they are extremely durable and built to withstand daily use. A silicone case will not only help protect your bottle, but make it easier to grip, which significantly reduces the chance of your bottle breaking. Store glass bottles carefully and monitor toddlers.
Glass is slightly heavier than plastic or stainless steel water bottles, yet they remain a practical, comfortable reusable option that comes in an array of styles. An added benefit to glass is that it's transparency allows for you to always monitor the contents inside. Glass water bottles range in sizes, but most fall between 9 oz - 16 oz and 20 oz – 39 oz sizes. Check out our thermal and double-walled options for temperature sensitive on-the-go drinks like tea.
Many people believe glass to be the safest reusable option. Glass is naturally BPA and phthalate-free and can be recycled at the end of its long life, making it a great alternative to disposable plastic bottles.

“The truth is, many bottled-water companies obtain water from municipal water supplies, which is why I love our reuseit brand bottle. It’s clever, fun and carries a message: use tapwater and preserve natural resources!

“I’m impressed with the removable stainless steel tea strainer and silicone splash guard. The Therm-O Terra glass vessel is a great eco-thermal alternative to the use of disposable paper cups & tea bags. It’s durable, and it reduces waste. What more can you ask for in a glass water bottle?"
