Here’s what we love about these oh so fun-colored water bottles you can get online or in one of your favorite holistic supermarkets, such as Whole Foods. First, since you’re starting to learn just how bad plastic is for you and the environment, it’s time to change your patterns and buying behavior with that growing knowledge. The Lifefactory water bottles produce their caps in polypropylene (PP#5) made of silicone, all of their components are made in the U.S. or Europe where the standards are generally better than “some” parts of Asia, all materials are FDA approved and they are BPA-free and phthalate-free.
They have a standard top, a Flip Cap (our favorite and we think the most practical of the choices) and a straw option which will appeal to many. We LOVE the fact that there is such a varied selection of fun colors, which makes you more likely to want to carry it with you everywhere. The Flip Cap provides a narrow-mouth spout for on-the-go drinking. The medical-grade silicone flip top seals with the polypropylene (PP#5) cap and the pivoting handle provides a great way to carry the bottle and stow out of the way while drinking.
Their glass bottles offer a pure taste with no leaching from plastics or metals (BRAVO!!) and their wide-mouth access makes it easy to add ice cubes, citrus slices or tea bags. The above bottle is a large 22 ounce version which is perfect for a long gym workout, although they also offer 16 and 12 ounce versions as well with the same top variations.
New to their line is the 16 ounce Glass Mug with Cafe Cap which provides protective insulating foam sleeve for hot beverages. We love this and I have started using it for my hot morning tea as I drive to the gym in the morning. It keeps your beverages warm for up to one hour and has a one-hand open/close which makes it great for driving, a pivoting handle which makes it easy to carry, and a spill-proof seal for safe transport. Like their other products, the materials are safe and healthy so there’s no leaching or taste residue like you get from plastic. We like the more sophisticated colors for this product, such as a deep muted plum and espresso (our two favorites). The below option also comes in blue, sage and orange.
Additionally, they have sage storage containers in fun colors, available in both two and four cup versions. More details and how to order online at www.lifefactory.com.
