Hollywood’s Elite Say Yes to Glass

Posted on:

 

What’s the best way to drink water? From a glass bottle, of course! But don’t just take our word for it just take a look at all the Tinsel Town celebs we’ve spotted choosing glass:

 

Cameron Diaz, actress and newly acclaimed health guru, was spotted carrying her French-style glass bottle with a rubber-sealed ceramic pop top whilst at her new ‘Body Book’ signing last week. The Hollywood beauty swears by the benefits of water and she certainly knows how best to store it ;) Reese Witherspoon, Jessica Alba and Kirsten Dunst are also big fans of glass water bottles. They have been snapped carrying them from the gym, walking in the park, and we bet they keep them at their desks too!

 

 

With such glamorous support, here is a quick reminder as to why glass water bottles are really catching on:

 

Health

 

A glass bottle is completely inert and does not react with  its contents, making it  safe to use over and over again.

 

Environment

 

Glass is 100% recyclable and can be reused over and over and over again without loss of quality. This makes glass one of the most eco-friendly materials available.

 

Taste

 

You’ve got to agree that water simply tastes best out of glass! Not convinced? Do a taste test at home and compare the taste and feel of a glass bottle against other materials.

 

Look

 

Glass packaging always add that wow factor to anything it holds. Water in a glass bottle just looks that extra special.

 

Thinking about Water?….Think Glass!

Is your New Year’s resolution to drink more water?  If so, why not get a reusable glass bottle to keep you hydrated when on the go?

 

There are lots of designs to choose from, all making it easier and pleasurable for you to keep up your water intake ;) Pictured below are a few of our favourites from Flaska, Wiggle and LifeFactory.

 

Looking at these lovely bottles got us thinking more about water. Water covers 71% of the Earth’s surface, and is vital for all known forms of life. Our bodies are 66% water and even though we could survive without food for more than 30 days, we would last less than a week without water. Amazingly only 2.5% of the Earth’s water is from freshwater sources!
Unfortunately water – and especially our oceans – is also a place where humans dump their rubbish. Over 6 billion kilos of rubbish’, including considerable amounts of plastic, is being dumped into the ocean every year. Fortunately a few committed people are taking actions to tackle the problem of irresponsibly discarded plastic bottles. Harvard University students have voted to banish plastic water bottles from their campus, and   Hollywood actor Jeff Bridges is one of a number of high profile celebrities encouraging his fans to stop using plastic bottles.

 

Glass lovers know that when they choose glass they are making a positive impact on the environment. Even when a glass bottle reaches the end of its life, it is 100% recyclable as it can be  melted down and used to produce more glass products. Also, a glass bottle is completely inert and does not react with  its contents, making it  safe to use over and over again.

 

So next time you reach for that bottle of water – help the planet and make sure it’s a glass one ;)

Do you use a glass water bottle?

Staying well hydrated when it’s hot is definitely a must. Drinking lots of water throughout the day is the best way to stay hydrated and maintain peak mental concentration levels, so with summer just around the corner why not get your bottle water ready?

 

When choosing a water bottle, there are several factors to take in to consideration; price, health, environment and taste. Luckily, water bottles made of glass tick all of the boxes!

Glass doesn’t leach into your drink, and there are no coatings to worry about- you can stick glass bottles right in the dishwasher.

 

If you like to save a few pennies you don’t even have to go out and buy a fancy bottle. In fact, why not be a little bit greener and reuse something? For example, a single-serving glass bottle of juice purchased at your local supermarket. Voila!

 

Water also tastes best out of glass! Do a taste test at home and compare the taste and feel of a glass bottle against other materials. Finally, water looks beautiful in glass bottles. When the light catches the water in the bottle you really feel you are drinking something special.

 

Do you use a glass water bottle? Is it store-bought, or did you ‘upcycle’ it? Let us know!
