It’s no surprise that water is one of the most important things you can put in your body. With the Mayo Clinic suggesting the average person drink between six and eight 8-ounce glasses of water a day, people have fallen in love with water bottles in recent years. From size and shape to color and material, there are thousands of water bottles on the market today. But, not all water bottles are created equally. When it comes to drinking water, there’s one bottle that’s a clear choice above the rest, as that’s a glass bottle.

Why is that, you ask? Because glass bottles are:


Because glass can be recycled an unlimited amount of time, never losing its quality or integrity, glass is a much more eco-friendly choice.


Some metal and plastic bottles contain bisphenol A — a chemical the FDA has warned against consuming. Needless to say, it’s not something you want to find in the bottle that’s carrying your water all day.


Have you ever noticed that the same drink tastes differently depending on if it’s in a carton, plastic bottle, or glass? That’s because the chemicals and materials lurking in the packaging actually seep into your food or drink over time. But, because glass is chemical-free, it offers the purest taste.

Dishwasher Safe

Unlike many plastic bottles, which will melt in the dishwasher, almost all glass bottles are 100% dishwasher safe. This also means you’ll save time and water cleaning glass water bottles in a fully loaded dishwasher, as opposed to washing them by hand.

Good at Controlling Temperatures

Whether you enjoy starting your day with a steaming hot cup of coffee or an ice cold water, glass locks in the temperature of the drink you’re sipping on.

Aesthetically Pleasing

While we know it’s definitely not the most important reason on our list, it’s still something you should consider! Glass bottles simply look sleeker and more stylish than their cloudy, plastic counterparts.
