Growing up, I would diligently save my soda cans so I could exchange them for a nickel each at the local recycling center. Now, they have these nifty blue or green bins that we can put all of our recyclables into for automatic sorting and recycling. We’ve all heard of recycled paper, but what else can be made from recycled products? Take a gander at the Bottles Up glass bottle.
If you think a water bottle is just a water bottle, you are so wrong. As someone who looks for easier and environmentally friendly ways to drink more water, I know when I come across a good water bottle, and the BottlesUp bottles are a good bottle.
If you look at the bottle, it simply looks COOL. The BottlesUp bottle is made of recycled glass using handcrafting techniques. Each bottle is unique, with little bubbles and imperfections embedded deep in the glass. At the same time, the bottles are shiny and chic, and I love how I feel totally modern when I’m drinking from it. Each bottle has a wide mouth, which means you can easily put in ice cubes (YES!) and has four grip rings to prevent any hand slips. The cap seals on tightly to prevent any leaks if the bottle gets tipped over. (Seriously – no leaks. Here’s a picture of the bottle filled with water, upside down.)
The benefits of BottlesUp bottles go beyond just helping you drink water. They also help us make environmentally friendly choices. Each BottlesUp bottle is made with a minimum of 75% post-consumer recycled glass. The grip rings and the cap are made of food-grade silicone (which helps keep the bottle sealed tightly.) The bottles are also shipped and packaged without any plastic and minimal packaging (which can be recycled) giving BottlesUp “the lowest carbon footprint in the industry.”
BottlesUp are a hip and eco-friendly way to drink water. They’re durable and unique so you’ll easily be able to tell your bottle from all the others. You can purchase BottlesUp bottles online for just $33.95 or at select retailers nationwide. The bottles come clear but are available with blue, orange, green or black rings and cap.
