Why You Should Carry a Reusable Water Bottle? Glass Can Be Recycled Unlike plastic, glass is made from all-natural, sustainable raw materials (mostly sand), and it doesn’t degrade over time. Even better? Glass is 100% recyclable, and it can be recycled again… and again… and again, without losing any quality or purity. According to the EPA, making new glass from recycled glass is typically cheaper than using raw materials. Chemical-Free Glass is the only packaging material that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration typically regards as safe. Unlike many plastics, glass doesn’t have any harmful chemicals with scary, unpronounceable names, like BPA, phthalate, PVC, or polycarbonate. Plastics made from polycarbonate resin can leak BPA into the contents of the container (quick refresher: studies suggest BPA could have harmful effects on reproductive organs, especially in infants and toddlers). Easy to Clean Instead of wasting water thoroughly hand-washing your glass water bottle, it’s safe to throw into the dishwasher with all the other dishes you need to wash. Seems like a small impact, but this bulk-wash move saves water and is more environmentallyfriendly than separately handwashing your water bottle. Saves Money Buying bottled water costs add up quickly, while tap water costs mere pennies. You don't have to open your wallet just to satisfy your thirst if you have your trusty eco friendly water bottle within arm's reach. If you frequently purchase bottles of water, you could save about $1,000 a year.
