With Earth Day being right around the corner, I’m sure I’m not the only one thinking about small changes to make to help out Mother Earth. Right now I can definitely say that I’ve been helping her out because, well, I’m not going anywhere. Using less gas, using less disposable packaging, and making use of what I have since its not easy to just run out and pick something up. If nothing else, everyone being stuck at home for the last month has been good for the environment.
I’ve also wanted to switch to a glass water bottle for workouts and going to the gym, but I’ve always had one thing standing in my way – I’m a klutz. My main worry was that I would drop the bottle and that would be the end of that. But then the folks at purifyou reached out to ask if I’d like to try out their glass water bottle. My first thought, of course, was no, until I checked out their website and saw that the bottles had a silicone sleeve. Score! Something to keep this bottle safe from the Meghan!
Purifyou is a family-owned and operated business looking to bring simplicity into your life while being environmentally friendly and health-conscious. Purifyou products include glass water bottles, mother’s essentials, and earth-friendly needs for your home and kitchen. They believe that a little contribution can go a long way. As such, a portion of their profits will be going to the construction of wells in impoverished communities around the world.
The bottles come in three sizes, so you can pick that size that works best for you. The glass is 100% recyclable and doesn’t leach harmful chemicals or unwanted flavors into your water like plastic or metal. The glass canteen is reusable and is entirely BPA free, Phthalate free, PVC free, lead-free, cadmium-free and worry-free.
They use glass made from premium borosilicate, which is more heat resistant than any other commonly used glass. The lid also features a stainless steel interior so no water touches plastic. The mouth is also just the right size between a narrow mouth and wide mouth, and 100% leak-proof. The wide mouth opening fits ice and fruit, but is also narrow enough to drink without drenching your new shirt. The bottles are also both microwave and dishwasher safe – which is a big plus for me.
The silicone sleeves are easily removable and smoother than ever. They also have embossed time and volume markings directly onto the sleeve, keeping track of your body’s hydration all day has never been easier (22oz and 32oz feature only). This is a great feature for those folks that either want to keep track of how much water they drink or need a little extra motivation to get their needed water intake. The silicone sleeve also acts as an insulator, keeping your beverage hot or cold for extended use.
The sleeves come in a bunch of fun colors, so you can pick something that fits your personality. I went with the Terra Cotta color because it was the closest thing to orange they had. I personally think its more of a coral, which I love, so that worked out well. They even have a glow in the dark one! I also love that the bottle and the silicone sleeves are dishwasher safe. No more having to worry about finding the right size brush to clean your bottle.
The lid also has a nifty O-ring on it, so it makes it easier to hold. And if you are like me it means that you can carry a couple of things at one time and not run the risk of dropping it. Can you tell I’m worried about dropping things?
I’ve only been using the bottle around the house and on my walks, but so far I like it a lot. I even found out that it fits in the cup holders in my car, which will be great for when I can get back to the gym. So if you are looking to switch to a glass water or to upgrade your existing one, I definitely recommend giving purifyou a chance.
Disclosure: I was provided a complimentary bottle for the purpose of reviewing it. As always, all thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.
