It’s good for you, and it’s good for the environment. Glass is one of the greenest materials on the planet and is 100% recyclable. And, it is safe: you don’t have to worry about Bisphenol A (BPA)/Bisphenol S (BPS) or other unknown chemicals that can leach into liquids from plastic and metal bottles.
For your health, and to protect the environment – plain and simple. Moreover, water and beverages will taste better coming out of a glass bottle because glass is taste neutral—no unpleasant plastic or metallic taste. As for the environment, plastic bottled water creates enormous quantities of waste which end up in landfill, and you can prevent it by using a glass bottle instead of plastic ones. You’ll save money and Earth’s resources if you don’t buy bottled water!
They hold around 8 giant gulps, or 6 regular glasses. If you want the exact measurements – well, they hold around 500ml or 17.4oz of water.
They’re as clean as a whistle, according to world renowned testing authorities. The bottles have been subjected to stringent tests by FDA accredited labs, and they emerged with flying colours. The tests weren’t your run of the mill safety examinations; they conducted a ‘leach test’ for the glass, which checks for harmful elements like lead and cadmium. The caps were put to BPA/BPS presence tests, and the covers, made from food grade silicone, were tested for their feasibility too. Needless to say, we passed all these tests by a comfortable margin - and to be doubly sure, we sterilize our bottles before they leave out premises for added measure!
They are, but they need to be handled with care. With a silicone cover to help protect the high-grade glass, this water bottle is our ideal companion on your commute to work and gyms/dance studios. They’re durable, but breakable by nature. We recommend you avoid high impact activities while you’re carrying your Glass Act bottle.
It's better if you don't!
Long answer: Glass Act bottles are made from high grade soda lime glass. They are strong but not impervious to rapid temperature changes or impact. Like any bottle, they will expand and crack if left in the freezer or hit with boiling water.
Please don’t. Since liquids expand when frozen, the glass bottle may develop cracks. Do not put Glass Act beverage bottles in the freezer!
We recommend you do not remove the silicone sleeve while washing to extend product newness, and longevity. If you wish to remove the sleeve, it comes off best in warm, soapy water or with rubbing alcohol.
