Tom says: "The Lifefactory Water Bottle is one of my favorite reusable water bottles. The glass has no flavor, takes no flavor, and leaves no flavor. It's the epitome of earth-friendly: not petroleum based, and infinitely recyclable. Easy to clean and easy to know when it needs to be cleaned. Lifefactory adds a thin silicone sleeve that makes the glass far less likely to slip from your grip and protects the glass from minor bumps and drops. The screw cap is BPA-free polypropylene and has a handy loop/bail that allows you to attach the bottle to a carabiner (or the new clip on the front of the Brain Bag). The wide-mouth opening is great for dropping in a few ice cubes, lemon slices, or spooning in fruit juice concentrate; makes cleaning that much easier too. On top of all these details are the aesthetics: Lifefactory bottles are easy on the eyes and refreshing on the palate too — water tastes like water again. For me, staying hydrated is no longer a chore but something to which I look forward."
The Lifefactory Water Bottle is made with a patent-pending silicone sleeve, which provides a great gripping surface and helps to prevent breakage in the event you drop the bottle. The glass is made in France, the cap made in Poland, and the sleeve is made in the U.S.; all components are FDA-approved. The bottle is 100% free of BPA, phthalates, PVC, and polycarbonate. The wide-mouth design makes it easy to add ice, citrus slices, and tea bags. And cleaning the bottle is a snap: hand wash it or put it in the dishwasher.
The Lifefactory Water Bottle is available in two sizes: 22 oz (650 ml) or 16 oz (473 ml)
Note: Lifefactory beverage bottles are made from soda-lime glass. This is the same container glass used for wine bottles and other food storage containers. It is strong but not impervious to rapid temperature changes or impact. Like any glass bottle, it will crack if left in the freezer or hit with boiling water.
We think Lifefactory bottles are pretty tough: make sure to see our video demonstration. Still, if you break your Lifefactory bottle, you can order a replacement glass bottle directly from Lifefactory. Note that we only accept returns of unused Lifefactory bottles.
While the Lifefactory Glass Water Bottle is so tough that it doesn't need much padding for shipment, we knew we'd still have to include some kind of padding. Packing peanuts? Irritating. Bubble Wrap? Wasted plastic. Enter Geami packing material. It's renewably sourced, biodegradable, and 100% recyclable. Additionally, the 50lb Kraft paper used to make Geami packing materials has received third party certification from the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI). This SFI certification assures that the fibers used to make Geami packaging wrap are derived solely from sustainably managed forests. Your Lifefactory Glass Water Bottle will be wrapped in Geami packing material then placed in, depending on if you order the bottle alone or with other items, either a cardboard tube or one of our custom-size TOM BIHN logo boxes.
