Most people choose glass over other drinking materials, that’s why 85 percent of Americans agree that things just taste better in glass*and use it in their home.
So what is the safest glass bottle to drink from on the go? Looking over the options, if someone wants to drink from glass on the go, people are rightly concerned with the possibility of dropping a glass container in public and the resulting mess of broken sharp glass and liquid that will occur. For that reason, most people shy away from taking glass outside the home.
Glass bottles with rubber boot and silicon coverings with holes and slots, although better, suffer a similar fate if dropped and broken. Liquid everywhere and possible sharp glass shards that could harm you in cleaning up the mess. Also, because of the covering on these reusable glass bottles, your drink is not fully visible. In addition to that, cleaning the bottle requires you to remove the covering and to clean the covering separately. Then you need to replace the cover, which is sometimes difficult to do. Some bottles recommend using drops of liquid soap to ‘slide’ the covering back onto the glass, and then rinsing the exterior of the bottle.
Other glass bottles in the market place are covered in wood, removable plastic coverings, metal and other materials to lessen the chance of breakage. One of the many draw backs of these bottles is the multiple parts. Some of these bottles contain 4 and 5 parts to disassemble and reassemble! What if you lose one of the parts, then it’s difficult if not impossible to use again. In addition, you have the problem of not seeing what you’re drinking on most of these products due to the coverings.
The PURE Glass Bottle is the only glass bottle on the market that allows you to see the liquid you are drinking 100% and has only two parts; the bottle and the cap. Should the bottle accidently be broken when the cap is on, all glass stays within and adhered to the exterior clear SAFE-SHELL coating so clean-up and disposal is mess free. Once broken, the bottle can be put in a glass recycling bin since the FDA tested coating safely ‘vaporizes’ in the high temperature of glass recycling.
