My mom gave me my first Lifefactory water bottle in 2007 and I've been using one daily ever since. I've bought different sizes in different colors over the years to match my day's activities and what will fit into the purse I've decided to use. It's important to me to drink clean filtered water during the day and these bottles help me do that. (I have a water filter at home.) Plastic bottles are wasteful and make water taste terrible. Finally, Lifefactory bottles look nice, and the wide mouth make it easy to drink from and also to clean. Great product that I cannot do without!
Work at an emergency room as a RN. Use my 4oz Lifefactory bottle to bring heavy cream to work for my coffee and the 9oz with the flat lid to drink my green smoothies from and coffee from. Everybody likes my bottles. I do too.
Each time I would buy a new sippy cup or trainer cup for my kids I would have flashbacks to my single and dating days, "Will this be 'The One' or just end up like all the others and be another disappointment?" I have spent a sickening amount on money on sippy cups and novelty cups over the past 4 years... And don't even get me started on the aggravation that has come with trying to disassemble and reassemble them. I'm pretty certain you need a rocket science degree to properly do so... Or at least a full night's rest, of which I have neither. On an impromptu shopping trip to our local health food store, I finally found "The One." Lifefactory! (Interesting sidenote: I also met my husband while randomly grocery shopping). I bought two of the pink 12 oz sizes with a cautiously optimistic attitude to it's potential success. When I tried them out on my girls (Ages 2 and 4) I was blown away with how instant of a success they were! My daughters both drank all 12 oz within a couple of hours and drank even more when I refilled them. No nagging, prodding or bribing needed! Back in our sippy cup days, I couldn't even get them to drink 6 oz in a day! Thinking this might be a fluke, I filled them up the next day and, again, was so pleased with how much water my girls drank. They now go with us everywhere we go: Ballet, the library, trips to Grammy's, etc. We have been completely converted (my husband and I are proud owners of the 22 oz sizes) and I can't wait to get our sippy cup castoffs to Goodwill! Thank-you for finally being "The One."
This lovely blue lifefactory bottle travels really well to work. It fits in my car, in my backpack, and really well in my day-to-day activities. It is holding up well through washes and use. I really enjoy drinking from glass versus plastic or aluminum. The silicone cover protects the glass really well even when packed into the side of my backpack.
I take my wife's lifefactory bottle, and my two year old son takes it from me. It ends up on our hand-me-down indoor play gym every afternoon. It's quite sturdy; it never breaks when he takes it out of my work bag! Once he figures how to get the cap off, I am in trouble!
