Then we all started microwaving, and Tupperwaring, and jogging with
our lightweight plastic bottles. But with recent evidence of BPA
leakage, some resorted to using aluminium products – a throwback to
camping canteens. Finally, we have come back to glass. Our grandmothers
had it right.
I only question, why didn’t I think of that? What a great idea. The moment I saw the Lifefactory Glass Water Bottles hanging on the end of the aisle at my local Whole Foods

silicone protective sleeve. They come in a variety of sizes and varying
top options. I got the Classic Cap 16oz
in dark purple and am really very happy with it. I shied away from the
