As you’re gearing up for back-to-school, don’t forget the BPA-free water bottle. If you pack a homemade lunch for your child, then a good solid beverage container is a must-have. Even if you don’t pack a lunch, a water bottle is still a great idea for after-school sports, sips between classes and to help lower your child’s footprint in general. Plastic water bottles trash the planet and make puppies go blind (I know you don’t want blind puppies on your conscious). All of the following water bottles are 100% plastic-free and to the best of my knowledge and research abilities, 100% BPA-free as well. Why plastic-free? Nowadays there are BPA-free plastic water bottles available. Tritan is the most popular. However, BPA-free or not, it’s unclear how safe BPA-free plastic really is. Published research shows that even BPA-free plastics may contain harmful chemicals. Since kids are developing quickly, it’s simply smarter to skip the plastic altogether. Thankfully, you can easily find many totally safe reusable stainless steel and glass bottles. Keep reading to see 15 good choices. NOTE: All bottles below come in elementary kid to teen-friendly sizes.

I am still finding more awesome reusable water bottles that I must try, review, and include in my categories for Reusable Bottles, Baby Bottles, and Sippy Cups.
My latest find is from Lifefactory – a company founded in 2007 by a pediatric feeding specialist and an integrative designer that makes a range of adult, children’s and baby bottles (including baby bottles with feeding accessories).

The bottles take either the classic twist cap, or a flip cap, and the newest addition is the straw cap. The baby bottles, naturally, take the nipple but can later be transformed into children’s or adult bottles by using one of the other tops. The bottles are made of glass that can go from freezer to boiling water, and being plastic-free, are also BPA/BPS and phthalate-free. The sleeves are made of silicone and the tops of good #5 plastic (polypropylene). All components are made either in the US or Europe and the final product is assembled in the US.

LifeFactory glass water bottles are BPA/BPS free. The water you drink from these feels so clean inside your mouth, you can literally taste the difference. I bought one of these after viewing a review on YouTube and let me tell you it is the BEST decision I have ever made. I literally gave away all my plastic cups, water bottles, all plastic is long gone from my home. I couldn’t pass this up without letting you, my beautiful readers know about this amazing bottle!

This is my LifeFactory glass water bottle! It works for smoothies, juicing and water! Trust me the taste is DELISH!!!

LifeFactory also has a variety of colors, whatever fits your style they have it for you. Usually, I would’ve picked up a lavender color as my bottle but because I wanted to try something different, I am glad I went with the one above. It’s good to try different things!
