Did you catch my review on Juice in the Box? PURE glass bottles are designed by the same company, and they sent me one of their bottles to review, along with the Juice in the Box.
What’s unique about PURE glass bottles is the design that makes them safe if dropped. The bottles are made from borosilicate glass, that can withstand high impacts. If the glass does break, the safe-shell coating keeps the glass shards contained, so there’s a drastically less chance of injury. There’s less clean-up too! The bottle is 100 percent recyclable, so if it breaks, you can toss the entire bottle into a recycling container.
The wide mouth of this bottle allows you to add ice, fruit wedges, and other flavoring. The wideness also makes it easy to clean. I’ve taken my PURE glass bottle everywhere:
I had no intention of testing the shatter-proof ability of my PURE glass bottle, but I accidentally did. It was dropped a couple of times inside our home, on the kitchen linoleum and living room carpet (I have a toddler, it happens). The bottle survived each time, no problem. And then…
My husband actually came running with me one evening, and he ended up putting the jogging stroller in my car trunk for me, after we were finished. Well, I had my PURE glass bottle in the folded up stroller hood (I keep stuff in the hood all the time). Later that day I couldn’t find the PURE bottle, but figured it’d show up soon. It never occurred to me that the bottle was inside the stroller. A couple of days later, I was opening up the stroller to go jogging, and wouldn’t you know? The PURE glass bottle fell right out of the hood and onto the cement. Booooooo!
But the safe-shell coating worked! Not only did the bottle not shatter everywhere, the outside was still smooth to the touch. I could NOT feel any cracks, bumps, etc., on the outside. I’m sad that my bottle is gone, but happy that I was able to inadvertently test out all of the company’s claims!
The bottle I received currently retails for $24.95, so it’s not the most inexpensive reusable bottle out there. But I have to say, this bottle is really elegant and sleek, and it’s glass (see below why that matters). I think the PURE glass bottle would make a lovely gift for someone (or for yourself). Also, if you buy two bottles, shipping is free to US and Canada.
So why choose glass?
