A few weeks ago I stumbled onto BottlesUp, a cool company that makes reusable water bottles from recycled glass here in the U.S. After watching the video on their site I was amazed at just how much effort goes into making just one bottle. These are small pieces of art! I love that glass is making a comeback. Last year around this same time I wrote about another company making reusable glass bottles but I really haven't seen many others since that I like. BottlesUp twenty-two ounce bottles are designed with a nod to old glass milk bottles and the colorful silicone rings help it not to slip out of hand. I prefer glass because I know I don't have to worry about the typical plastic invaders like BPA and I don't get that gross plastic taste when I drink out of glass. I like to use these types of glass containers for fresh juices and smoothies too.
