We've given up our bottled waters, but now I share Leah's frustration. Our sport bottles leak in the most inconvenient places. And even though Nalgene is "better" plastic, I'm loathe to spend $6 on a bottle that might not return from the gym.
At first I laughed at No Impact Man's glass jar. After all, we Tennesseans have been drinking out of jelly jars for years. But on the go? A bit too extreme.
Then I recalled the Snapples of my college years--a near-perfect bottle to carry and reuse. The glass is thick and nubby, with metal cap that easily twists on and off. Unlike thin water bottles, glass bottles can be thoroughly cleaned in a dishwasher or in the sink. They also chill their contents quickly.
Of course, our low-processed lifestyle makes it hard to reuse packaging. I had to buy 5 Snapples on sale at Kroger first! My husband loved the unexpected treat, and I've hoarded the bottles for my own use.
I'd love to know what your family uses for drinking water on the go or at home. Are there any other bottles you reuse for drinking?
