I love love bottles!

Thursday, May 14th, 2009

I received my Love Bottles today! That was very fast and they are so cute! They are bigger than I had expected which is a good thing since I like to drink plenty of water. The glass is sturdy so I am not afraid to drop them. As a matter of fact within minutes of unpacking them, I did drop one in my living room. Albeit it is carpeted but not with luxury soft fluffy carpet or anything. It survived without a scratch.

I ordered two bottles — both the Dream Big Wind Curls just two different sizes. I got the 1000 ml and the 500 ml sizes for my friend and myself. I also ordered the bottle brush and the funnel (for easier pouring). However, the funnel is not necessarily needed for me since we use a water filter jug in the fridge and it has a smaller spout that fits perfect with this bottle. The glass is thick, really thick. The mouthpiece is easy to use. The cap easy but sturdy.

Overall, I am super excited. This is better for the environment and better for my health! I will keep you informed on my thoughts as time passes…for now its all love…

Oh, the Love Bottle…

In my journey greenward I decided I could not continue drinking water from plastic water bottles–even if I reuse it for a few weeks each time. They are bad for the environment. They are bad for our health. They even say that using plastic water bottles over and over can cause the plastic to break down and plastic is linked to breast cancer and other nervous disorders. So, why take a chance? With my health and with the environment?

The next step was to figure out what to use instead. I don’t want to go plastic–even hard plastic. This eliminates many of the reusable water bottles. I don’t want to go stainless steel because I do not care for the metallic taste that goes along with it.

GLASS! That’s the ticket! I thought I would buy a glass drink and reuse the bottle but before I decided to do that–I thought I’d google “glass water bottle” and guess what?!?!

I found the perfect reusuable, earth-friendly, most adorable water bottles! The LOVE BOTTLE!

Not only are they eco-friendly…but they are sweet. They are feel good products. Here is what the website said about their bottles:

Love bottle is a reusable glass water bottle made partially from recycled glass. It has a ceramic swing top lid that creates a water-tight seal.

Words and pictures carry energy that affect water. Different words can create beautiful water crystals – I like to call it “supercharged” water. Every printed bottle has the word “love” on it, charging your water with the energy of love.

Now, I do not know if I believe words can change the properties of water but it can change a mood, an attitude, a thought. If I am having a bad moment and I get a drink and see “LOVE” on my water bottle…I am likely to smile and remember there are many worthwhile moments. =)

This is the perfect start to my new greener journey. I will let you know what I think about it when it arrives!
