With more people moving away from using disposable and plastic water bottles, glass bottles have become popular as an eco-friendly alternative. While glass bottles can be heavier and more fragile than other types, they’re usually dishwasher-safe, easy to use, odor and stain-resistant, and won’t transfer flavors. To help prevent breaking when they’re bumped or dropped, most glass water bottles come with some type of protective sleeve.
Whether you’re looking for a glass water bottle for home, work, the gym, or when you’re on the go, there are lots of quality and durable options. Check out our round-up of the top glass water bottles to find the perfect one for you.
