Stay hydrated with these perfect companions!
You do not need an expert or in-depth research to tell you that plastic waste is growing in large amounts in several parts of the world. It makes up a large percentage of the total waste that we dump on a regular basis. Plastic bottled water is a very commonly consumed product and that contributes a lot to the trash count. That is why reusability is a major characteristic that we should look for in products that we buy so we can help in our own little way to conserve the environment by not adding to the waste.
Fortunately, reusable water bottles are now in trend. There are numerous reasons why these glass water bottles are the best purchase you could make. It’s a good alternative to stainless tumblers because sometimes stainless steel can leave a distinct taste to the water. Of course, we are actively trying to avoid plastic bottles. Glass is high-quality and not to mention stylish. Read on because we have jotted down some of the best glass water bottles we found in all shapes, sizes, and uses.
We’re excited to give you the run-down on the best glass water bottles so without delay, here they are.
Our top picks for glass water bottles
ZULU Atlas Glass Water Bottle
For our first pick, we have the ZULU Atlas. It only takes a single press of a button on its lid for it to open and flip it open and close which makes for total convenience. However, the capacity is only 20 ounces. It won’t hold a lot and will definitely need frequent refills. It does have a silicone sleeve on which provides added protection. The bottle is not entirely made of glass. But the non-glass parts are guaranteed BPA-free and safe for the dishwasher. You can choose from six color variants. All in all, the ZULU Atlas is a combination of convenience and style.
- Carry loop
- Locking flip lid
- Protective silicone sleeve
- Hinge pin requires occasional adjustments
Glasstic Shatterproof Glass Water Bottle, 16oz
- The Last Water Bottle You'll Ever Buy! - Don't even think about buying another glass water bottle
- Our unique patented design is shatterproof, safe and accepted in most places glass is normally prohibited
- Glasstic comes with world class customer service and is backed by our industry leading warranty - See our reviews online
- Pure glass insert inside a protective plastic shell - BPA/BPS Free, lead free, cadmium free, toxin-free, worry free!
- Leak Proof Flip Cap Lid with Handle and Lock. All 16oz lids are interchangeable with all other Glasstic Products
You could probably infer from the name that this glass water bottle is a little different from the competition, and you’d be right!
Glasstic has effectively merged all of the advantages of glass and plastic bottles into a single packaging. You have safety and wonderful flavor along with a contaminate-free inside glass insert to contain your delicious beverages and a plastic outer shell to protect the glass.
Normally, you are not permitted to bring glass water bottles to a swimming pool or beach. However, such is not the case with this one because the plastic outer shell will contain any fracture if it occurs.
It has two walls.
The flip cap is useful.
It is available in a range of hues.
Because of its small size, the bottle is extremely portable.
The protective outer shell increases weight (but contains broken glass)
Design is not for everyone.
Equa Large Water Bottle
The EQUA comes at a close second. We simply loved the versatility of this glass water bottle that is suitable for busy office days and strenuous gym sessions. Because of the premium choice of borosilicate glass, your water is free from unpleasant taste and odor and there is an added temperature retention due to the insulation provided by the outer layer of felt covering.
The lid is a conventional twist on and off cap lined with silicone to prevent spills but still does not affect water taste. EQUA is designed in such a way that it goes well with different scenarios, may it be in the office or in the gym, on the desk or beside the exercise machine. There are four different color variants that you can choose from to fit your preference.
- Versatile style
- Easy-grip cloth outer covering
- Reliable glass type
- Non-removable cover
Kablo Glass Water Bottle

This is our personal pick for those on a budget but still want to have a quality glass water bottle.
The Contigo Purity, albeit its affordable price, is completely devoid of plastic components which is not common for those sold in the market today. The slim shape of the bottle makes it easy to place in conventional cup holders and backpack pockets. Even though the lid may not be its best feature, we still appreciate the sustainable approach and simple style.
Contigo’s glass water bottle has outstanding Amazon reviews and no plastic pieces, which is a huge bonus from an environmental standpoint. The top is composed of stainless steel and the sleeve is made of food-grade silicone. It has a larger mouth opening, which is perfect for putting in ice and allowing for faster hydration. This water bottle’s body and lid are top-rack dishwasher safe, making it less durable than other options but still easy to clean.
- Zero plastic parts
- Narrow mouth for easy drinking on the go
- Less durable due to large portion of exposed glass
- Heavier than conventional bottles
- Lid design is not the most optimal and convenient
Ello Syndicate Glass Water Bottle, 20-oz
Convenience? Check. Ello has a touch-to-open flip lid for easy drinking without use of a nozzle or straw. The entire bottle is safe for the dishwasher, even the silicone sleeve that is wrapped around the base for grip and protection.
We prefer this bottle for everyday on-the-go use. For busybodies, having a water bottle that constantly leaks is a total inconvenience. The Ello Syndicate can be a great companion for those who are always on the move. The lid is secure enough to prevent leaks and can be opened with one hand. The only drawback that really made us think twice is its unattractive style that is not appealing to the sights.
- Lockable & leak-proof flip lid
- Ergonomic size & shape
- Spout is easy to drink from while on the go
- Unattractive style and design
Tronco Glass Tumbler, 20-oz.

- All parts BPA/BPS free and top rack dishwasher-safe. Do not microwave. Do not freeze.
Tronco is a stylish water bottle to have by your side on busy work days when you would just spend the entire day at your desk. It comes with a straw for easy drinking. The lid can either be screwed on like a mason jar style or it can be a removable cap. We would not recommend this for on-the-go use. Tronco is also safe for dishwashers and can be used by both kids and adults because of its simple, minimalist design.
We love the fact that it is designed simply and in a minimalist way without too much eye candy which makes it perfect for all ages. It looks great as a work companion by your desk with the straw and perfect size and shape for iced coffee. Because of its easy accessibility provided by the straw, we actually end up drinking more fluids than usual without feeling too bloated because of drinking too much at once – just little sips every now and then. Sustainable, food-grade material, no lingering taste to affect the content – Tronco is a great contender for home use.
- Simple and minimalist
- Comes with two straws

- Not as durable as other bottles though this isn’t a big concern

A close competitor to the Ello Syndicate, the Yomious Water Bottle may be the next best thing to bring in your next busy day. The bamboo lid prevents leaks and the silicone sleeve protects the body of the bottle. High quality borosilicate glass is temperature-resistant as well.
he temperature resistant characteristic of the Yomious Glass Water Bottle makes it great for both hot and cold drinks. The silicone sleeve provides protection for both you and the bottle but it does not entirely cover the whole body of the bottle, leaving out a little bit of the top portion exposed. The wooden bamboo lid’s design is a nice contrast to the solid color and gives it a sustainable touch.
- Sturdy glass material
- No plastic touches water
- Dishwasher safe (except for lid)
- Lid requires manual handwashing
Origin Glass Water Bottle, 22-oz
The Origin Glass water bottle is available. Each bottle manufacturer adds their own personality to the water bottle concept, and for Origin, that personality is evident in the spill-proof bamboo twist cap.
The glass itself is a simple design that comes in a variety of sizes (14, 22, 32 oz) to meet a variety of demands, and it is wrapped in a thick silicone protective cover. There are thirteen different colors to select from, but we choose coastal Green.
As an extra benefit, the Origin team has opted to donate a portion of the proceeds from each of their bottles to a nonprofit that builds wells in Ghana, where poverty and a lack of safe drinking water have become crippling issues.

Why choose a glass water bottle?
Leaching is a phenomenon that occurs in plastic containers where the surface of the plastic adheres to the content. This doesn’t happen in glass. Therefore, the water stored in glass is not at risk of recontamination from the bottle. The chemical BPA is used in the manufacture of plastic materials. It is an endocrine-disruptor that can cause dysfunctions in the normal production and regulation of your hormones, and lead to unwanted side effects.
Even though plastics that are manufactured today do not commonly contain that compound anymore, plastic is still prone to deterioration and corrosion especially when exposed to liquids of high acidity. Glass is unreactive to acids and alkalines and therefore does not have any reaction to any kind of liquid that it contains. Glass also has an ability to retain temperatures for a long period of time. However, the biggest concern when it comes to glass containers is its breakability. Glass is the most fragile kind of container so you have to be extra careful when handling it. But not to worry, because there are aids to help with that. Some glass bottles have a rubber or silicone sleeve on their bottles for protection and better grip.
Glass Water Bottles VS. Plastic Water Bottles
Reusability is the number one highlight of glass water bottles. With the right care, they last for a really long time. They come in a variety of designs along with different features and styles that suit various preferences.
- Glass does not leach. It does not contain that many chemicals upon manufacture that tend to leak onto the content of the bottle.
- Glass does not alter the taste of water.
- Glass is easy to clean and generally safe for dishwashers.
- Glass is not prone to discoloration or fading. It retains its appearance.
- Glass is reusable and environment-friendly.
The consumption of plastic water bottles increases every year and it is estimated that by the end of 2021, half a trillion tons of plastic bottles will be consumed. And out of these numbers, only a small percentage is recycled while the rest are disposed either in landfills or the oceans. The enormous amounts of plastic waste grows and cannot be managed with the current recycling efforts. They are a hazard to the environment and one of the top destroyers of nature. Simply using glass water bottles and not adding to the waste can be our little contribution towards managing this problem.
Criteria for Great Glass Water Bottles
Before we get into the product reviews, allow us to educate you first on the things you need to factor in when looking for the ultimate glass water bottle that works for you.
What is your main purpose for the water bottle? Do you need it for your daily workouts or just a regular companion to carry when you’re out and about? Or is it just for your desk while you’re working? Regardless, your main purpose sets the tone on the features that you need in a water bottle.
Glass water bottles aren’t necessarily too expensive and the ones we listed here are pretty affordable as well. But you still need to decide how much you are willing to spend on one.
Yes, glass is more fragile than stainless and plastic. But there are coated glass material nowadays that makes glass more sturdy and also glass water bottles most of the time come with a silicon sleeve or wrap that serves as protection for the water bottle and to make gripping easier as well because silicon isn’t prone to slipping. Durable glass water bottles: Purifyou Premium Glass Bottle and Yomious Glass Bottle
We are making it a mission to reduce plastic consumption. Glass is one of the best alternatives we have for that. Also, glass bottles do not have the tendency to leach onto the content, are resistant to stain, and do not impart any unpleasant taste to the water.
If you’re bringing the bottle while you’re out, then you might be more comfortable with a lightweight water bottle like the Yomious Glass Bottle, Purifyou Premium Glass Bottle, Tronco Glass Tumbler, and Contigo Purity.
Of course, we always like products that are visually appealing to us and fits our taste in style and design. The Yomious Glass Bottle and Tronco Glass Tumbler are in our opinion, the most stylish ones.
We made sure that the majority of the glass water bottles we are going to suggest are dishwasher-safe. But if you do not have a dishwasher or would prefer manual handwashing, the HydroFlask Bottle Brush and some Hydrapak Bottle Bright Cleaning Tablets may come in handy for cleaning your water bottle. A home remedy we can suggest is making a solution of hot water, dish soap, and a couple of pinches of rock salt, pour into the bottle and give it a good shake.
In relation to the one above, there are some glass bottles that should only be cleaned by hand and are not suitable for dishwashers. Take note of the care instructions for the bottle when you buy one so you know how to handle it properly.
Lid and Mouth Type
The common types of lids in glass bottles are screw lids and flip tops. Flip tops are usually designed for easy access which works for bottles designed for outdoor and sports use. Screw lids can be great for those who prefer style over convenience. The size of the mouth should also be wide enough to make refilling easy from whatever water source and at the same time not be prone to spills and leaks especially during rigorous movement. There are glass bottles with a silicone or rubber lining in the lid to help secure it and also stop any leaks or spills. A wide-mouthed bottle can also allow you to put in ice cubes or fruits that you may like in your drinks.
Versatility in carrying
Glass water bottles are generally made for portability. Great features or accessories to look for are straps, no-slip sleeve, easy grip, and easy fit for most cup holders. Carry straps are usually tied somewhere in the neck, between the mouth and both of the bottle. You can wear the loop around your wrist or tie it to a backpack. A good grip is also a bonus if you prefer holding the bottle. Some inconveniently-shaped bottles that are made more for aesthetic purposes may strain your hand when carrying them or they may not fit in standard cup holders like the ones in cars or bike cages.
FAQs About Glass Water Bottles
Lastly, we will be answering some of the most common questions by consumers about glass water bottles.
Are glass water bottles a better choice than plastic?
Solid yes. Aside from the obvious fact that glass bottles are reusable, they are also BPA-free, chemical-free, and do not leach onto the content of the bottle. The taste of the drink you put in does not linger in the bottle.
Can you put hot water in a glass water bottle?
There are glass bottles that are made with more temperature-resistant materials that can accommodate hot drinks. But in general, glass bottles are intended for cold drinks. There are bottles made to cater both hot and cold temperatures, just check the product description beforehand.

Are there advantages to different types of protective sleeves?
Silicone is the most common material when it comes to protective glass bottle sleeves. It is the most compatible and durable kind to use in terms of design and convenience.
Silicone sleeve is the most popular form of sleeve found on the best glass water bottles. The material’s durability, combined with its attractive appearance and feel, makes it the ideal alternative for protecting a glass bottle.
However, they are not all the same. Some are designed to be removable, while others are not.

What kind of glass should i get?
When it comes to material composition, you may have observed that the best glass water bottles on our list are composed of borosilicate glass.
Because this glass is very resistant to temperature changes, you may go from an icy drink to boiling tea in a matter of seconds without fear of your glass bottle shattering. If you see a bottle design you like that is made of borosilicate glass, it is always a good pick. Otherwise, make certain that the glass you select is from a reputable manufacturer and is thick enough to resist normal, everyday wear and tear.
Is there such a thing as the perfect size?
Another factor to consider is the size of the bottle. Some people choose a bottle that is large enough to meet their hydration needs with a single refill during the day, while others prefer more portable options. The diameter and height of the bottle you’re contemplating will assist you determine if it will fit into your lifestyle. Sizes range from 14 ounces to 32 ounces, and occasionally even higher, so it’s critical to pick a glass water bottle that you’ll be able to use comfortably
Does it make a difference which lid i use?
Yes, is the quick response. Absolutely. Lids exist in a variety of shapes and sizes, and the one you choose should be determined by how you intend to use it.
Screw-on caps are some of the best lids for near-guaranteed leak-proof performance. Because of its inherent dependability, this lid type is used on a large number of bottles. One thing to keep in mind is the material used to make the cap. Some water bottle manufacturers use materials that impart a metallic taste to the water, defeating the point of purchasing a glass bottle in the first place. Others make caps out of several sections that readily come apart over time, while still others don’t use any seals to ensure leak-proofness.
Other frequent lid styles include flip-top caps (with and without locking mechanisms), screw-on solutions with spouts (with and without straws), and certain fiction-fit press on style lids. The greatest of all the versions you’ll find will be leak-proof, but each category will also have its fair share of pretenders. Read the reviews to see what kinds of experiences other people have had with the same cap styles.
