The trend away from plastic bottles and towards glass bottles to handle our daily hydration needs is definitely on the up.

The environmental benefit of reusable glass over plastic is not the only reason glass water bottles are so popular.

Refilling your bottle at home is far cheaper than buying a new plastic one every day. Also, drinking from glass bottles keeps you healthier because you're staying away from the chemicals found in some plastics, including BPS, BPA, and phthalates.

While this is certainly a matter of personal preference, glass bottle enthusiasts also insist that water tastes better out of glass bottles.

We can hear people who are new to the idea of carrying a glass water bottle around asking, "That's great, but won't it break?". The short answer is probably not.

Glass manufacturing has come a long way, and high-quality glass bottles are inherently stronger than they used to be. Also, they normally come with a protective covering, which significantly reduces the risk of breakage.

We've put together a list of hot-trending options in this latest craze for reusable glass water bottles. We hope the craze is here to stay!

Ello Syndicate BPA-free Glass Water Bottle with Flip Lid

This 20-ounce water bottle that comes in eight different colors with a detachable wrist strap is perfect for car travel, taking to the gym, and more. It has a locking, one-touch flip lid that lets you drink from a glass rim instead of a plastic one.

A silicone sleeve protects it from chips and cracks. Since all of the bottle's parts are dishwasher-safe, there's no need to remove the sleeve when cleaning. The bottle carries an Ello lifetime guarantee.

ZULU Atlas Glass Water Bottle with Silicone Sleeve

Also holding 20 ounces, this bottle has a narrower diameter and is designed with athletes in mind. The silicone sleeve, which comes in seven different colors, provides impact protection and a no-slip grip. It has a one-touch, push-button lid with a lock and is completely leak-proof. All parts are BPA-free, and ZULU bottles come with a lifetime guarantee.

Purifyou Premium Glass Water Bottle with Non-Slip Silicone Sleeve and Stainless Steel Lid Insert

Origin Best BPA-Free Water Bottle with Protective Silicone Sleeve and Bamboo Lid

Origin's BPA-free, heat-resistant glass with a bamboo lid has a nice natural look and feel. Although the bottle itself is dishwasher-safe, the bamboo lid needs to be washed by hand and is guaranteed for 90 days with free replacement if it breaks.

This bottle has been rated as having the best mouth size for no-spill drinking. The leak-proof lid has food-grade silicone O-rings so that no liquid comes into contact with or picks up the chemical taste of plastic.

Origin donates 2% of its revenue to a non-profit water-well drilling project in rural Ghana to help address the most persistent needs of those living in extreme poverty in that area. Your purchase helps save lives by providing clean water for the residents there.
