In an effort to drink more water I realized I was in need of a larger water bottle for my desk than my beloved Lifefactory bottle. I stumbled across the Be Truly You bottle in the window of a yoga studio and grabbed it. Be Truly You makes retro-style and urban styled sustainable, reusable, 100% recyclable glass water bottles. As I am sure all of you know a reuseable ecofriendly container is a million times better than the disposable plastic water bottles—whose cost and environmental impact from production, distribution and disposal is incredible. Personally, I am not a big fan of the reusable plastic and metal water bottles for the taste and the possible terrifying chemicals that leach out of re-usable plastic and metal water bottles into the water I am consuming. While my bottle honestly isn’t much different from a large Voss bottle, it does hold enough water to keep me hydrated, the opening fits ice cubes, and comes with a message reminding me to “celebrate each moment”.
Beyond the great bottle, the company has a standard of operations that makes conscious choices daily that reflect a commitment to their community and reduce their impact on the environment by patronizing local suppliers as often as possible to using environmentally friendly packaging materials. If you are in need they start at $18 and can be ordered online at BeTrulyYou.
