What is the new Lifefactory Beverage Bottle?
In Lifefactory's first major product line extension, they have introduced a product for adults: a 22 ounce (650ml) glass bottle with a removable silicone sleeve that is ideal for people who carry water with them in the car, outdoors, in the office, or at the gym-or even for use at home. If you typically use bottled water, the Lifefactory Beverage Bottle is perfect for you.
How is the Lifefactory Beverage Bottle different from (and better than) plastic or metal reusable bottles?
First and foremost, it's glass, which means it's free of BPA, phthalate, PVC, and polycarbonate-nothing can leach into your water or other beverage in a glass bottle. Glass is also taste-neutral; no plastic or metallic taste will affect your beverage. The patent-pending silicone sleeve adds a distinctive touch to each bottle, and makes the bottle easier to grip and helps protect it from breakage. The silicone sleeve is also non-toxic and plastic-free. Finally, the wide-mouth design makes it easy to fill (add your own ice, citrus slices, tea bags, etc.), easy to drink from, and easy to clean.
What are the benefits of glass? Why should I buy a glass bottle over a plastic or metal one?
Glass has been a trusted material for centuries. It is one of the greenest materials on the planet and is 100% recyclable. And it is safe: You don't have to worry about BPA, lead, or other chemicals that can leach into liquids from plastic bottles. Moreover, water and beverages will taste better coming out of a glass bottle because glass is taste neutral--no unpleasant plastic or metallic taste. Those are the benefits to you. But using a Lifefactory reusable glass bottle also benefits the environment. Bottled water creates enormous quantities of waste. You'll save money and Earth's resources if you don't buy bottled water.Where are Lifefactory bottles made?
Lifefactory beverage and baby bottles are custom made in France. Beverage bottle silicone sleeves are made in the United States, and polypropylene plastic caps are made in Poland. Baby bottle sleeves and plastic parts are made to meet Lifefactory's exacting standards in China, supervised by a reputable agency from Singapore. All components are FDA-approved and are compliant with US, Canadian, and European safety standards. The glass and plastic parts are recyclable, and the silicone can be sent back to us where it can be re-ground to make outdoor playground mats or mats for barn animals.Why do Lifefactory bottles have a silicone sleeve?
Lifefactory's patent-pending silicone sleeves were designed not only to look stylish but also to protect the bottles and help prevent them from breaking. The material and design combine to improve the bottle's tactile quality and grip, which prevents bottles from becoming slick with condensation (or sweat, for athletes) and reduces the potential for breakage.What are the sleeves on Lifefactory bottles made of?
Lifefactory's sleeves are made of silicone, which is non-toxic and has been strength-tested for durability. Silicone is made from silica, the most common constituent of sand. It is a great alternative to plastics, which can leach chemicals, and to rubber or latex, which some people are allergic to.
Does Lifefactory sell its sleeves separately? Do the sleeves fit on other bottles?
A Lifefactory bottle is the combination of a glass bottle and complementary silicone sleeve designed in tandem. Lifefactory only sells the complete package because that's the only way to ensure the sleeve fits perfectly-plus it's the only way Lifefactory could attain their exceptional standards of quality. That's why they don't sell sleeves separately. They could never be sure that they would fit other bottles precisely.
How do I wash the bottle?
All components of every Lifefactory bottle-the glass bottle itself as well as the sleeve and cap (or nipple)-are dishwasher safe or can be hand washed.
Can I put boiling water in my beverage bottle to make tea? Can I put the beverage bottle filled with water in the freezer?
Lifefactory beverage bottles are made from soda lime glass. This is the same container glass used for wine bottles and other food storage containers. It is strong but not impervious to rapid temperature changes or impact. Like any bottle, it will expand and crack if left in the freezer or hit with boiling water. Lifefactory baby bottles are made from borosilicate glass. Borosilicate glass is known for its superior durability, chemical and heat resistance, and is excellent for use in chemical laboratory equipment and cookware. This allows the baby bottle to go from the freezer to boiling water pot without incident.
Do you need to take the sleeve off to wash a Lifefactory bottle?
No, you can leave the sleeve on the bottle and wash the whole thing in the dishwasher. If you wish to remove the sleeve, it comes off best in warm, soapy water.
At Lifefactory, safety is their #1 concern. All Lifefactory products go through rigorous testing and score well above the industry standard for chemical content and durability.
