The Ultimate Guide To Reusable Bottles

Australians churn through more than 118k tonnes of plastic drink bottles every year - that’s around 373 million plastic water bottles... for a population of only 25 million. To produce a single litre plastic bottle, you need 3 litres of water and one litre of oil. All for a product designed to consume and throw away after one use.

Of course, some are recycled. Roughly 20%. The majority end up finding a home in landfill where you will need the passage of father time to break them down.

When littered they often end up in the sea. Here they contribute towards giant garbage patches that span the width of entire nations or break down into microplastics that find their way into our food chain.

With that said, it’s probably time for you to invest in a good reusable bottle. Something that will be as essential as that morning phone, keys and wallet check before you leave the house every morning. There are four main type of options to choose from:


Plastic Reusable 

Plastic Reusable Bottle

Not all plastic bottles are designed to be used and thrown away immediately. Different types of plastic allow for a more sustainable choice. Although these bottles are cheap and cheerful, they accumulate mould and bacteria. Often this is followed by a delightful odour . You’ll end up needing to replace these bottles frequently unless you intend on becoming an expert cleaner.



Glass Reusable Bottle

Bottles made of glass won’t leach any chemicals and are dishwasher safe. While they do come in trendy designs, the pros list doesn’t extend much further. Unless you have the coordination of Ricky Ponting circa 2005 or the gracefulness of Ash Barty, there’s a pretty good chance that you’ll let one slip and down she goes. Prone to heating up and much heavier than other bottles, forget about travelling with glass bottles in your backpack too. They’re definitely not recommended for children (or uncoordinated adults for that matter).



Aluminum Glass Bottle

A better alternative to glass or plastic, these types of bottles are lightweight and easy to carry. They’re affordable and lightweight to carry around. Unfortunately, these bottles need a plastic lining that contains chemicals, dent when dropped and often leave a bitter, metallic aftertaste.


Stainless Steel 

Stainless Steel Reusable Bottle

The creme de la creme of the bottle world. Bottles made from stainless steel are at the top of the range. It’s true. They’re much more expensive than any other type of bottle and do tend to be a little bit more of an investment. But if you’re looking for a sustainable, long lasting bottle -  It needs to be made from stainless steel. Often capped off with a beautiful matte finish, insulated and vacuumed sealed versions of this bad boy will retain heat or cold liquids for a long period of time. Many of these bottles, however, are hard to clean and do tend to collect bacteria and emit odours too.
