Two materials — bamboo and glass — set the bottle apart from others in the market. Unlike plastic or metal, glass does not affect the water's taste or leach any chemicals into the water. The bamboo outer shell is stylish, insulating, and durable. Sheathed in the bamboo shell, the glass bottle can be dropped to the ground without breaking.
Thanks to a temperature- and flavor-resistant glass interior, this elegant beverage bottle from Bamboo Bottle Company makes a fine vessel for your morning tea or coffee and a great afternoon decanter. The ultra-sustainable bamboo shell insulates and protects, so you can keep this bottle in your collection for a very long time. Meanwhile, take satisfaction in all the paper cups and plastic water bottles you’re no longer using.
The Earthy Pick: Bamboo Bottle. Although the Bamboo Bottle is not really meant for fitness buffs, who’s to say that earthy girls don’t hit the gym? This water bottle is actually made from Phyllostachys Pubescens bamboo (also known as Moso and Mau Tzu). FYI, eco-friendly folks, harvesting bamboo minimally impacts wildlife.
Finally, a water bottle that's stylish and has every quality you want - taste-free, chemical-free and virtually indestructible. The glass core is protected by a sheath of hand-selected, hand-cut bamboo that's as renewable as the water you fill it with.
Americans consume 1,500 plastic water bottles every second - most end up in the landfill. The Bamboo Bottle is a clean, safe alternative made from sustainable harvested bamboo and recycled glass.
As if the reusable water bottle market isn't crowded enough, a new company has sprouted up to sell the world a canister made out of bamboo -- a material most of us associate with bad resort furniture and tchotkes in Chinatown.
But the Bamboo Bottle manages to look pretty sleek. Moreover, it's smart use of an under-appreciated material. Bamboo is a natural insulator. It's also lightweight. Best of all, it's ridiculously abundant, which means you never have to worry about overharvesting. The species used here grows 90 feet in nine months.
Personally, I get nervous about using those refillable water bottles with such tiny spouts that it's hard to clean inside. So I love Bamboo Bottle Company's design that has a wider mouth, which makes for easy scrubbing access. Other selling points: the comfortable grip on the lid and BPA-free, renewable glass bottle and bamboo sleeve that keep cold drinks cold and hot stuff hot - stylish.
Meet Bamboo Bottle, made from glass and sustainably harvested bamboo by Bamboo Bottle Co., so it’s free of chemicals found in hard plastic water bottles, like bisphenol A (BPA). The bottle’s insulation allows you to sip hot or cold beverages. And don’t let breakable glass scare you off: It’s totally concealed inside the bamboo shell, making the bottle more than durable enough to tote around the gym. A straw hidden inside makes it easy to sip and keep moving during workouts.
Remember when Nalgene water bottles were all the rage? Then we learned about BPA and all the nasty stuff that plastic was leaking into our water. Since then the search for the perfect water bottled has continued. But a new design from the Bamboo Bottle Company is putting a new sleek face on guilt-free hydration.
What makes this water carrier so different and unique? First of all it is eco-conscious and environmentally friendly – from its BPA free glass insert to the fact that they burn their logo into their product instead of using adhesives. Yes, it is the little steps and actions we take that make big differences long term.
Given a choice, I prefer to drink water out of a glass container. Glass doesn't leach harmful chemicals like plastic, it adds no flavor to the water like metal sometimes does and I just like the way it feels. That's why I'm groovin' on this new glass bottle from the Bamboo Bottle Company. The glass part is encased in a pretty bamboo sleeve, so it's safe from breakage.
For starters the design is very sleek and beautiful as well as eco friendly. While it does have some plastic pieces, most water bottles do, even most stainless steel ones. This bottle has something that makes it uniquely different though ... the outer shell is made of a silky smooth bamboo and the inner compartment that holds the water, is made of sturdy glass. Bamboo is eco friendly because it is fast growing (unlike wood) and sustainable. The glass used to make the bottle is comprised of 51% recycled glass and it remains remains 100% recyclable. The plastic pieces are BPA free. I love the fact that it looks like a wood bottle and that it is actually glass with a protective covering.
We particularly like the Bamboo Bottle. In addition to using an all glass body that is dishwasher safe and BPA free, it sports a bamboo shell that should serve as a thin insulator, though the aesthetic is its core benefit. The plastic components, which make up the lid and bottom, are food grade and are also BPA free.
The Zen-inspiring bamboo sheath alone is worth the price of admission. Functionally, it's fitting for around the house (I love using mine with my glass straw). If I worked in an office, it would work fine and be quite the talking piece — it's so cool... just put your morning organic java or fresh pressed green juice in it before leaving the house. Then, enjoy the beverage once you arrive at your destination, in addition to reusing it throughout the whole day with refills of coffee, tea, water, or whatever beverage you desire.
Bamboo Bottle Company uses BPA free plastics, is dishwasher safe handles hot and cold liquids and will not allow chemicals to seep into your drink. I think the most impressive thing to me is that the holder is made out of bamboo and I have learned that bamboo is a responsible choice of materials as bamboo matures and is harvestable in 3-4 years time. Bamboo is also extremely strong, smooth and beautiful.
I was so excited to try one of these cool bottles from Bamboo Bottle Company for two reason. First, I am a huge fan of reusable bottles that kick the plastic bottles off of this planet. And two, I love bamboo and the amazing durable, sustainable and beautiful features of bamboo.
With fears of BPA rampant and the slightly metallic taste that comes with many aluminum reusable water bottles, glass bottles are all the rage. But maybe some of us are what could be defined as "klutzy." Maybe the very idea of having glass on our persons at all times makes Band-Aid sales spike. Enter Bamboo Bottle Company's Original Bamboo Bottle. A glass bottle encased in a break-resistant bamboo sheath (which also acts as insulation, keeping hot beverages hot and chilled ones ice cold), this is a glass bottle we can carry with confidence. Plus the bottle's sleek appearance might just make us look extra hip, which we don't mind.

The premier vegetarian lifestyle magazine, VegNews is pleased to announce the winners of the 2011 VegNews Magazine Best of Show Awards. With nearly 1,000 submissions at the industry's largest natural products trade show, Expo West, our team of editors tasted and debated all weekend long to determine this year's 12 hottest new vegetarian products.
Bamboo Water Bottle
The bamboo exterior makes this bottle stylish and one-of-a-kind.
The dishwasher-safe glass inside keeps your drinks safe and insulated. Overall, you have a clean, natural take on the classic water bottle. Order now, orders ship on December 1st.
Finally – a reusable glass bottle that doesn't pose a potential health threat. A die-hard BYOB girl, I usually stick with stainless, but it's so nice to have alternatives. Plus it can be hard to discount the no-impact cool of touting your water-filled glass mason jar to yoga class...
At least this was my thinking when I tried it. That was before I dropped the mason jar into the street, which happened to be in front of an elementary school. I spent the next 10 minutes extracting tiny shards of glass from damp tar, shuddering at the thought of a poor little 5-year-old with thin-soled shoes unnecessarily ending up in the emergency room when stainless steel bottle would have easily sufficed.
Yet equally disturbing is the fact that Americans buy an estimated 29.8 billion plastic water bottles every year and eight out of 10 of those will end up in already overflowing landfills. Not a pleasant thought.
So let's talk fabulous alternatives – Bamboo Bottle has upped the design ante with their cool new reusable bottle. It's actually the first ever bamboo and glass water bottle. Jill and I love the combination of the removable, dishwasher-safe, 60% recycled glass bottle encased in a simple bamboo sheath. Great for both hot and cold drinks, this definitely tops our list of green gift ideas this season.

Bamboo Water Bottle
The most strikingly beautiful new water bottle also gives you the purest drinking experience. Inside the bamboo shell is a 17-ounce glass bottle, which doesn’t contain BPA, doesn’t need a liner, and doesn’t retain the taste of liquids. The whole thing disassembles to throw in the dishwasher.

Bamboo Bottle: A Reusable Bottle Made From Bamboo and Glass
Bamboo Bottle Company launched a bamboo reusable bottle. The 17-oz. "Original" bamboo bottle is BPA-free and features environmentally friendly bamboo and glass construction with a stylish and functional design.
Because of the species' stability, hardness and strength, the bottles are made from Phyllostachys Pubescens bamboo (also known as Moso and Mau Tzu). The bamboo is grown and harvested in temperate conditions that allow it to grow to its maximum potential - 90 feet in 9 months. The harvesting method is by hand selection and hand cutting of the bamboo. This allows maturing and flowering strands to remain flourishing, and minimizes the impact on ground soil since no heavy machinery is used. Once cut, the bamboo will continue to grow. This selective cutting process leaves the soil and land in its best possible state. The bamboo outer acts as a natural insulator for hot or cold beverages while protecting the glass interior during activities and accidental drops.
The Bamboo Bottle Company uses an easily removable, dishwasher-safe, 60-percent recycled, durable glass interior, produced from completely natural substances and able to withstand active lifestyles. Unlike plastics and metals that can leach chemicals, the Bamboo Bottle Company’s BPA-free glass interior keeps liquids safe, clean tasting and insulated hot or cold. The stylish, patent-pending design allows for easy cleanup.
The cap, bottom and nut are dishwasher-safe, FDA food-grade approved, and made from BPA-free plastic that can be easily recycled and turned into other products. Both the Type II (HDPE) and Type IV (LDPE) can be turned into your local recycling center.
"We wanted to make a clean, great looking bottle you could drink hot or cold beverages from," said senior vice president Patrick Carland. "Clean to us meant the liquid had to taste great when drinking from the bottle, and the product had to respect the environment as much as possible. Bamboo and glass allow us to accomplish that goal. We hope to minimize our impact on the environment and increase reusable bottle awareness with the Bamboo Bottle Company."
Refillable glass bottle made from recycled glass and bamboo

The company uses dishwasher-safe, FDA food grade, BPA-free plastics called high and low density polyethylene to fasten the inner glass with the outer bamboo. The glass used in the bottle can be easily recycled while the bamboo is biodegradable. The Original can hold 500 ml or 17 fluid oz within and costs around $25 USD.

The Bamboo Bottle
Reusability is one of the important aspects of the Green Movement. Even if you are just an ordinary individual who cares for the environment. Using reusable items can help prevent you from contributing waste in the environment. For instance, reusable water bottles would help prevent adding plastic water bottle waste in the environment.
Reusable water bottles can also be stylish apart from being earth-friendly. Consider the unique Bamboo Bottle which is a glass water bottle encased in sturdy Phyllostachys Pubescens bamboo. This protects the glass bottle inside aside from providing a unique design aspect into the product. The Bamboo Bottle makes use of recyclable plastic for the cap and bottom which can also be easily recycled into other products instead of just being put to waste.

Bamboo Water Bottle To Hit Stores Soon
The Bamboo Original, a Bamboo and glass reusable water bottle to be made available in stores soon, may be one of the most sustainable bottles we have seen in a long time.
While glass bottles are healthy and safe in that they do not have even a chance of leaking chemicals, and eco-friendly in that they are non-toxic and recyclable, they are fragile and difficult to use when on-the-go.

Works of art at Outdoor Retailer 2010 Summer Market
A couple of years ago a group of businessmen, who were into the outdoors, thought there has to be another way to design a sturdy water bottle. Rather than making their product from metal or BPA free plastic, they figured people wanted to drink water from a glass container. To make it sturdy they insulated the glass with bamboo, forming the Bamboo Bottle Company. I stood by and watched one of the employees assemble the bottle and then drop it on the wood floor. Hearing the bamboo hit the ground my friend and I flinched, obviously the bottle didn't break, shatter, or crack.
The bamboo is harvested from sustainable bamboo forests in China. As for the glass bottle, 60% of it is made from recycled glass. The cap, top ring, and bottom are dishwasher safe and are 100% recyclable. Eventually the company hopes to make a bamboo bottle that is plastic free. The product is expected to launch October 15 to retailers.
Bamboo Bottle: A Reusable Bottle Made From Bamboo and Glass
With all the talk about BPA, phthalates, and other hinky chemicals that could potentially leach into our food and drink, it's no wonder that we're turning a gimlet eye to anything that passes through our lips. (Even coated aluminum isn't off the hook.) One material that has remained relatively unscathed, however, is glass — but its breakable nature makes it impractical as a portable receptacle. The Bamboo Bottle Company has one ingenious solution: Sheathe the glass in bamboo. The result is a reusable bottle that's as chemically inert as it is beautiful. We're in love.
The Reusable Bamboo Bottle Is Far Tougher Than It Looks
We've seen appealing-looking reusable water bottles before, but there's something particularly charming about the Bamboo Bottle. It's made of tough Phyllostachys Pubescens bamboo and will hold many hot and cold beverages without ever allowing chemicals to leach into your drink.
The bottle can be ordered now for $25.
If you can make a bike from bamboo, you sure as heck can make a bottle. But the eponymous Bamboo Bottle might surprise you. For example, you can't lop down a stand of shoots, hollow them out, and fill with water–there needs to be some kind of liner, in this case glass. And that perfect bamboo tube? It's actually strands of the plant broken down and then reconstituted in a mold. The result is a bottle that is beautiful, doesn't use BPA, and is dishwasher safe. It holds 17 ounces.
A New Guzzler Made of Glass and Grass by Bamboo Bottle Company
Is this what people have been clamoring for? A refillable glass bottle, protected by a sheath of fast growing, renewable bamboo.
When the scare over Bisphenol-A (BPA) in our drinking bottles was in full flight, folk were ditching their Nalgene BPA laden polycarbonate bottles in their droves. Camelbak offered their Tritan plastic. Many opted for Sigg's aluminium alternative (only to find that, prior to August 2008, it had been lined with a BPA film!) Others chose the stainless steel path, as espoused by the likes of Kleen Kanteen. Amongst all this materials angst there were calls for a robust, break resistant glass bottle.
The Bamboo Bottle Company appears to have been listening.
They make a bottle which has a full glass insert (albeit with a 60% recycled content), then to insulate the contents of the bottle and protect it from accidental drops they wrap it in a cylinder of Phyllostachys Pubescens bamboo. (apparently this species of bamboo grows 90 feet or 27+ metres in 9 months. To lock the glass inner to the bamboo outer (and to provide a sealing lid) they use dishwasher-safe, FDA food grade, BPA-free plastics: HDPE and LDPE (high and low density polyethylene)
The company say another reason to consider their bottle is that one hectare of bamboo scrubs 62 tons of carbon dioxide per year and generates up to 35% more oxygen than an equivalent stand of trees.
The glass can be readily recycled after its useful life. As can both those plastics. The bamboo is ultimately biodegradable.
How robust the combination is we don't know, but as the bottle debuted a few days ago, at the Outdoor Retailer trade show, and the company was created by outdoor industry types, one might expect it to be reasonably sturdy.
At this stage there is only model, the Original, which has a volume of 500 ml or 17 fluid oz, and a retail price of $25 USD, available online.
No detail is given on how much the glass/bamboo/plastic combo weighs in at, but it stands to reason it will be heavier than a thin walled metal or plastic bottle.
But kudos to the Bamboo Bottle Company for at least providing the alternative container that hydration junkies have been lusting after.
Nyberg's Picks: Best of Outdoor Retailer: Episode 1
It's hard to argue that there's a big problem with stainless steel bottles these days—except maybe the fact that they're everywhere. Still, one company daring to think outside the metallic cylinder is — The Bamboo Bottle Company! It sounds crazier than it is—the bottle is really glass, wrapped in an protective sheath of bamboo. Glass is taste and chemical free, and the bamboo armor makes it pretty much indestructible. But you'll want it mostly because it looks awesome. ($25).
