A better and greener alternative to plastic: LIFEFACTORY Glass Bottles and food storage

A greener life for a healthier and better life.

I am totally convinced about it but it is not always easy to switch for many reasons: the cost being one of them. Not easy also to decide for what alternative to go.

A thing is sure for us, we are tired to see a bin full of plastic bottles! So few years ago we stopped buying mineral water and we used plastic jars! I know, very silly indeed. As I said switching to green alternatives is sometimes more expensive and we have to wait. We do things little by little.

With the arrival of Baba3, soon now, we have chosen to go for Glass baby bottles and Glass water bottles for us too. I have looked as usual into the web to find out the solution that will suit us best. I have found Lifefactory.

Before committing to the entire range, we wanted to try first and see how a bottle works and resists. A glass bottle in a baby/toddler/child hand might be frightening, don’t you think?

REVIEW OF the Lifefactory  16 oz Glass Bottle with Flip Cap


LIFEFACTORY

We have been lucky to test a 16 oz {475 ml} Spring Green Glass bottle with a flip cap*.

Lifefactory 16 oz Glass bottle with Flip Cap

When I received it, I have been impressed by the design and will say the strength of the bottle. The silicone sleeve is quite useful and I liked it as I am well known to be a bit clumsy.

The features of the Bottle:

  • The Flip Cap provides a narrow-mouth spout for on-the-go drinking. The medical-grade silicone flip top seals with the polypropylene (PP#5) cap.
  • The pivoting handle provides a great way to carry the bottle and stows out of the way while drinking.
  • Wide-mouth access makes it easy to add ice cubes or fresh fruit. Slim and mobile.
  • The 475ml travels wells and looks great doing it. The silicone flip top seals when plugged but is not upside-down, bottom-of-the-bag leakproof.
  • Dishwasher safe (place cap on top rack/no need to remove silicone sleeve)

Lifefactory 16 oz Glass bottle with Flip CapThe Pros:

I love the bottle, the design, the sturdiness. I use mine indoors and outdoors. Because it is glass, I can put juice, smoothies and it won’t let any after taste/smell in the bottle. It fits perfectly in our fridge and freezer. The cap is totally leak proof. I doubted this one when I first saw and had the bottle in my hand. I was wrong. Lifefactory keeps its engagement.

I brought it everywhere: the beach, the park, for my hubby jogging!

The Cons:

I do not like the narrow-mouth spout. There is something on it that disturbs me. it is completely personal as hubby is absolutely not disturbed by it! I can use it and enjoy it but it is not my type. I prefer the straw cap 🙂


Video demo of the Lifefactory Range


We have been so impressed by the Glass bottle that we decided to purchase the Baby bottles and the food storage. We are going to expend our little collection  but first let me show you all of them in a very short video.


The Full range is available to buy at Planet Organic which is one of our favorite shop!

Note : I have been sent the product with * mentioned in this post for this review purpose and did this review because I wanted to, no  financial compensation was received for doing it.  It was my choice and my selection to talk about Lifefactory. No one has told me what to write, all words (including spelling mistakes) and opinions are 100% my own and genuine.
