I bought myself a pretty new glass reuseable water bottle on Friday, which I have been wanting for a while. I saw it at World Market a few weeks ago but decided to not do the impulse-buy thing and left without it. However, I was reading an article in my newest issue of Glamour about the dangers of plastics and the toxins and BPA levels in our food and water. Needless to say, it freaked me out. I decided I want to reduce my use of plastic as much as I can. I can’t go plastic-free, but I can reduce my exposure somewhat.
So I went back to the store and bought my pretty new bottle, (and by the way please ignore the fingerprints in this picture!) and couldn’t wait to take it home, scrub it out and fill it with cold, refreshing BPA-free water. The problem though is that my lovely new bottle leaks like a mothereffer. At the top, where the lid screws on. There’s a rubber washer between the glass and the bottle top, but water still seeps out and drips down the front of my shirt every time I take a sip. I’m probably just going to take off the top and use it without it, but since it isn’t really practically and convenient that way, it looks like I just bought myself a pretty new $9.99 tall glass.
