Who said CB2
gets to have all the good green fun? Although Crate & Barrel is more traditional than its stylin’ sister company, these Glass Beverage Bottles
give the homewares giant an eco-edge. In the tradition of the I Am Not a Paper Cup Cup,
the refillable glass water bottles are an eco-friendly facsimile of the real deal. The bottles, with a nod to Italian design house Seletti
, come with a silicone stopper to keep your H2O fresh and are ideal for the dining room table and bedside. According to the Clean Air Council
, Americans throw away 2.5 million plastic beverage bottles every hour. By sippin' out of these glass doppelgangers instead of tearing through disposables, you’ll help lower that staggering number bit by bit.
Glass Beverage Bottles @ Crate & Barrel (50 ounces, $15.95; 22 ounces, $7.95).
