I have heard before, over and over in fact, that drinking from plastic has negative results. There are all sorts of things that leech from plastic into your drinks. Plus it can even affect the taste of what you are drinking. Some plastics are worse than others but it is my understanding that none of them are totally safe for long term use. Because of what I know, while I am home I drink filtered tap water in a glass made of glass. However, as you might have guessed, I am way too clumsy to take that on the road with me.
Glasstic seems like it was made for someone like me! It is a glass travel cup made in a way that it is me proof. This glass container has a plastic outer-shell and I can attest that you can drop it. Now I am not recommending you toss this lovely travel cup on the ground but like I said I am clumsy and I have dropped it. Not only did not shatter or crack I couldn't even find any marks from it being dropped. Had it shattered the plastic outer-shell would have contained the mess making it a safer clean up at least.
Since your drink is in the glass part you get no strange tastes from plastic and no toxins leeching into your drink. I like to add things to my water, everything from lemon slices to essential oils and with a glass bottle I don’t have to worry about the oils dissolving into the plastic. The top has a neat handle that flips up so you can essentially carry this bottle with just a finger or two. I have never had a metal or plastic travel cup that was that easy to carry.
Speaking of caps the cap unscrews so you can easily fill and clean your bottle. It can be cleaned like I do with a bottle brush or you can toss it in the dishwasher. Another great feature on the cap is the wide mouth and the lock. I love the lock! When I dropped it, it was locked so the lid didn't pop open, spilling my drink. Plus I am forever kicking over my cup in the car and the lock means I won’t be sopping up water from my foot as well as in car any more - I told you I was clumsy.
