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 [2] 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 [3] has one ingenious solution: Sheathe the glass in bamboo. The result is a reusable bottle [4] that’s as chemically inert as it is beautiful. We’re in love.
