    Glass Water Bottles

    Water tastes fantastic from a glass water bottle. Our glass water bottles do not contain BPA, phthalates or any other plastic derived toxins. Plus, they are great for carrying flavoured drinks, as glass doesn’t absorb beverage flavours.

    While a glass water bottle will break if dropped, many companies like Lifefactory (pictured) and Camelbak, fit their glass water bottles with a protective sleeve to reduce the possibility of breakage.

    Great for:

    • Those who aren’t likely to drop their water bottles frequently
    • Love drinking flavoured drinks

    Stainless Steel Water BottlesHow to choose the right water bottle for you - Klean Kanteen

    Stainless steel water bottles will last a lifetime. The brands that we stock at Biome are beautifully crafted from one solid piece of food grade stainless steel. Additionally, they are not lined with petroleum derived sealants and leach no harmful toxins. An insulated stainless steel bottle such as those from Klean Kanteen (pictured) or S’well will keep cool liquids cool and warm liquids hot for up to 12 hours, depending on the design.

    One downside to stainless steel bottles though is that they may dent and become scratched if dropped.

    Great for:

    • Those who like to keep liquids cool or warm for long periods (opt for an insulated stainless steel bottle in this case)
    • Aren’t fazed by a few scratches over time

    BPA & PVC Free Water Bottles

    BPA & PVC free plastic water bottles are great for those who are a bit rougher with their bottles. You can repeatedly drop a plastic bottle without worrying about breaking or scratching it. They are generally the more lightweight option to carry around too.

    When choosing a plastic water bottle be sure to select one that is high quality, does not contain BPA or PVC. We love Camelbak and Contigo.

    We do not recommend putting safe plastic water bottles in the freezer or dishwasher, and they are not suitable for warm liquids.

    Great for: 

    • Those who don’t want to be too worried about having to be really gentle with their water bottle
    • Like a lightweight bottle

    A water filter bottle will come in really handy if you are travelling overseas, camping, or just want to drink healthy, clean water. Our OKO filtered water bottle with a level 2 filter will reduce 99.99% of contaminants while leaving beneficial trace minerals, magnesium, calcium and potassium. The Camelbak filter water bottle will also remove chlorine, odours and improve taste. While the Eau Good! charcoal water filter bottle will reduces chlorine, mineralise the water and balances the pH.

    Water filter replacements are available online at Biome.

    Great for:

    If you have trouble getting your recommended daily intake of water, why not try infusing your water with fruit or herbs. Infused water is a much healthier alternative to soft drink or sports drinks, and you will have lots fun making your own mixes. We love BBBYO infused water bottles that are insulated and perfect for tea too.
