    I saw these at the OR Winter show, and will hopefully be able to include them in an upcoming water bottle review. There’s no photo in my post because their website covers that much better than I could, showing how it comes together. While it won't fit in a water bottle cage, it's perfect for just about anything else.

    Stay hydrated with the first easy-to-clean, bamboo and glass constructed, BPA-free water bottle.​

    (Portsmouth, NH) – Bamboo Bottle Company maker of the Bamboo Original™ reusable bottle, is proud to announce its attendance at the Expo West Marketplace. The 17 oz Bamboo Original™ bottle is BPA-free and features environmentally friendly bamboo and glass construction with a stylish and functional design.

    “The Bamboo Bottle Company began as conversation amongst friends who all have a long history in the outdoor and sports industry,” states Senior Vice President Patrick Carland. “We looked at the marketplace and saw an opportunity for a clean, great looking bamboo bottle with minimal environmental impact.”

    Created by outdoor industry veterans, Bamboo Bottle Company was born after a slew of Las Vegas brainstorms, a few drawings on cocktail napkins, meticulous research and lots of late nights. One reoccurring theme became obvious to the crew during every meeting: go bamboo. Bamboo is sleek, durable, stylish and best of all, renewable.

    “We wanted to make a clean, great looking bottle you could drink hot or cold beverages from,” says Carland. “Clean to us meant the liquid had to taste great when drinking from the bottle and the product had to respect the environment as much as possible. Bamboo and glass allow us to accomplish that goal. We hope to minimize our impact on the environment and increase reusable bottle awareness with the Bamboo Bottle Company.”

    The Bamboo Outer
    Because of the species’ stability, hardness and strength, our bottles are made from Phyllostachys Pubescens bamboo (also known as Moso and Mau Tzu). The bamboo is grown and harvested in temperate conditions that allow it to grow to its maximum potential – 90 feet in 9 months! The best part of the harvesting method is the hand selection and hand cutting of the bamboo. This allows maturing and flowering strands to remain flourishing and minimizes the impact on ground soil since no heavy machinery is used. Once cut, the bamboo will continue to grow just like mowing your lawn. This selective cutting process leaves the soil and land in its best possible state.
    The bamboo outer acts as a natural insulator for hot or cold beverages while protecting the glass interior during activities and accidental drops.

    The Glass Inner

    After testing hundreds of prototypes, Bamboo Bottle Company developed a first-of-its-kind design—an easily removable, dishwasher-safe, 60 percent recycled, durable glass interior, produced from completely natural substances and able to withstand active lifestyles.

    Unlike plastics and metals that can leach chemicals, the Bamboo Bottle Company’s BPA-free glass interior keeps liquids safe, clean tasting and insulated—hot or cold. The stylish, patent pending design allows for easy cleanup. Simply unscrew the top and bottom and slide the dishwasher-safe glass lining out.

    Capping It Together

    The cap, venting bottom and nut are dishwasher-safe, FDA food grade approved, and made from BPA-free plastic that can be easily recycled and turned into other products. Both the Type II (HDPE) and Type IV (LDPE) can be turned into your local recycling center.

    That's cool, I like to see petroleum based products as non existent in things as possible. Especially things I drink out of.

    Can't wait. I've been trying to eliminate plastic from most everything I use. It's hard.

    Well, even this one isn't completely plastic free (though is BPA free), but it looks really nice.
