Mommy Greenest Approved: Retap Water Bottles
Ready to rethink your water bottle? In previous posts, I’ve talked about the impact of bottled water on your health. But as cities like San Francisco move to ban plastic water bottle sales in public places, more and more consumers are considering the cost—both to their wallets, and to the environment: Plastic bottles require more than 17 million barrels of oil annually to make, enough to fuel 100,000 cars for a year. Enter Retap reusable water bottles, which are designed to make drinking water from the tap safe, easy and convenient. I’ve got FIVE to give away!
Retap water bottles are crafted from heat-resistant glass without any edges where bacteria can grow, so they’re perfect to reuse—and dishwasher safe. If that’s not reason enough, consider this: According to the online bottled water cost calculator created by the non-profit Center for a New American Dream, if the average person depended on bottled water to fulfill the suggested consumption of 64 ounces each day, the bill would add up to more than $2,000 each year. I calculated what my family’s consumption would cost and it rang up at a staggering $10,935. We can use that money elsewhere. Can’t you?
Retap thinks so. Winner of the numerous design awards, the bottles are made from strong yet lightweight, heat-resistant borosilicate glass. The press-on, BPA-free lid is miraculously drip-proof—I tested it out upside-down in my purse! And the bottles have no edges where bacteria can grow, so they’re perfect for reuse—and dishwasher safe. Starting at $15, these bottles are affordable, too.
I love my Retap bottle and have toted it all over town, refilling along the way. Want to try? Enter below: FIVE will win a Retap bottle of their choice!

I will also just buy Retap water bottle for myself and save the money that was intented for bottled water. I think that by doing it not only I can save the environment but I am also sure that I am away from diseases. Thanks for sharing this. I am now excited to purchase one for my self.
Thank goodness for a good design.
I agree! Thanks for commenting!
