Liberty Bottleworks {Giveaway}–CLOSED

What’s the one thing you can’t ever leave the house without? Mine is my water bottle. I started carrying around a water bottle 24/7 in college because one of my roommates swore by it to help lose weight (it works, by the way). Through the years I’ve been through many iterations of bottles. I’ve used and refilled bottled water bottles, I’ve bought really expensive ones from sporting goods stores and I’ve bought really cheap ones from the Dollar Store. But while the bottle has changed, what hasn’t is the fact that I am attached at the hip to my water bottle! So naturally, I was anxious to try out  the only American made metal water bottle by Liberty Bottleworks.

Liberty Bottleworks considers itself a “vintage American company.” Not only do they support jobs in the USA, they pledge 1% of their sales and 1% of their working hours to helping large, local and grass roots efforts, such as the National Park Service, the Conservation Alliance and Keep America Beautiful.  They are also extremely committed to protecting the environment. Their production factory in Yakima, Washington, is filled with state of the art equipment which uses less energy, cleans waste water, and conserves resources. They even melted down their own scrap and made it into more bottles! They are truly Green all the way.

bottles

All Liberty Bottleworks’ bottles are made  from 100% recycled aluminum, are BPA Free, non-toxic and non-leaching. In addition to supporting the environment, Liberty Bottleworks also supports local artists. The Artisan collection features designs by artists who stand behind a cause, and a portion of the sale supports their cause. There are seven pages worth of designs on the Artisan page alone, and all are unique and interesting–there is definitely a bottle for everyone! There are several other cool collections to choose from including the Mass Transit collection, the Topography collection, the Freedom collection, or you can design your own Custom bottle!  They also have a Kids collection with bottles in 12 and 16 ounces and designs kids would like.

I chose to review the Blossom bottle from the Artisan collection. It arrived safely in a small, (most likely) made-from-recycled-materials box. The color of the bottle is beautiful though slightly darker than the picture shown on the website. The design on the bottle is raised, which is due to the cylindrical printers used at Liberty Bottleworks. I like it because it gives me a little something to grip as I constantly drink my water. The metal is smooth and strong; I have dropped it accidentally a few times since receiving it and have yet to see a scratch or a dent. The metal keeps my cold water colder for longer, which I love.

My water bottle goes wherever I go. This is where it lives at night, right next to my bed.

I chose the Sport top as opposed to the Standard cap with an O-ring because I am a straw drinker all the way. I love the easy flip top and the wide loop for holding it when the straw is down. The mouthpiece is smooth and doesn’t leave a weird taste in my mouth like some plastic straws or mouthpieces do. My only complaint would be that while it’s really easy to open the top to fill it, it’s almost too easy and I worry that my kids will pop it open and spill all over themselves or that it will pop off in my purse and soak everything inside. It hasn’t happened yet, but we’ve come close.

After a day at the pool, what I need is some cold water!

If you’re not a fan of the straw-type bottles, never fear! Liberty offers both the Sport top (in black only) and a Standard cap with O-ring in seven different colors to match whichever bottle you choose. Bottles can be purchased  in select, local retailers or online. Prices are really reasonable and start at $15 for the 12 oz. Kids bottle, $18 for 16 oz., $19 for 24 oz. and $20 for the 32 oz. bottle. Connect up with Liberty Bottleworks on Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, YouTube and Twitter, or apply to be a Sustainability Officer and spread the word in your home town!
