Is it better to drink from glass or stainless steel?

Stainless steel water bottles and cups are perfect for taking your hot or cold drinks with you wherever you go.

Keep hydrated, save money and reduce your impact on the environment by not adding to single-use plastic waste.

Read on for more information on the benefits of drinking from a stainless steel water bottle or cup.

Keep your drink hot for up to 12 hours or cold for up to 24 hours

One of the biggest and best advantages of a stainless steel water bottle or cup is that because it is double-wall insulated it will keep your drink hot for up to 12 hours, or cold for up to 24 hours, unlike glass which will allow your drink to reach room temperature much faster.

The thermal collection is available in four styles: the 500ml Savannah bottle, the 350ml Forest bottle, the 355ml Safari mug or the 340ml Pygmy mug.

Shatter-proof and durable

Stainless steel is a safer option than glass as it is shatter-proof. It is more suitable for the whole family as stainless steel can withstand much more wear and tear than glass.

A good quality stainless steel bottle is also leak-proof, so your kid’s homework or the contents of your bag will not be ruined by accidental spillages.

Keep your water fresh

Most of us are familiar with enjoying our beverages from glassware and the thought of drinking from a metal bottle or cup may seem a little strange to start with. However, washing your stainless steel bottle with warm soapy water before its first use, and after each subsequent use will keep your water tasting fresh.


Many industries requiring excellent hygiene standards, such as hospitality, choose stainless steel as it does not rust, is easy to clean, and is non-absorbent, meaning that bacteria and germs can be washed away. This is also applies to stainless steel in bottle form.

Long lasting

Stainless steel is an ideal material to replace plastic drink bottles with as it has a long life expectancy.

If you do decide to upgrade your stainless steel bottle (perhaps for a colour change or different size) it is a completely recyclable material. If it finds its way into a landfill site, it will not break down in any way harmful to water or soil.


Stainless steel water bottles and cups are incredibly popular and available in a choice of eye-catching colours and sizes. Choose the perfect bottle or cup for your style and drink requirements.

Better for the environment

On average, at least one million plastic bottles are bought every minute around the world. The majority of these will end up in landfill sites.

Not only do single-use plastic bottles have a negative impact on the environment once used, but they also add to pollution, climate change and the use of natural energy sources during production.

By choosing a reusable bottle or cup you can significantly reduce the impact of plastic bottles on the environment.

Keep hydrated on the move

By taking a drink with you when you leave the house, you are more likely to remember to keep hydrated.

Whether you are on the commute to work, enjoying a walk in the park or going to the gym, you can benefit from the convenience of taking your reusable bottle with you.

Money saving

Using a reusable bottle or cup is better for your wallet.

There are over 30,000 water refill stations available in the UK free of charge. Filling up your water bottle on the move instead of buying a drink in a single-use plastic bottle will save you money.

You can even benefit from discounts in lots of coffee shops by using your own bottle or cup.

Less litter

It’s fantastic for your health and wellbeing to spend time outdoors, however, with an increasing number of people enjoying the countryside and parks, there has unfortunately been an increase in litter left behind.

Taking your own stainless steel bottle with you means that you are likely to bring it home again, therefore reducing the risk of littering.
