Retap your Drinks: Review

retap rethink waterRetap is of Scandinavian design and is especially made for use with tap water – the bottle has been specially designed with the thought of giving the best drinking experience even down to the fact it has been made with no edges to make sure there is little room for bacteria to grow. The bottle itself has been made from a high quality borosilicate glass that offers a more eco-friendly production form than normal glass and also just happens to be 20% recycled as well as extra strong to help it last longer – in fact all Retap glass bottles come with a life time guarantee and if yours does happen to break you just send it back for a replacement free of charge. The lid is made from a BPA free rubber and on top of that each bottle is completely dishwasher safe, they even sell a dishwasher rack so you can make sure it makes it through the wash safely.

Personally I really like the idea of the Retap bottle – I hardly dare think of how many plastic bottles I use across a year and while I make sure I pop them all into the recycle bin I would feel 100% better knowing that I don’t even have to worry about that and just wash and reuse. I’m not a water girl but I’ve found it pretty easy to pop a bit of squash into the bottle before adding water – and it fits perfectly into the fridge door (as well as your hand) so on a warm day so I can grab a cool swig ever now and again.

I was sent the 500ml size which comes in at £12 each and can be brought from Green Tulip, but they are also available in 300ml and 800ml so you can grab a size that is right for you.

What do you think of the Retap bottle, could you see yourself using one?

    Having had candida, I am all for anything that doesn’t let bacteria grow. I have had enough bacteria to last me a lifetime. I would for sure put this bottle to good use if I had one. I take my own water with me where ever I go.

      It’s fab isn’t it – it’s made to work perfectly with dishwashers as well and allow the water to flow around the bottle. We have been using it in the fridge for cold water I have to admit. x

  2. Yuen

    This is actually such a cool innovative idea! (:

  3. Delphina

    I had not heard of these. I am constantly on the lookout for a reusable water that doesn’t leak or have badness in it! Thanks!

    I’m always a little apprehensive about what is in my tap water, which is why I use a water bottle with a filter, but I like that his one does not let bacteria grow!

    • Sarah-Louise Bailey

      I can completely understand that – my Dad works in the water industry over here so we have a bit more of an insight – a way around it could be getting a filter jug and then dispense it into the bottle :) x

  17. Annemarie

    I have never heard of these before but would definitely consider using. I go through a mountain of plastic bottles and always cringe about it!

  18. Pam

    Yes, I could definitely see myself using one of these. I didn’t even know about this product. Thanks for sharing it with us.

  19. Rosey

    I love this! Though water bottles are handy, I do worry about bacteria growing, especially around the straw area or in the straw where it’s truthfully hard to reach and get clean.

  20. Motherhood on the Rocks

    Very cool idea! I need one of these!

  21. Akhil

    I hate bacteria so will prefer these bottles for sure and the price is affordable, which is impressive. Thanks for sharing this product :)

  22. Healy Harpster

    I definitely could use this bottle. I need to drink a lot of water and this will motivate me. Love it!

  23. Malia

    This is a great alternative to plastic bottles!

  24. Melinda Dunne

    I would actually use this bottle all the time. I don’t ever drink tap water. I usually get water from one of my friends that has a special machine but if I had the bottle I would be able to do that myself.

  25. Growing Up Madison

    This is really such a great idea. I buy bottled water but I also have a bottle that I refill as well when I’m on the go. This looks like a really nice bottle as well.

  26. Pam

    Love the design and the fact that it decreases the chances of bacteria growing. Water is what does a body good.

  27. Anita Breeze

    I have never heard of these before, but I do agree with the idea of not using plastic water bottles. I used to buy them, but not any more.

  28. Shelley Jessup

    With a very low immune system I so need to be careful where bacteria is concerned & I think this is a super idea, one I may need to add to that ‘need to buy’ list that grows every day!

  29. Paul Wilson

    An interesting idea.

  30. Noor Unnahar

    It’s a great idea . I always waste money on cheap plastics so it’s a go.

  31. Tough Cookie Mommy

    I like the fact that the shape of the bottle contributes to your enjoyment in drinking it.

  32. Michelle H

    It’s a really cool looking design and I love that it’s not a fliptop lid.

  33. T. Marie

    This is really cool. I am always buying bottled water because I do not trust tap water at all. This might just change my mind though.

  34. Reader

    I like the fact it doesn’t have edges, which in return minimises the risk of bacteria being able to grow! Yay!

  35. Courtney Pies

    This is pretty cool! I love how they can be put in the dishwasher – makes for easy cleaning!

  36. Agata Pokutycka

    Oh yes! Loving the look of it

  37. Samantha
