Retap 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?
