Glass bottle

Blogging is really hard right now, for a whole bunch of reasons. I have a lot to say but no energy to start.

So instead let me tell you about my exciting glass drink bottle. I’ve been coveting my boss’s one for ages. And then recently, I’ve had to take water with me everywhere I go, and not being overly organised, I’ve been stopping at my local servo on the way out to anywhere to grab a bottle of water. Since the need to have water on me is not going to go away any time soon, I’ve been starting to feel really bad about my consumption (and disposal of) plastic bottles. Yesterday, I was unable to make it to Lee Battersby’s book launch in the city and C went as our representative. Since he was killing time later on, I got a message asking me “about those glass bottles I wanted” and he brought me home two of my very own. And today,  I trialled the 800ml one. It wasn’t as heavy as I thought it might be and now I feel all virtuous at my reusing the bottle and it’s ability to be regularly cleaned. Here’s one very happy water drinking person and a nice reduction in my carbon/water usage/landfill footprint!
