Soulbottles, reusable glass bottles with a story, made in Germany and free of all harmful elements
These bottles were born out of a desire to make people more aware of how the use of plastic articles pollutes the planet. Soulbottles uses its bottles to provide attractive and accessible alternatives to plastic bottles. Soulbottles are strong, environmentally friendly and reusable.
Soulbottles also aims to encourage people through its contemporary designs to aid in the quest for solutions when it comes to avoiding plastic. We must take action.
€ 1 per Soulbottle sold goes to the Viva con Agua clean water projects.
The ceramic caps are made in southern Germany by a company with over 115 years of experience in ceramics, giving the contemporary Soulbottles a classic and traditional touch. The Soulbottles are put together and sold at the head office in Berlin.
Soulbottles uses the design of the Vienna-based designer, Talia Radford. The drawings printed on the bottles are by a range of artists, and the bottles are manufactured in a glass factory in the Thuringian Forest, after which they are shipped to the printer where the attractive designs and texts are printed.
Why choose Soulbottles?
When you buy a Soulbottle you immediately make a contribution to a healthier, less polluted world and you also save money: the price of a Soulbottle is about the same as the price of bottled water for 2.5 weeks.
The idea of producing a product on home soil often sounds like a mere pipe dream. But the founders of Soulbottles wondered why that should be the case and, especially when you are creating a classic product, it should be feasible to do so at home. When it comes to the manufacture of the glass bottles, the makers of Soulbottles rely on their own German raw materials – with the exception of the natural rubber – and they utilise their own glass production experience. There are many areas in Germany where there is a strong tradition of glasswork, and by keeping manufacturing at home, Soulbottles also intends to avoid unnecessary polluting transport. And this is despite the fact that production in the Far East would be a great deal cheaper.
For every Soulbottle sold, one euro is donated to the Hamburg NGO Viva con Agua, an organisation that focuses on a wide range of potable water projects in poor nations. The Soulbottles donations go to Nepal and today 40,000 people have access to pure water, healthcare and education.
You can buy a range of sealing rings and change the colour whenever you please.
Why use glass?
Soulbottles says: ‘glass is faithful’, by which they mean that glass stays glass. It remains neutral and does not absorb or release any taste. Use your Soulbottle for smoothies, iced tea, iced coffee or soup. When you wash it with our bottle brush no leftover taste will remain when you refill it with water.
Even if you have used your Soulbottle for a smoothie or soup, no worries! While cleaning the glass bottle you can easily see where any leftover bits are clinging to the inside of the bottle.
Glass rises like a phoenix from the ashes: it is 100% recyclable and won’t become degraded, whether it was a gherkin jar or a whisky bottle in its previous incarnation. Moreover, when glass is recycled no poisonous substances are released into the soil, the rivers or our bodies.
