    another option would be to have each bottle personally hand delivered, filled with freshly gathered glacial water! then, packaging becomes a non-issue! ;-)
    We could do that! $500/per bottle. We'll even include a free sticker!
    Have a question? @Darcy (to make sure I see it)

        Definitely go for the eco-friendly packaging material! I imagine that everyone would wash their water bottle before using it anyhow. Besides, is plastic and/or styrofoam packaging material really that clean?

          Thanks for the feedback. And good point, SusanA - that people will want to wash their bottles before using them anyway. (The water bottle is dishwasher safe - woohoo!)

            I want glacial water from the Seattle area mountains with the gps location written on a Matterhorn sticker!

            The new packaging is amazing!

            I think that it can be reused, for fragile things, even for gifts, if embellished with stickers, especially by children.

            Such a find, Darcy!

            Tom Bihn's team is first class.

              Paper dust is fine. I agree with SusanA that no packaging is really clean. Maybe you could include a small printed card with instructions to wash the bottle first and a brief explanation of the new eco-friendly material?

                I've already added to an order waiting to ship when the Iberian yarn sacks are ready, but I decided I want Solar sacks,too, after all the chatter over on Ravelry!
                So, just waiting on the water bottle to set up a new order! :-)

                    Wow! Glass! That is pretty interesting and very cool looking. Grown-up product though. I can't imagine that surviving a week in my kids' possession!!

                      Hi, Darcy: this looks really good, but I'm curious - what is the total weight of the bottle and sleeve?

                        Good question! It's 1lb, 1.4oz

                          I love that it is glass! Just ordered a red and a blue!
                          And, yes, my Solar yarn stuff sacks, as well! :-)

                            hi keb,

                            actually, the glass is pretty darned tough. i think that the silicone sleeve helps to keep the bottle safe. i've managed to drop the bottle - it got a little dirty, but it was nothing that couldn't be washed off. i have even whacked it on the side of my car more than once (yes, i'm a bit clumsy), and neither the bottle nor the car have gotten a scratch as a result.

                            these are really super bottles!

                              I totally agree, Maverick!
                              I used to carry around an old glass goat milk bottle because I really prefer the pure taste of water from a glass container! It never broke no matter how clumsy I was!
                              Don't think I'd trust the glass milk bottles made now, but I definitely have confidence in what Tom Bihn finds for us!

                                Is Maverick going to make a video showing us how to drink from a water bottle?
