Liberty Bottles
Liberty Bottles’ ‘Critical Mass’ 24 oz. water bottle available at the Earth911 store.

Made in America, by American workers in a near zero waste factory.  But wait, it gets better.  You see, Liberty Bottles are the only American made metal bottle on the market made from 100% recycled metal.

A toast to the past and the future

Inspired by the resourcefulness of their great, great, great grandparents generation, Liberty Bottleworks’ founders strive to minimize waste.

Liberty is dedicated to preserving the environment and cares about people. Our bottles are made with recycled material and are entirely recyclable. We are committed to developing new processes in design and fabrication that will make our products last longer and consume less waste.

To date, their manufacturing factory is approaching 96% waste diversion by using super-efficient Super E Motors, Infrared Energy and Vacuum Recovery Units.  They also filter and reuse their own water three times and recycle any remaining scrap. Reuse, repurpose and recycle are embedded into their process.

The difference

Because Liberty Bottles are made with 100% recycled metal and 100% recycled plastic milk jugs (for the bottle cap), they are recyclable should you ever decide to do so.  However, as I can personally attest to these bottles are in it for the long haul.  I’ve personally owned two for several years now, and after dozens of dishwasher washes (and accidental drops) they still look brand new.

  • The cap, again made from 100% recycled milk jugs, uses a patented ¼ turn design. Easy to take on and off, the cap locks in all liquid when fastened on.  Nothing is escaping when this baby is screwed on!
  • Liberty Bottles also feature a wide mouth threadless design which makes cleaning a breeze.  Looking to add ice cubes into your Liberty Bottle? No problem with the wide mouth design. Its tapered neck mimics the smooth pour of a wine bottle.  I suppose you could fill your Liberty Bottles with wine if you were really desperate.

Liberty Bottles are BPA free as well as BPH and Phthalate free.  They also exceed FDA requirements and are non-toxic.

The deep drawn aluminum construction translates into fewer dents, something I can again attest to.  Liberty Bottles come in many different looks, many of which are available at the Earth911 store.

Earth911 store carries Liberty Bottles in both 24 oz. and 12 oz.

Giving back

Liberty Bottleworks is looking to make a difference in not only the way products are made but also our community. They believe that most people want to do the right thing when it comes to helping each other, our environment and providing sustainable solutions. As a result, Liberty Bottleworks pledges 1% of sales and 1% of working hours to helping large, local and grass roots efforts.

We’ll drink to that!
