Glass vs Plastic

i9 bottles are made with quality glass (Swiss). We chose glass because it is better for health and also for our planet.

Healthier for You

i9bottle - Friends of glassGlass, unlike plastic bottles, does not contain any harmful chemicals such as BPA, phthalate, PVC, or polycarbonate, so nothing can leak into your water from glass bottle. Researchers found that also BPA-free types of plastic had estrogenic activity because of the chemical compounds that were intended to replace BPA in plastics. Glass is Endlessly Recyclable – Exclusively natural and the safest for the environment.

i9 is a part of Friends of glass community. i9 bottle is beautifully designed reusable bottle. You can refill your i9 glass bottle as much as you want, and drinking the recommended daily intake of informed water means a healthier you.

For the Environment

Roughly 3 million tons of plastic are used worldwide every year for disposable drinking bottles. Less than 1% of all plastic is recycled and 99% of plastics are incinerated or end up in a landfill. In addition to the water sold in plastic bottles, every liter sold represents three liters of water used in the production process of plastic bottle. Plastic manufacturing is estimated to use 8 percent of yearly global oil production.

i9 bottle helps you make the planet cleaner.

i9 glass raw materials

i9 informed glass bottles

Quartz sand is a naturally occurring granular material composed of finely divided rock and mineral particles.

Sodium carbonate is domestically well known as a water softener. It is produced from salt and limestone.

Feldspar is by far the most abundant group of minerals in the earth's crust, forming about 60% of terrestrial rocks.

Dolomite is an anhydrous carbonate mineral composed of calcium magnesium carbonate used as a source of magnesia.

Calcium carbonate, comprises more than 4% of the earth’s crust and one of the most useful and versatile materials.

Glass is 100% recyclable and can be recycled endlessly without loss in quality or purity.

Silicone vs Plastic

i9 Silicone informed water bottle rings

When it comes to offering a highly durable and reusable coloured bands doesn’t contain the estrogen-mimicking chemicals commonly found in plastics, we believe that silicone is currently the best answer.

Better for you

Strategically positioned coloured silicone bands on i9bottle offer re-enforced grip and better protection against breakage and potential for colour therapy. At i9 we use high quality FDA silicon (Germany).

Better for the Environment

When it comes to the environment, silicone is highly durable more Environment friendly than plastic. Also production of silicone has exceptional less impact on nature and environment.
Silicone is a synthetic rubber that contains bonded silicon and oxygen. Is an element found in silica, i.e., sand, one of the most common materials on earth.
Comparing with plastic Silicone is more flexible, sustainable and safer and also breaks down easily in environment (recyclable). Silicone is known for its heat-resistant and rubber-like qualities and is safe for the cooking and freezing temperatures.
