Pitch the Plastic: Glass Water Bottles

A few years ago I made a concerted effort to stop buying bottled water and instead fill my own bottles and keep them on hand. The problem with this is that plastic and metal bottles tend to leach flavor (and who knows what else!) into the water. The solution? Glass water bottles!
