If you’re trying to reduce your carbon footprint, it’s smart to ditch plastic water bottles and containers in favor of good ol’ glass. Glass doesn’t stain or retain smells, it’s easy to keep clean and reduces waste. Pick a cute set like the ones we’ve chosen here and you’ll get an instant style boost to your kitchen counter or cupboard while doing your part to help the planet.

These bottles hold 18 ounces of liquid and are perfectly sized for homemade smoothies, juices or flavored seltzer. (Great for standard ice water, too.) They have an extra wide mouth that’s easy to fill and are leak proof since each cap is lined with a rubber O-ring. That prevents both messes and oxygen from getting in and turning your smoothie prematurely brown. From brightly colored drinks to water infused with fruit, these jars make them look pretty on your countertop, car or in your fridge.
