This Squeezable Bottle Blends the Benefits of Glass and Plastic

The Squeezable Glass bottle is a squeezable bottle that combines the advantages of glass and plastic. Plastic bottles are more durable and can survive the stresses and strains of an active lifestyle, but over time pick up unpleasant smells and flavors that can't be completely eliminated. Glass bottles don't pick up odors or mold for that matter, but one clumsy move and it's shattered.

This squeezable bottle isn't actually made of some groundbreaking glass-plastic hybrid material. It's actually made of plastic, which is why it can be squeezed -- but the inside of the bottle is coated with an incredibly thin layer of silicon dioxide, which is what glass is made from. This 'glass' barried prevents smells, flavors, molds and other unpleasant stuff from sticking to the plastic, but is thin enough to still keep the bottle flexible.
