Made from high-grade borosilicate glass, these pieces are durable and have a lifetime warranty. They feature percolators that offer powerful functions while creating water filtration and cooling for a smoother hit.
Glass bongs are reusable and last for years when properly cared for. This makes them more environmentally friendly and cost-efficient than disposable paper wraps, blunts and joints.

Glass is made from non-porous borosilicate, which handles temperature changes very well and is super durable.

Better for the Environment

Local laws and policies must be enacted to impose litter fines on smokers and encourage the proper disposal of these waste products.
Glass is 100% recyclable and can be used to produce new forms of packaging without relying on raw materials. However, only around 70% of drinks are collected for recycling, so more must be done to improve collection rates worldwide.
When used correctly, glass bongs and pipes are incredibly durable. Our scientific borosilicate models (used for testing elements) can withstand a lot of pressure and will last years.
To ensure that your glass bongs and pipes are safe to use, it’s a good idea to clean them deep at least once every week. Mix equal parts of rubbing alcohol and coarse salt, scrub away any stuck-on resin with a brush and then leave to soak in a solution of the same ingredients for an hour or so.
The resulting solution can be used to rinse the remaining residue from your bong, then fill it with fresh water and enjoy! Keeping your glass bongs clean is also great for the taste of your smoke.
