Again and again, we’ve spoken about how unnecessary bottled water is. About how it’s a blight on our environment and how we’re roped into buying it. We’ve continuously urged you to drop it (or more accurately, recycle it) and head back to the tap. But, what we haven’t done – until now – is talk about how you can maintain the convenience that bottled water offers you, but do so in an environmentally responsible and economically smart way.
The answer? A reusable bottle, of course!
But, like so many things these days, you’ll be met with an overwhelming amount of choice when you head out to purchase one. After all, they come in so many different shapes and sizes and promise so much. Which is the right one for you? Here are a few potential suitors…
Cheeki has a great range of ‘sport bottles’ that will be perfect game day. Whether it’s soccer, cricket, basketball or curling, these bottled will definitely do the trick. To keep you on the go, they feature a handy straw as well as a rubber grip to make sure those sweaty palms don’t get in the way. As with all of Cheeki’s products they are made from premium grade stainless steel with no inside lining, non-toxic inks and are BPA-Free.
Need to get a lot down fast? Then the Klean Kanteen Wide Mouth Bottle with Stainless Loop Cap is a great pick. The opening is more than two inches in diameter! The stainless steel threads mean the bottles won’t retain or leach flavors, so you’ll be sure to get a fresh, clean, crisp drink every time. Klean Kanteen is aso BPA-Free and 100% recyclable!
If you’re thirsty and you’re on the road some of these bottles may be a bit tricky. But not the Contigo Jackson Reusable Water Bottle. At the press of a button the lid will flip up giving you easy access to that refreshing liquid inside. No messing around with twist offs or flip ups. With a leak proof lid and a cool carry handle, this is a good choice.
If you’re like me, you like your water cold. But you’ll often find your water at room temperature before you know it. The Healthy Human Water Bottle boasts the ability to keep your liquids cold for 24hrs, hot for 12hrs and piping hot for 6hrs! Talk about long lasting.
Bottles can often be quite on the heavy side. So if you’re packing light and what as much free space as possible, the Platypus soft bottle could be the way to go. 80% less weight than the standard bottle, the Platypus easily folds up when finished with yet can still hold all the water you need to keep you going.
Going to the gym? Need to stay hydrated but also get your post-workout protein fix? Then the Blender ProStak System is a good choice. Featuring a handy space to store your powder during your workout, this choice will save time and space.
