If you’re looking at that headline and thinking, “But I use plastic water bottles! I don’t need to buy a reusable bottle,” you’ve probably at least heard before that plastic water bottles are an environmental hazard, with 38 billion plastic water bottles wasted each year (most of these ending up in landfills and oceans) and contributing to enough wasted energy to power 190,000 homes. With a water filter from WAVE Home Solutions, you can protect yourself and your family with health, clean and great-tasting water while also saving money over time and reducing your carbon footprint. When the water that comes from your tap is of such high quality, you have no excuse not to pick up a reusable water bottle and say goodbye to plastic. Here are some of your best options:
1. Hidrate Spark, $46.95
The Hidrate Spark is more than just a water bottle; it’s a smart device that connects to an app on your phone to monitor your water intake and remind you when you need to drink more water. At $46.95, it’s on the pricy side for a water bottle, but think of it as an investment in your health, and it is well worth the price!
Practical and convenient, this 750 milliliter bottle is made out of a soft material that collapses in on itself, with a molded top and bottom that snap together for easy transport. This is the perfect water bottle for an on-the-go lifestyle, whether you’re hiking, running, traveling, you name it.
3. KINGSO 170z. Stainless Steel Water Bottle, $12.99-$14.98
These stainless steel bottles may not look like much, but their metal interiors and exteriors are scratch-resistant and will keep your drink chilled for up to 9 hours or warm for up to 18 hours. With a sleek and lightweight design, the bottles are easy to carry with you on your jog or hike, or to stash in a gym bag or backpack.
If you like the feeling of drinking water out of a glass, this 22-ounce bottle is made from 60% recycled glass and contains no harmful chemicals. However, you can drink from it without the worry of it falling and shattering, as it is protected with a silicone sleeve that can withstand a fall of up to eight feet.
The Nalgene is a classic water bottle and its design may be simple, but it serves an important purpose: weaning you off non-reusable plastic water bottles. Made of durable, 100% BPA-free plastic, they’ll hold up for years and eliminate the need to continue purchasing plastic water bottles at the grocery store that just get thrown away.
