Tired of buying cases and cases of expensive bottled water? There’s lots of evidence that bottled water is not only expensive, but also bad for the environment. But don’t worry…there are many ways to cut costs and go green in the process. Here are a few of the best refillable water bottle options.
Try buying a bottle that gives back such as MiiR. MiiR makes stainless steel bottles that keep your hot drinks hot and your cold drinks cold. Not only are their bottles eco-friendly, but they help make a difference with one dollar from every bottle purchased going to provide one person with clean water for an entire year through their partnership with One Day’s Wages. The customizable bottles come in seven bright colors that help you to show off your style while giving back to the community. They offer both insulated as well as classic bottle options.
Another option is the flexible Vapur water bottle. The mission of this California-based company was to make water more sustainable and portable. Since toting a bulky reusable water bottle can be a hassle and disposable bottles are a waste, they came up with the idea of the Anti-Bottles. Vapur Anti-Bottles are ultra-durable, freezable and BPA-free. They are very portable, with the ability to be rolled, folded or flattened when empty. In addition, Vapur is committed to raising awareness about the global water crisis through their program “Drops of Hope.” The company gives 1% of all sales to environmental water-related causes.
Want a bottle that filters the water for you? Look no further than Hydros. The 16oz Hydros water bottle filters out harmful chemicals in under 20 seconds, as well as protects against the build-up of bacteria. Not only does this bottle help keep you healthy but one dollar from each purchase helps fund sustainable water infrastructure projects. The most recent is Project Gundom which works to bring clean water to the area of Gundom, Cameroon.
Last but not least, Thinksport has provided a line of safe, functional and sustainable water bottles. The company itself was created to address the growing concern of toxic chemicals in consumer products. The Thinksport LIVESTRONG Insulated sports bottle is one of our favorites. The double-walled and vacuum-sealed stainless steel keeps the contents hot or cold for up to 12 hours. Purchasing this product will help to guarantee a minimum of $1.5 million to LIVESTRONG’s fight against cancer.
Thirsty? Try one of these water bottles and you will be doing way more than just quenching that thirst, you’ll be helping other people in need do the same.
