I am known for always being seen with a bottle of water or a coffee (and often both) in my hand. I drink copious amounts of water so I need to have it on hand at all times. Last year in a bid to reduce my plastic consumption I went on the hunt for a reusable water bottle, I scoured the internet and asked friends for their top recommendations and here were some of my top picks. I ended up purchasing a couple of them as I found that they had different functions.
I love the 32 oz Hydro Flask when I go on hikes as I can hold the bottle from the top and it holds a large amount of water which is great when I’m out for a long period of time. The downside is that it is difficult to hold with one hand so I don’t use this as a day to day water bottle. I use the Brita Water Bottle when I am out of town as it comes with a water filter which means I can just fill up my bottle and go. If I am going to a work out class then I would take my BKR Tutu Bottle as it’s much smaller than the Hydro Flask and easier to carry and it also has the top handle. I tend not to take it out for the day as it is made of glass so it can be heavy to put it in a bag so when I’m out and about I use the S’well Water Bottle as it is much lighter. The BKR Tutu Bottle, Brita Water Bottle and Hydro Flask are all dishwasher safe whereas the S’well Water Bottle is hand wash only.
I have not tried the Larq Self Cleaning Bottle but have heard great things about it and love the concept of its self cleaning function which turns on every two hours to make sure that your water and bottle stay clean. It’s definitely on the higher end for a water bottle at $95 due to this feature but from a hygiene perspective it really appeals to me.
