The Top 10 Refillable Water Bottles
At least a million plastic water bottles are bought around the world every minute – most of which are destined to end up in landfill or in the oceans. What’s worse, this horrifying number is set to hit 1.2 million bottles a minute by 2021. We’re determined to do our bit, however small, to help reverse this statistic by investing in a reusable water bottle – and we’ve rounded up our ten favourites if you’re looking to make your new year a lower-impact one, too.
Well known brand Chilly’s makes double-walled bottles which promise to keep drinks icy-cold for up to 24 hours. We love their design collaborations – a recent one includes whimsical bottle illustrations by British homeware designer Emma Bridgewater.
Celebrity favourite S’well’s simple metal bottles come in a huge array of beautiful colourways. We can vouch for their heat and cold-retaining properties too – great for bringing a homemade tea or coffee on your AM commute.
These sleek glass bottles come in sets of two – perfect for leaving one at your desk and one in your gym bag. We like the non-slip silicone cover, which is ideal for holding onto while exercising or carrying along as you head home from work. The eco-friendly borosilicate glass is easy to clean, too.
Soma’s beautiful bottle designs incorporate shatter-resistant glass and a natural bamboo cap, which comes from a sustainable bamboo source.
If you’ve already switched over to reusable drinks bottles, you’ll know that easy cleaning becomes a top priority when picking out a new bottle. We like Dopper bottles because unlike a lot of multiple-use bottles, they’re dishwasher-safe. They’re also manufactured in a climate-neutral process and are made of BPA and toxin-free plastic.
BOBBLE PURE DRINKS GLASS BOTTLE
Bobble’s silicone-wrapped glass bottle design makes it comfortable to the touch and well-protected from bumps and scrapes. A straw in the top makes it easy to sip on the move, too.
BRITA FILL AND GO
Turn your bottle of tap water into freshly filtered water with Brita’s offering, which includes a filter to remove salts, metals and minerals from your drink. We love the wide choice of lid colours and the easy-to-replace filter system, too.
Here’s an unusual one…Memobottles come shaped in traditional paper sizes – A5, A6 and A7 – allowing you to slide your water bottle into the slimmest of bags. The startup brand is all about making bottles which are stylish and super-easy to transport.
EVA SOLO MY FLAVOUR DRINKING BOTTLE
This simple screwtop plastic bottle is made of BPA-free plastic, which means there’s no nasty bisphenol, phthalates or heavy metals involved. Even better, it comes with a skewer so you can easily spike your H20 with fruit or herbs. The fabric strap makes it easy to carry along with you.
JOSEPH JOSEPH DOT HYDRATION TRACKER BOTTLE
Want to keep on top of your fluids intake? Joseph Joseph’s super stylish tracker bottle allows you to do just that.
