Save our planet and your wallet in one fell swoop.

I’m the type of person that can never have too many water bottles. I form human-like attachment bonds to my favorite water bottles and I grieve for a great loss on the all-too-common occurrence that I lose, misplace or damage one of my favorites. But, I’m not water bottle monogamous in the slightest. Any time I’m in a well-curated gift shop, TJ Maxx or see a well-timed targeted advertisement, I find myself wondering how much my life would improve with the addition of a new water bottle to my already stacked arsenal of beverage containers.

Most of the time, I decide that the aesthetic value of a new water bottle is enough to carry me through any stressors I might experience at any point that week, but beyond that, I’m wholly a cold water brat. I like to have access to cool water from my fridge no matter where I am and I don’t like the option of paying upwards of $3 for bottled water any time I leave the house. Because of that, I encourage you to join me on my journey to replacing disposable beverage containers with the ever-convenient—and still stylish—option of your very own.

Below, you’ll find my favorites available on Amazon.

For Those That Drink Tea and Coffee Just As Much As Water

Why We Picked It: If you travel a lot—to remote camping destinations or 2-star hotels—you might be lusting after a possible solution to your coffee and tea woes.

For Those That Spend A Lot of Time Outdoors
