With plastic waste being such a huge issue today, there is no doubt that everyone should be making the effort to switch to a reusable water bottle. Even if you reuse a plastic bottle a few times before tossing it, you’re still contributing to the major problem of plastic waste in our oceans and landfills and not eliminating some of the biggest problems we are facing with water bottles.
Australians have made great efforts to reduce plastic usage in recent years, but until we reach a point of zero plastic consumption, there is still work to be done. Fortunately, this is an issue that everyone can pitch in on–and you can help on a daily basis.
By choosing to use a reusable water bottle, you’re making a direct impact on the environment. Plus, you’ll get to enjoy a number of benefits that come along with a reusable bottle.
#1 A reusable bottle will prove more refreshing
Sick of pulling a plastic water bottle out of the fridge only to have it room temperature by the time you finish your workout? That’s not an issue with the insulated reusable water bottles available today. With vacuum insulation, there’s no sweating a cold drink–literally!
These insulated reusable bottles don’t just keep your drink cold all day, they also prevent that annoying sweat ring from forming every time you put a cold plastic bottle down. These reusable bottles keep all the condensation within their double walls, so you’ll never have to wipe off condensation again. You’re also contributing to eliminating some of the biggest problems we are facing with water bottles.
#2 A reusable bottle will be more durable
Typically made of stainless steel, a reusable water bottle may dent if you drop it a lot, but it won’t burst open or spill if you tilt it over, drop something on it, or even accidentally (or purposefully) sit, stand, or fall on it. That’s more than can be said for any plastic bottle, which will quickly crack under pressure.
#3 A reusable bottle will be more convenient
The average reusable water bottle comes with a hooked cap to which you can attach a cord or carabiner clip, allowing you to easily carry your water bottle with you anywhere. No more leaving your water at home because you don’t feel like carrying it or forgetting it in your purse or car when you head to the gym. Clip it on your waist, your gym bag, or anywhere you see fit and it will always be there right when you need it.
#4 A reusable bottle is healthier for you, too
Reusable bottles aren’t just better for the environment, they’re also better for your own health. Plastic and BPA are considered major health dangers around the world today. Choosing a reusable bottle that’s free of BPA and other harmful chemicals gives you another reason to breathe a sigh of relief after a long workout.
