Best Water Bottles

Adding a reusable water bottle to your lineup is a great way to protect the environment. Plus, it’s cost-effective (just think of all those disposable water bottles you’ve bought over time). Reusable water bottles are made with three main materials: plastic, glass or stainless steel. Choosing a style comes down to your personal preference. Plastic styles are the lightest but can develop a bad smell or taste if they’re not cleaned often. Glass bottles don’t tend to hold a bad taste but can be bulky and more fragile. Meanwhile, stainless steel bottles are typically insulated but can also be heavy and dent easily. Aside from the material used, you can also choose from options with different lid types. For shopping made easy, we’ve rounded up some great reusable water bottles you can buy. Discover them ahead.
