A few weeks ago, I put together a list of the cutest travel mugs available at the moment. Today, I’m back with the same concept, but this time we’re talking about reusable water bottles! If you’re thinking about ways to cut back on waste, one of the easiest ways to make an impact is to stop buying (plastic-) bottled water. Throughout the UK, it is estimated that over 38 MILLION plastic bottles are thrown away each day, and that only about half are recycled (The Guardian 2018). That is a crazy amount of plastic with a very short lifespan – think about how long it takes you to drink a bottle of water.
Thankfully, this is one of the few problems in life that has a relatively easy solution: but yourself a re-useable waterbottle to carry around with you. You can fill it up at home before you leave the house, at work, and at most cafes out and about. Of course, there might still be situation where you just find yourself in a pinch and need to buy some bottled water, but generally, reuseable water bottles can hugely reduce the amount of disposable bottles an individual goes through in a year. And, as mentioned in the Guardian article linked above, there are plans to roll out a nationwide ‘water-network’, which would make re-filling on-the-go even easier!
To make choosing your bottle a bit easier, I’ve put together my 12 favourite reusable water bottles for you to browse. As always, I’ve included a range of sizes and price ranges to suit everybody.
