With so many reusable water bottle options out there it can be a tough decision on which one to get. With a variety of materials, sizes and styles choosing the right bottle for you can be a daunting experience, especially when shopping online. This blog will help you make the decision that suits your needs.
Stainless steel water bottles are a great choice if you spend a lot of time outdoors and involved in physical activities. Made from medical grade or food grade stainless steel, these bottles are strong and will handle being thrown about, while they may dint slightly it will still maintain its integrity. While some people say they can taste a 'metallic' flavour no dangerous substances can be leached from high quality stainless steel water bottles.
BPA Free Plastic
BPA free plastic water bottles are completely safe for you and will not leach any harmful substances. Unlike the plastic bottles bottled water comes in, BPA free plastic such as Tritan plastic does not leach harmful chemicals when the water in the bottle is heated up. BPA free plastic water bottles are light weight and easy to clean because they are often clear so not parts are missed.
Aluminium water bottles combine the strength of stainless steel water bottles but are much lighter so are perfect if you are always on the go. Aluminium water bottles require a lining on the inside of the bottle prevent the aluminium leaching into the water. These linings are inert and designed to move with the bottle as it gets older and the inevtible dints. Aluminium bottles can be more expensive than other bottles but are worth it for the quality and longevity.
Glass water bottles are completely inert which means they cannot leach any substances and cannot impart any flavours or smells into your water. While glass is the heaviest choice they are a very sturdy and strong choice as they are made from tempered glass that can withstand most bumps and drops. If you are looking for a traditional material look no further than glass water bottles.
