Keep yourself hydrated throughout the toughest of workouts with these sustainable and stylish bottles.
Let’s talk about plastic. By now, we’re all aware of how bad our reliance on the material is, but still, we continue to buy it in our droves. Current statistics show that 1 million plastic bottles are bought around the world every minute – and that number is expected to rise another 20% by 2021. It’s a massive problem.
So, what can you do about it? It’s important to take water along to a workout, but whether you’re a self-described gym-obsessive or more of a once-in-a-while kind of gal, switching a single-use plastic bottle for something reusable could save a whole lot of plastic from ending up in landfill.
Thanks to the variety of reusable bottles on the market right now, it is currently easier than ever to pick up a bottle which is not only reusable, but also made from sustainable materials.
So without further ado, check out our edit of reusable drinking bottles so while you’re maintaining your physical health, you can help make the planet a bit healthier, too.
Eplanita Bamboo Water Bottle
Bamboo is strong, durable, safe, hygienic and, most importantly, sustainable – what more could you want from a potential water bottle? Even better, if you ever need to dispose of your bottle (because it breaks, for example) these bottles will completely degrade, leaving no waste. The cute pastel colouring of these eplanita bottles is a big bonus, too.
