Having your own reusable water bottle is a good idea for many reasons. Not only do you save money from not buying cheap plastic bottles on the go, but you also are making a sustainable choice by reducing your plastic waste. Additionally, it is vital to stay hydrated, and carrying a bottle with you wherever you go is a great way to make sure you keep sipping and avoid dehydration.
It is important to take a few things into consideration before purchasing reusable water bottles, as hopefully, they will be with you for a long time! Here are four things to think about before making a purchase.
You want your reusable water bottle to be long-lasting and able to survive through whatever you put it through. For example, if you are taking it hiking up mountains, you want it to be able to withstand different temperatures and for the material to be tough enough to not bend and leak.
Insulation is important if you want the contents of your bottle to stay at a certain temperature. Stainless steel bottles are great insulators. For example, our first edition Hippo bottles can keep your drink hot for twelve hours and cold for twenty-four hours – ideal for if you are out and about or travelling!
This is the fun part. You get to choose a bottle that completely matches your own identity and style. You can choose your favourite colour bottle, and even have your name written on it to give that extra personalisation.
Size is important as you want to make sure it’s big enough to carry enough liquid, but not too big that it takes up too much space and just adds more baggage. With our first edition bottles, you can get the bottles in 500ml, 350ml or even 340ml, so you’ll be able to find the perfect fit for you.
At Hippo, we have a range of reusable bottles and accessories to help you become a more sustainable shopper. Furthermore, throughout March we’re offering free personalisation for all of our bottles, so shop now to find your perfect bottle with a personalised touch today!
