Continually stopping to buy bottled water certainly has its drawbacks. It’s expensive, it warms up quickly, there is no room to add ice cubes, and then you’re stuck carrying the bottle around (or perhaps several of them) until you can dispose of them, ideally in a recycling bin. Even then, the purchase of bottled water greatly contributes to the plastic epidemic the planet currently faces.
When traveling, the setbacks increase dramatically, especially the expense. For example, at airports specifically, passengers are required to dump beverages before passing through TSA. So if you have bottled water in hand, you can kiss it goodbye. Similarly, if your travels include theme parks, museums, and zoos or aquariums, you can expect their rules to include ‘No Food or Drink’ unless it is purchased at designated areas within the facility. If you show up with bottled water, you will be expected to return it to your vehicle or toss it in the trash.
So what’s the solution? A well-made, REFILLABLE water bottle, such as the Hydro Flask that can be dumped when necessary and refilled as needed. And given that many airports and attractions offer refill stations, the flask is infinitely more economical than repeatedly purchasing bottled beverages.
Hydro Flask is made of non-toxic BPA-free plastics & 18/8 food-grade stainless steel so they are durable with stainless steel pivots and a flexible strap, allowing the cap to easily move as you do. Plus, they are made with Honeycomb Insulation, which allows for hot or cold beverages. According to the makers, cold drinks can be kept cold for up to 24 hours, hot drinks retain their warmth for up to 12 hours.
Conveniently, the bottles come in a variety of sizes, so you can choose the size that best fits your purse, backpack, bike holder, vehicle cup holder, or airport carry-on. Plus, the flasks are available in several bright colors to suit almost everyone’s personal style, and the wide opening makes it easily refillable with the ability to add small ice cubes. Additionally, the Hydro Flask features a powder coat that offers users a better grip than most stainless steel bottles, and the insulation prevents condensation from forming on the outside. ALL of this, PLUS using the flasks are MUCH better for the environment than bottled water which contributes to the overload of plastic threatening our oceans.
As if the bottles weren’t enough to convince you to use Hydro Flask, the company also makes food containers, coolers, and ice packs, and offers a wide selection of accessories such as cleaning brushes and alternate caps with straws, etc. Customers can also purchase slings for their flasks so that, in addition to using the strap to clip onto bikes or backpacks, there is also the option of slinging them across your shoulders while carrying them on hikes, etc.
