Review: S'well reusable bottles

I never go anywhere without my S'well bottle. Even when I just go to get groceries. I even bought a specific purse to fit my water bottle.

I've had my bottle for over three years now - as you can obviously see - but it still works perfectly. Well, the lid is a bit squeaky when I open and close it which is kinda annoying when I'm thirsty in the middle of the night and wake up the husband. But no more plastic bottles for me!

The S'well keeps my water cold, or warm, doesn't taste gross and drinking from a bottle like this just looks like you care. Oh, and S'well plants a tree for every bottle sold.

To create a single use plastic water bottle, it takes three times the amount of water that fits into a bottle to produce it. The amount of oil to create that bottle is one thirds of what could fit into it. This means that we could keep a million cars fuelled for a year with the amount of oil used to create a year's worth of single use bottles. Plus, plastic bottles don’t biodegrade but break down into smaller fragments over time. Those fragments absorb toxins that pollute our waterways, contaminate our soil and sicken our beautiful wildlife.

All valid reasons to drink from reusable (aluminium) bottles, don't you think?
