Plastic water bottles not only look disgusting, they’re also ruining our environment.
Only one in five of them are recycled. That’s dire because they take anywhere between 400 – 1,000 years to decompose. Bad.
There’s heaps more scary and terrible facts about the evil of plastic, but there’s an alternative; buying a sleek, reusable bottle, baby.
Here are our picks of the lot.
The Mous (yes, it’s pronounced ‘mouse’) Fitness Bottle is an Aussie invention by Melbourne blokes, Jarahad Valeri and Matthew Kempe.
It’s protein shaker bottle, water infuser and sleek water bottle all in one. The beauty of this nifty product is that it’s got a round bottom, meaning your protein powder won’t get stuck in any corners and create a hell-raising stench. It’s so genius that it was included in the nuts Oscars swag bag this year.
I have one of these, and every time I whip it out in public, without fail, I get the same question: “what is that?!”
Around since 2011, bkr want to rid the world of fugly plastic bottles and replace them with lovely, reusable ones.
The fact is, every liquid substance tastes better when you drink it outta a glass vessel. The bottles’ small mouths and silicone sleeves are instantly recognisable and provide a superior drinking experience.
