5 Benefits of Using Reusable Water Bottles

Reusable water bottles are more than just convenient. In fact, reusable bottles are great for the environment and your wallet. Let’s dive further into some of the benefits you can expect.

#1. Reduces Plastic Waste

Did you know that it can take 20 to 500 years for plastic to decompose? It’s true. Landfills are required to store this plastic and other solid waste. Unfortunately, landfills produce dangerous gasses that harm our planet, such as methane gas.

The dangers of plastic waste don’t stop there. For example, plastics are also dangerous to the marine life that call our oceans home.

Eco-friendly reusable water bottles reduce the number of plastic bottles found in landfills and oceans. This means that by switching to a reusable bottle, you can do your part in reducing plastic waste.

#2. Allows You to Make a Smaller Carbon Footprint

Plastic is made using a ton of oil and gas. Unfortunately, the use of oil and gas results in greenhouse gas emissions, a key driver of dangerous climate change.

Avoiding the use of plastic in your day-to-day is a great way to reduce your own carbon footprint. Replacing your plastic water bottles with reusable ones is a simple and quick change you can make today.

#3. Saves You Cash

Depending on the kind of water you enjoy, you may find yourself spending a few dollars each time you buy a new bottle. And those dollars quickly add up, especially if you’re springing for a bottle several times a week.

Buying a reusable water bottle can help you save serious cash. Instead of buying a new bottle, you can simply refill a reusable one over and over again.

#4. Holds Hot & Cold Beverages

Many reusable water bottles are also versatile. For example, a stainless steel bottle or tumbler will hold any of your favorite beverages, whether it’s hot coffee or ice-cold water.

Plus, some bottles, such as the BrüMate ReHydration 25oz, are triple-insulated and made to keep your water cold for hours on end. This makes them perfect for the office, an outdoor hike, a road trip, or anywhere else your day takes you.

#5. Withstands Wear and Tear

If you’ve dropped a plastic water bottle, you know firsthand just how fragile they are. Reusable water bottles are made using rugged materials such as stainless steel. This means they withstand a lot of the wear and tear that’s harsh on plastic bottles.

What Makes a Good Reusable Water Bottle?

Sold on the benefits of using reusable water bottles and ready to make the switch? You should know that not all reusable water bottles are created equal.

The best reusable water bottles are:

  • Insulated: For water that’s cool to the last drop, you need an insulated water bottle. Shameless plug: BrüMate water bottles and tumblers are triple-insulated to ensure each sip is as cold as the first.

  • Leakproof: The best water bottles are completely leakproof with spillproof features. For example, BrüMate bottles feature 100% leakproof lids, a variety of sipping options, and non-slip bases.

  • Travel-friendly: Reusable water bottles should be easy to carry with you from one adventure to the next. Choose a bottle with a sturdy handle or an easy-carry loop. It’s also a great idea to look for a bottle that will fit in your cupholders.

  • Stylish: Let’s face it: no one wants to drink from a boring water bottle - choose a bottle that fits your unique style! BrüMate offers a ton of fashionable and on-trend colors and designs to choose from (you can even personalize your bottle too).
