It's no secret that everyone needs to stay hydrated throughout our daily activities - in fact, it's recommended that you drink 3 to 4 bottles a day to be precise! But in doing that, we should also avoid drinking nasty chemicals (single-use plastic bottles, we're looking at you.)

So what's the best solution? Say hello to eco friendly, reusable drink bottles!

But there's a lot to consider when you want to buy a water bottle. Glass or stainless steel? Drinking spout or screw top lid? Do they all have double-wall insulation? But I want one with a funky design? If these are the questions you need answered, this guide is for you — just before you go and buy the bottle that's gonna become part of your everyday routine!

Best Stainless Steel / Insulated Drink Bottles 

Stainless steel and insulated drink bottles are guaranteed to last you a lifetime, that is if you don't accidentally leave it somewhere you don't remember. (Happens all the time.)

They're known for keeping drinks warm or cool for hours on end (up to 18 or 24 hours for some!) On top of that, they're completely BPA free and way more lightweight than their glass counterparts, even though they're crafted from high-grade stainless steel.

Oasis and Avanti are two of our leading brands when it comes to stainless steel bottles. With a whole heap of patterns to choose from, you're sure to find the best stainless steel drink bottle right here!

Best Glass Bottles 

Let's face it, though — water doesn't taste any better than when it's coming out of a glass bottle and that's a fact. Plus it helps to see how much water you have left!

Glass is a crowd favourite for going eco friendly, because it comes without any metallic taste, so these reusable bottles are great for people who aren't super keen with stainless steel. (Just make sure you're not prone to dropping these when carrying them around!)
