    Top 5 Water Bottles on the Market

    How hydrated are you? Most Americans fall short of the recommended 8 glasses of water a day. In our fast-paced society, many people are constantly on the go, juggling work with family activities, extracurriculars, and social gatherings. To ensure you’re getting enough water while out and about, a refillable water bottle is the best option.

    But it seems like the market is flooded with similar water bottles, and the amount of choices can be overwhelming. How can you know which water bottle is the most insulated, or the easiest to clean, or the most durable? Luckily, we’ve put together a handy guide. Here’s the Pelican Water breakdown on the best water bottles you can buy.

    • Contigo Autoseal Water Bottle – one of the most durable water bottles on the market, this water bottle isn’t kidding around with its “Autoseal.” Virtually leak-proof, this water bottle from Contigo seals between sips. There’s no spout, meaning spillage isn’t a concern. Great for on the go drinking and sports, the Autoseal is made from BPA-free plastic.
    • Swell – When it comes to drink insulation Swell is a “swell” choice – it can keep drinks like water cold for 24 hours, and drinks like tea hot for 12 hours. Wow! This reusable water bottle is made from stainless steel and is expertly crafted. Swell is passionate about conservation and the environment – much of their proceeds go to charities and conservation groups.
    • Asobu Infuser Water Bottle – Dishwasher-safe, BPA-free, and extremely durable, this water bottle from Asobu is one of the leading infuser bottles on the market. The center compartment is perfect for adding a fruity splash to your daily dose of water. An added bonus: the infuser water bottle can withstand subfreezing and boiling temperatures due to the high tech casing material.
    • Alex Bottle – The Alex Bottle solves the seemingly insurmountable problem of “how do I properly clean my water bottle when the opening is too small for a sponge?” It opens in the middle, so you can easily clean it with your other dishes and collapse it for storage in tight spaces. Though its design and function mean the Alex Bottle is more bulky than other water bottles, the easy-clean aspect makes it a worthwhile investment.
    • Pelican Water Infuser Bottle – our own infuser water bottle features an array of benefits, and is one of the most competitively priced water bottles out there. This reusable, BPA-free bottle makes it easy to add a hint of mint or lemon, or infuse your drink with summertime strawberries with the conveniently sized infuser cage and strainer.

    No matter which water bottle you choose, getting into the habit of taking a reusable water bottle with you every day ensures you’re hydrated, ready to go, and actively helping the environment.
