Ok, I realize this is way off from what I normally blog about – but I sincerely love my water bottle and really need to share it. I’m so obsessed, I’ve given these bottles as gifts to literally every one of my family members.
Being an avid internet creeper, I found myself engrossed in a documentary about plastic water bottles a couple of years ago. I’ve read, in passing, that you shouldn’t keep disposable bottles in a warm car because chemicals can leak into the water and can cause breast cancer. Horrible. But there’s about a million other little ways that disposable plastic bottles can negatively affect you, and the environment. I won’t get preachy now, but if you’re interested, here’s a video by Vice about where plastic goes when it floats into the ocean, and here’s a short article about how the chemicals in plastic affect women. Ick.
Anyway, I decided it was time to help out in a little way and get a reusable bottle. I needed one that could keep drinks cold, hold juices (or let’s be real here, vodka red bull), and hopefully looked decent. I’m no square! I ended up at Good Life Bottles. My favorite thing about them is that they’re recyclable – not a lot of reusable bottles can say that – and I’ve only had to recycle one so far. My also favorite thing about them is that they’re a cool, honest company. Their bottles have a “limited lifetime warranty,” and when the bottom fell off my heavily used bottle, they sent me two new ones because they didn’t have my color any more. That’s love.
These water bottles look cute in a bunch of colors, they keep drinks cold (or hot) for hours, they never give off a metallic taste or scent, and they’re completely non-toxic. OH, and dishwasher safe (except the cap). Miracle bottle, seriously.
The 1000mL Venture Bottle ($29.95), 700mL Traveler Bottle ($26.95) and 500mL Go Bottle are on Good Life’s website at goodlifebottles.com. I should also add that they’re available at Target in blue and red, but the Target ones aren’t covered by the warranty.. and they’re also oddly leaky (my original Good Life bottles never leak at all). Buy directly from the website if you get ’em!
Stay healthy, friends.
*As a side note, I realize my blog posts are often about random products, and usually very positive reviews. I want to let it be known that I haven’t been paid or compensated by any of these companies, and I’m genuinely in love with all of my “best stuff”s. What we have together is the real deal!
