Finding the Best Water Bottle

I have grown up playing many sports and I have always used water bottles. I have travelled all over the world, lived in many countries, done extensive day trips and always used water bottles.

I’ve used good water bottles and seriously bad ones too. I have had favourites and then had favourites overtaken my favourites. At the end of the day, water is the best drink on earth and a great water bottle is essential, especially when travelling.

Some might think I am crazy, possibly a little obsessed about water bottles. But, hey, that’s just me. We are all different and some more “different” than others.

So let’s get back to basics and dive into the history of water, the bottling of it and the introduction of water bottles into modern day society.

Why Water Bottles?

Most of the portable water bottles you see today have not been around for long. Although, bottling water from the ground began back in 1622 in a small village in the UK. The demand came from villagers believing in the therapeutic benefits of this water. The first instance of commercial water bottling in the U.S began in Boston in 1767, again, people belived in the benefits of the “mineral” in the water.

Zoom forward a few decades and we have a billion dollar industry built on misleading market hype.

There is nothing more I hate than seeing people finish a disposable water bottle in thirty seconds and throw it away. I am guilty, I admit. When I am at home, I always use one of my many water bottles. But, when I am travelling and unsure of local water quality I buy awful disposal water bottles.

I have tried numerous advanced filtration water bottles and will review them in depth in further articles.

Water is truly the most beneficial liquid that we can consume. My mission is to find the best portable water bottle on the market. I want to make it easier for the world to remain hydrated, with minimal environment impact.

Six Water facts you need to know…

Is this possible? Is there one water bottle that is better than the rest? I will find the answer to this question. I will drink litres and litres to get the bottom of this.
