I think my water bottle addiction is getting as bad as my hand bag addiction. I have a few now, all very different but they do get used. I've got one where I can chuck my fruit into a plastic centrepiece and it lets fruit defuse out into the water flavouring it naturally and I have one that holds what looks like a gallon of water which is great as I don't have to keep refilling it every five minutes.
I have though been putting off buying one of these stainless steel ones for ages, I just couldn't make up my mind if I liked them. It's just a funny texture thing with me and I wondered if I fancied drinking from a metal bottle over a plastic one which to me has always felt more comfortable.
So I thought 'oh go on then I'll try one' and I really like it. These SHO bottles are available on Amazon in a variety of different colours and sizes. They are easy to clean and good quality. I thought these bottle would be heavy when filled but no it's light enough to transport around. I purchased the 500ml one in blue and it fits very nicely in my bag, in fact it goes everywhere with me now.
I love the fact that when I fill it with cold water it will stay cold for up to 24 hours, I prefer to drink iced cold water, I tend to be a bit reluctant to drink water if it's warmer, it just doesn't feel refreshing enough so this is a great plus for me. I can also fill it with a hot drink that will stay warm for up to 12 hours too so I can have my favourite brew in it! Oh I'm liking it now.
There is another reason for buying lots of water bottles as I'm trying to tempt my son into using one. He prefers drinking bottled water and I buy small bottles of water from the supermarket at an alarming rate. David Attenborough would not be pleased although the bottles do seem to be recyclable. It's not the point though, I feel I'm harming the environment every time I buy them which has got to stop, after all we only have 12 years to save the planet.....where is Flash Gordon when you need him.
The good news is that he does love this SHO bottle and is having one himself so it's looking promising. I have a water filter jug in the fridge and so buying bottled water seems a bit daft.
I bought this bottle for £16.99 which may seem a bit pricey but I think they are all around this price range, some more expensive. When you have bought one and a good quality one it will last you so it's a good investment and look, you're saving the planet. Well I feel good now.
