It’s more important than ever to bring your own water bottle or drinking vessel with you wherever you go, both for environmental reasons as well as health and safety concerns. EcoVessel has several options for family travel and at-home use that we’ve been testing out on daily walks close to home.
The New Wave bottle is lightweight and portable, made of plastic which is BPA Free, BPS Free, and Phthalate Free. I like the indented comfort grip, which makes it easy to grasp while holding it. You get a flip spout with a removable silicone straw for easy cleaning. The flip top/straw system works great for use at home at during sports, but I prefer a standard lid for air travel, because of the pressure changes and possible expansion in the bottle.
The WAVE features fun ‘ombre’ colors, Galactic Ocean and Rising Sun, or you can get standard single-color bottles, too. Pick one up for under $15 for the 24 ounce size.
The Frost: If you’ve got kids at home, the Frost insulated bottles also come with a flip top and straw. Designed for cold drinks, features include tilt-free drinking with the silicone straw, which is easier for little ones, and a soft touch carrying handle just like Mom or Dad’s. It comes in multiple fun designs that can be gender-neutral, which I appreciate, and the 12 ounce size fits in most lunchboxes and backpacks. They’re BPA-free and work great for day hikes. Pick up your favorite color and patter for $24.95.
