Now that we’re in a new decade, there are some things that we expect at an absolute base level with travel and sustainability. Hotels that only wash linens when you ask and not every day, check. Items not made of harmful materials, check. People who carry reusable bottles instead of buying single-use plastic bottles, working on it. Hotels that don’t give you those single-use bottles every night, OK, maybe there’s still a lot of work to do here.
Be part of the solution with a reusable bottle that does more than just carry your drink. The CamelBak Pivot .75 Bottle is made with Echo, a 10-percent renewable plant-based material (the spill-proof cap is BPA-free polypropylene).
The lightweight, durable bottle is easy to clean in the dishwasher (or hotel sink, for travelers) and is also odor and stain resistant. That helps when you’re drinking a lot of brown: soda, tea, or coffee. And having a bottle that avoids trapping odors and stains means that the bottle lasts longer and doesn’t end up in the trash sooner than necessary.
Note that one reason this bottle is lightweight is because it’s not vacuum-sealed, meant to keep hot things hot and cold things cold forever and ever, amen. There’s certainly a place for those bottles. This one is meant to be used for daily hydration—on the road, at home, or in the air. Simply having water with you means you’re going to drink more, and if you’re anything like me, you could definitely use more water.
One more thing I like about this bottle: The cap has a comfortable and useful grab-and-go loop that’s far larger than some other bottles’ tiny little circles that you can only fit a finger or two into.
The Pivot .75L Bottle comes in leaf (green), ice (blue), and cloud (gray) colors, and lists for $14 on the CamelBak site.
