Why You Need a Reusable Water Bottle
We love using a reusable water bottle for a few reasons, the first (of course!) being their impact on the planet. A whopping 373 million plastic water bottles end up as waste each year, so the Nourished Life team have all swapped out single use plastic bottles in favour of reusable options. Plastic doesn't decompose and instead becomes landfill, left to do nothing but pollute our planet, while a well-crafted reusable bottle can be used daily for years and years.
A reusable bottle is also far easier on the hip pocket. By refilling your own bottle at home each morning, you're saving yourself a few dollars each day (which really adds up quickly!) by not having to purchase a single use bottle of water.
We find that keeping a reusable water bottle on hand actually encourages us to drink more water, too! Having a bottle handy allows us to sip and stay hydrated throughout the day, getting us to that 2 litre daily target with ease. Reusable bottles are also made from higher quality materials than their single use plastic counterparts, with many possessing the ability to keep our water cooler for longer.
