Whether you’re always on the go or just like to stay hydrated, a reusable water bottle is a good way to keep track of your water intake and keep your liquids cold. A reusable water bottle can also save you money and help the environment: According to Case Western Reserve University’s Office of Energy & Sustainability, Americans on average spend $5 a week on single-use water bottles and only recycle 23 percent of those bottles annually. The ones that do get recycled properly take up to 1,000 years to biodegrade, researchers added. Below, we rounded up some top rated water bottles from retailers like Amazon, Target and Walmart that can help you save money, stay hydrated and reduce your carbon footprint.
