Cheers To Plastic Reduction

Every year, millions of tons of plastic waste end up in landfills and oceans—most notably from cups and water bottles. And with climate change rapidly accelerating, we have to take action now to reduce our environmental footprint and waste, as much as we can. One small adjustment we can all make? Switching to a reusable water bottle.

We’ve found a few water bottle brands that are as eco-friendly as they are functional and stylish. These bottles will keep you feeling hydrated, no matter what beverage you’re sipping on, hot or cold. Hit the trails or the yoga studio (maybe with a new eco-friendly yoga mat?) with your new bottle in our favorite sustainable activewear. Cheers!
