Why we should use reusable water bottles?

The purpose

Eco cars, eco garden, eco fruit, eco tea, etc. These are just some of the things with which human beings are trying to contribute to help Mother Nature get to its basics. In the last couple of years there has been another ‘’eco thing’’ added to the ‘’let’s help the nature’’ list: reusable water bottles.

Reusable water bottles are not just ecological but can also be stylish. Their design and their colors have no limits. You can choose from plastic translucent to steel, from pink to black, etc. water bottles. Everyone can find one for their taste. And everyone should, because the bottles will be used over and over again. That’s why they are called reusable.

Keep it clean

If we want to have our water bottle reused many times and many years (that is the purpose, right?), we have to clean it regularly and thoroughly. The two best and natural ways to clean the water bottle are using either vinegar or baking soda. We use both with hot water.

If you use vinegar, fill the bottle with about 1 deciliter of white vinegar and fill the rest with hot water. Shake it, leave like this until the next day and then wash it out with hot water again.

It is similar with the soda. Put a small spoon of baking soda in your reusable bottle, fill it with hot water and shake it. Let is clean over the night and wash it out the next day.

What to choose?

As I said before, there are many different kinds of reusable water bottles available on the market and many kinds of materials. Although, metal materials like stainless steel or aluminum are the easiest to clean. Unlike plastic bottles, which can get smelly and full of bacteria, metal bottles are easier to protect from these kinds of things. Furthermore, water bottles made of metal materials are also capable of holding cold and warm drinks longer and are durable.

Reusable water bottles join two things: design and ecology. With these bottles we show that we care about the environment and the nature that gives us life. Not just recycling and turning off the lights, reusable water bottles are a step forward in helping the human race living in contact with the nature again.
