I looooove water. It is my favorite beverage, hands down. For years I bought cases of bottled water to enjoy. However, several years ago I became cognizant of how wasteful bottled water is, and started using a water filter (my current favorite is by PUR). The next item I needed to find—a refillable water bottle. For the last few years, I’ve used SIGG aluminum water bottles. They are great, except for two things: they need to be handwashed, and they take two hands to open. So I’ve been keeping an eye out for something new.
On recommendation from my sisters, I tried the Contigo Addison water bottle. Y’all, this bottle is amazing. It is made of BPA-free plastic, it’s leak proof, shatter resistant, and is top-rack dishwasher safe. Yes!!! Plus, it is so freaking easy to use with one hand—just push the button and the spout pops up. Drink from it like you would a straw, then press the spout back down. The part you drink from is protected, so it stays clean when the spout is down. This would be great for travel—just drop it in your briefcase or personal item and refill once you go through security.
They are available at lots of places—Target, online and in stores ($12.99), the Contigo website ($12.99), and Amazon (one for $12.22 or 3 for $33.80). I got mine from Costco, and paid $19.99 for three—so if you have a Costco membership, this is clearly the way to go. They are available in a variety of colors (blue, yellow, green, gray, purple, and orange are the ones I saw). So pick one up and stay hydrated on your travels!
