In the food world, we do our best to help the environment by reducing food waste through composting and creatively using scraps. We're also big proponents of eliminating of single-use plastic when possible, and reusable water bottles are an easy way to do just that. In order to stick with the habit, it helps to have a water bottle you love. If keeping water cold is your primary concern, opt for a double wall insulated bottle. For something light and affordable, a BPA-free plastic bottle is the way to go. Whether you prefer a straw or a spout or an open mouth lid, there are plenty of options to find the right one for you. Read on for some of our favorites available on Amazon.
