The best part of this BPA- and halogen-free plastic water bottle is the citrus juicer at the bottom, along with a compartment for storing fresh fruit. Infuse your water with a squeeze of lemon as you head into work, and suddenly your office will feel much more spa-like.
This bottle should be your go-to if you want to avoid plastic, but are too clumsy to handle a fragile glass container. The colorful silicone sleeve, available in teal, magenta, and gray, protects the glass bottle from bumps. And if you have a tendency to neglect your water bottle in your grungy gym bag for days at a time, the dishwasher-safe lid and body make it easy to ensure a germ-free sip.
The filter cage inside this BPA-free, dishwasher-safe bottle does double duty: Insert a carbon filter and let it make your tap water taste better, or remove the filter and add fruit slices to infuse each sip with flavor. Each replacement filtercosts less than $4—which seems like a small price to pay when you consider that it replaces 300 disposable plastic bottles.
Memobottle From $24
Beginning as a Kickstarter campaign, Memobottle took off with its innovative design that rethinks the cylindrical water bottle. Available in standard paper sizes, like A4 and A5, it’s no surprise that these flat, rectangular vessels slip seamlessly into your bag, right next to your notebook or laptop.
