A special congratulations to our winners Katie Allen (won our glow in the dark bottle) and Nicole Akerman (won our 24oz fly mouth bottle). Thanks to all who participated 🙂
A few years back I decided to try my first ever Bikram yoga class. For those of you who don’t know, Bikram is a ninety minute yoga class conducted in a room of 104 degrees. The class was insanely challenging and at the end of it, I felt that I had lost about a liter of sweat! All I wanted to do was chug my entire water bottle, a measly 16oz plastic bottle. That was before I had invested in a Nalgene bottle.
If you have never heard of them, Nalgene makes super durable water bottles in a variety of sizes (my favorite is the 32oz.) that are perfect for bringing along on any activity. Their bottles are BPA free, made in the USA and an awesome way to reduce your plastic usage. Another thing I really like about Nalgene is that if just the lid breaks you can buy just a replacement lid separately, saving you from wasting any extra plastic. Genius!
Tomorrow we officially make the move to Austin Texas, so I thought that this would be the perfect time to post about my favorite uses for buying a Nalgene bottle. We will be needing all the hydration we can get once we cross the border to Texas- especially with the backpacking trips and paddleboarding adventures we have planned.
BRINGING ALONG TO CLASSES/WORKOUTS
This is the most obvious time to have a reusable water bottle and save some serious plastic! I bring mine to yoga, spin and rock climbing. It is a perfect way to be sure that you stay totally hydrated while you sweat and also save plastic (and money!). If you need to know how much water you should be drinking, you can use this calculator.
This is another great use for keeping a Nalgene bottle on hand. Everytime we go camping we can bring both of our bottles along. The 32ox. glow in the dark wide mouth bottle is my favorite because it is super easy to find at night in our tent. A on the other hand loves the 24oz. on the fly bottle because the mouthpiece is the perfect spill-proof shape. They also come in handy for canoe trips, long hikes, paddleboarding etc. Basically anything super draining, natural, outdoorsy and fun, these bottles have your back. Side note: These were also a dream during the general moving process because once all of our glassware was packed away we still have water bottles to drink from.
Finally, this might just be a Texas necessity, but if I am going to be out of the house for more than 45 minutes, I need to have my Nalgene on hand. I get so thirsty just running around town dropping things off and picking things up, it can be dehydrating. I try to drink three full 32oz Nalgene bottles a day. It clears up my skin, makes me more energetic, and helps with digestion.
