In keeping with my "step down from soda" plan, I'm just about ready to ditch my flavored waters in favor of straight aqua. And that means I'm ready to say goodbye to evil bottled water with its enormous price markup and nefarious waste of petroleum and landfill clutter.
Part of the joy of making a lifestyle change is shopping for the accessories. Following a lead from Cool Tools, I'm considering a Sigg aluminum water bottle instead of the plastic kind you can pick up at your local big-box. Pros: no toxins leaching from the plastic, stylish, able to hold juices and carbonated drinks as well. Cons: well, it's pricey for a water bottle, but not so much for a positive life alteration.
Before I buy, I thought I'd solicit suggestions from you, the UTC reader. Do you carry a water bottle? What lessons do you have for me, and what products and practices would you suggest?
