Up to 60% of the human body is made up of water. Because of this, our cells need constant hydration to continuously dissolve and carry nutrients and oxygen to all the parts of the body. Water also helps to revitalise you from fatigue, and lessen the burden on your kidneys and your liver by flushing out waste regularly. So it’s important to keep yourself well-hydrated throughout the day! But if you’re out and about, busy with work and the many activities that fill up your daily routine, it can be hard to remember to hydrate regularly with quality water. Buying disposable water bottles, while an easy and quick solution, can only rack up your expenses on the daily, just as you ending up contributing to the plastic waste problem. And if that’s not enough to discourage you from grabbing that disposable water bottle, it’s also not advisable to drink from them either, as exposing them to wear and tear, or heat, could release potentially harmful chemicals into your drink, such as bisphenol A (BPA), or bisphenol S (BPS). Refilling these disposable water bottles with tap water isn’t a good idea either, as these bottles break down with regular use, and can expose you to more potentially harmful chemicals and carcinogens. Instead, using a reusable bottle such as a Camelbak drink bottle just might be the best solution for you!
Water samples from disposable plastic bottles have been tested to show that some might contain substances such as mold, microbes, benzene, and arsenic. These aren’t things that you want to ingest on the regular! Water is supposed to refresh and hydrate you, so that you are energised and can keep doing the things you love. Unhealthy, potentially harmful water sources do the opposite of this, so it’s important to be mindful of where you get your water, from its container to the type of water that you are drinking.
But don’t fret! Staying hydrated doesn’t need to be expensive, wasteful, or harmful to your health. Grabbing a high quality reusable drink bottle and filling it up with your water of choice at home (we recommend spring water, it’s the best kind for you!) means that you can have refreshment at your fingertips at any time during the day. So not only will you save money in the long run, you’re also helping the environment while keeping your body healthy and happy.
And if you’re wondering where to get a high quality reusable bottle, Aussie Natural Water offers Camelbak bottles to perfectly suit your style and needs. So you can fill your bottle up with the best spring water and keep yourself revitalised with no worries.
