With such a heightened awareness of the evils of plastic, the options for reusable water bottles and straws are growing daily. Lighten your footprint by ditching the plastic and simplifying your travels (here and abroad). Here are some of our favorite travel gifts for water drinkers.
Hydration is crucial when traveling, yet it can be challenging to drink as much water as we need while on the go. Enter Liquid I.V., a mission-driven wellness brand whose oral rehydration packets can hydrate you two to three times faster than a regular glass of water. With a mission to change the world, they’re certainly helping by donating these sometimes life-saving packets to people who lack access to adequate clean water supplies.
A collapsible, eco-friendly hydration bottle, the Hydaway Bottle is the perfect fit for any travels or outdoor adventures. Made from food-grade silicone, the Hydaway bottle is portable, easy-to-use, and travels anywhere.
With a flip-up straw for quick sips, carabiner-friendly carry handle, and watertight guarantee, the bottle expands fully for drinking. When you’re finished, it collapses flat so you can stash it away. BPA-free, taste-free, odor-free and dishwasher safe, it’s available in 12 colors and perfect for any trip.
Skip the plastic cups on the plane and have your flight attendant refill this every time. We think this is one of the best travel gifts for water drinkers because you can eliminate so much single use plastic use on your flight alone!
When it comes to straws, EcoVessel sells a pack of four stainless steel straws with brightly colored silicone tips and a cleaning straw. The four pack enables consumers to easily join their mission to #LeaveLess plastic behind.
Dishwasher safe and BPA-free, the straws are wide enough for smoothies, while being narrow enough to fit any of their tumbler lids. A proud member of 1% for the Planet, EcoVessel donates 5% of sales to nonprofits.
The original ultralight travel-friendly “straw” filter, the LifeStraw makes contaminated water safe to drink by removing bacteria and parasites. As a result, it prevents the majority of waterborne diseases. Use it to drink directly from streams and lakes. Or fill up a container and use the LifeStraw to enjoy clean water on the go.
Weighing only two ounces, it’s long-lasting and perfect for travel. Once opened, the LifeStraw can filter up to 1,000 gallons, providing an individual with more than five years of safe drinking water. For every product sold, one child receives one year of clean drinking water
