Lifefactory Water Bottles
11. Lifefactory Water Bottles ($19.99 for 16-oz. bottles/$21.99 for 22-oz. bottles; lifefactory.com)
Why we like them:
The problem with plastic water bottles is that many not only release
harmful chemicals such as BPA's, but some are too narrow
or difficult to wash properly.
Lifefactory’s sporty-stylish glass bottles feature a wide mouth (so
it’s super easy to clean),
have a silicone sleeve that
protects the bottle from breaking, and, you’ll actually notice a fresher
taste from your water
(compared to drinking from a
traditional water bottle). That difference alone can help you drink
more—so you always stay well-hydrated
as you exercise.

I drink a lot of water. Not just because I'm supposed to, but because I've developed a taste for it, a craving. I'm never without my trusty reusable water bottle even on a short trip to the grocery store.
But since I ditched the disposable plastic, I realized that my water bottle is yet another accessory that I carry around with me all the time wherever I go. Shouldn't it reflect my personality? Absolutely! So now, if you were to peek inside my kitchen cabinet, much like shoes in my closet, you'll find a variety of stylish reusable bottles lined up and ready to go. From casual to dressy to water filtration, I have a water bottle for every occasion.
Here, I take a look at 10 of the most beautiful (and useful) water bottles on the market. These ain't your average SIGG bottles.
