It used to be really hard for me to drink water – I just didn’t like the taste (or lack thereof). If you’ve read an earlier post, you know that didn’t turn out very well. Now that I know how important it is, I make sure that I regularly pump myself with fluids. The downside of this is that temperatures of liquids start to change the second they are poured into your cup. In just an hour coffee is stone cold and water is lukewarm.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had to reheat my coffee because I got busy doing other things and forgot to drink it. Or how many times I’ve dumped out a cup of water because it just wasn’t cold enough. It’s really, really annoying.
In my search to find good-for-you and sustainable products, I came across a company that created a bottle with the ability to keep liquids cold for 24 hours and hot for 12. Healthy Human was started in late 2015 by Richard Stanton and Natalie Shultz, who wanted to find a way “to make people drink more water.” And what better way than with a reusable bottle that keeps drinks fresh for hours?
Healthy Human’s line of products are all 100% recyclable, Certified Paleo Friendly, BPA free, and made from 18/8 stainless steel.
I’m a skeptic by nature, so of course I had to put my stein water bottle through some rigorous tests of my own.
Bottle of ice water
- Sat in the hot sun on the seat of the car in 90-degree weather for one hour
- Kept out on the counter for 14 hours
Bottle of cold water
- Sat out on the counter without a lid for over 5 hours
Bottle of coffee
- Kept on the desk for the entire morning
Results: In each scenario, the liquid remained the same temperature from beginning to end. This bottle is unreal.
Why I Like It
- The Hawaiian pink color is so perfectly me!
- The 21oz size is, in Goldilocks’ words, “just right” – I fill it three times throughout the day and easily reach my targeted daily ounces.
- It keeps my water refreshingly cold.
- Drinks taste pure and fresh – no aftertaste and no “plastic bottle” taste.
- The bottle isn’t too cold or hot to the touch.
- No condensation or “sweat,” so no need for a coaster.
- Bottle is leak proof, which makes transportation super easy.
- It fits in the tiny cup holder of my Fiat.
- The cap easily screws on and is one size fits all – you can use it for any size bottle.
This is the perfect anywhere bottle. Take it camping, bike riding, or hiking. Bring it to work or school. Take it to the beach – it will keep your beverages cold even in the hot sun. Treat it like you do your wallet – never leave home without it!
This is the only water bottle you’ll ever need. But, of course you’ll want one in every style and color – they are so fun and playful. And, if you’re the generous type, you’ll want to buy them for everyone you know. Fill your bottle with water, coffee, smoothies, soup, the possibilities are endless!
