In the plight against plastics and working towards a sustainable lifestyle, one of the OG poster children has been the humble water bottle. What started off as nothing more than a workhorse, has now morphed into a fashion statement, so say goodbye to the stagnant Nalgenes of your youth and S’wells of the early 2010s, and hello to staying hydrated in style.
