Plastic pollution needs to be taken seriously because it’s littering our oceans and killing marine life. While companies need to do their part in replacing the plastic they use to produce the products commonly using plastic, we can also do our best to avoid plastic. Globally, humans buy a million plastic water bottles per minute and 91 percent are not recycled. Hydration is important though, so rather than leaving your water drinking choices to chance and having to buy plastic bottles when you’re out and about and suddenly get thirsty, why not carry around your own reusable water bottle?
With your own reusable water bottle, you save money on all the water bottles you’d be buying if you had to buy one every time you got thirsty while outside or running errands. You’d also have the option of refilling it with water as often as you’d like or even other liquids. You’ll always be prepared! We want to help you stay hydrated while avoiding plastic, so we put together 15 reusable water bottles available on Amazon ranging from stainless steel and glass to bottles with infusers, filters, and straws for all different preferences!
Stainless Steel Water Bottles
1. HYDRO CELL Stainless Steel Water Bottle
The HYDRO CELL Stainless Steel Water Bottle has a stainless-steel screw cap which creates an air tight vacuum seal and is great for travel and outdoor adventures. Each bottle comes with a second lid, a sport cap with straw but it isn’t as air tight. This bottle keeps cold liquids cold for 24 hours and hot liquids hot for up to 8 hours. It’s available in many colors and sizes for $19.99.
Steven says, “I absolutely love this water bottle! It goes everywhere with me – I’m never away from ice cold water. When filling the bottle to the top with ice and adding water, the water stays cold for at least 36 hours. With the 40 oz bottle, the ice melts at a rate of about 1/3 every 12 hours. I don’t use the steel lid much, but it does work well the few times I have used it.”
2. S’well Vacuum Insulated Stainless Steel Water Bottle
S’well Vacuum Insulated Stainless Steel Water Bottle has triple-walled construction and is designed to keep beverages cold for 24 hours or hot for 12. These bottles are made from premium grade, BPA-free stainless steel. These bottles are available in multiple colors for the price of $32.65.
Zach says, “I won’t lie, S’wells are pretty pricey and there’s no hiding that. But for me, as someone who is terrible at drinking water, I found that by spending $35 on a water bottle there was no possible way for me to NOT use it (like damn, I just spent $35 on this thing. I have to use it). So that was my mentality going in and so far its worked and I’ve been able to go through a few refills a day now (which is significantly better than my 5 Diet Cokes/day).”
3. Hydro Flask Stainless Steel Water Bottle
Hydro Flask Stainless Steel Water Bottles are made with non-toxic BPA-free plastic and food-grade stainless steel. These bottles have a powder coat that allows for a solid grip. The TempShield insulation keeps hot drinks hot up to 6 hours and cold drinks cold for up to 24 hours. It’s available in multiple colors and various sizes: 18 oz, 32 oz, 40 oz, and 64 oz. A 40 oz cobalt bottle costs $42.95.
Renee says, “I didn’t really like how expensive it was (all my friends were raving about it, but I just couldn’t see the justification of a $35 water bottle but then i thought, well my cheap one keeps leaking so I guess I’ll just try it out and return it if I don’t like it or something) I wanted to get the smaller size, but there weren’t any more, so I got the 32 oz. but I’m really glad I did because it fits enough water to last most of the school/ work day without a refill (I drink a lot of water), its not too large or heavy in my backpack. I stuck with the standard lid it comes with. I was thinking about getting the straw lid, but my friend got the straw lid and it leaked all over the bottom of her backpack. So I just stuck with the standard one and I’ve had no problems with leakage. Wonderful purchase overall. I carry it everywhere.”
Glass Water Bottles
4. Lifefactory Glass Water Bottle

Lifefactory Glass Water Bottle is BPA-free, offering a pure taste without leaching from plastics or metals. It’s dishwasher safe and has a wide mouth for adding ice cubes, citrus slices, or even tea bags. It’s available in many colors and three different sizes: 12 ounce, 16 ounce, and 22 ounce. The price for an onyx 22 ounce bottle is $22.99.
Cat says, “Pros: Compact size. Smell – All my previous water bottles would cause the water to smell by the end of the day. Because they were plastic (even BPA free) or metal or glass with a smelly lid. I’ve forgotten to replace the water in this bottle and it was still odorless after more than two days. This is seriously the only water bottle I’d recommend.
Cons: My only complaint is it’s obviously heavier than a plastic bottle. A worthwhile tradeoff for me but I did keep my Nalgene for lightweight trips.”
5. Yomious Borosilicate Glass Water

Yomious Borosilicate Glass Water is free of BPA, PVS, lead, and cadmium. The glass is strong, lightweight, and durable. The glass and silicone are both also dishwasher safe. The lid is also leak-proof and made of bamboo. It’s available in seven colors and each costs $16.99.
An Amazon customer says, “We’ve been drinking from plastic bottles when we go out for walks and I worry about chemicals leaching from the plastic. We wanted to switch to a reusable glass water bottle because glass doesn’t bleed chemicals into your water like some plastics can.
We got one of these Yomious 20 Oz Borosilicate Glass Water Bottles with a bamboo lid, and now our water certainly tastes much fresher and cleaner than it did coming from a plastic bottle. And the glass is thick and durable; I dropped it once and it didn’t break. The bamboo lid closes tightly and doesn’t leak, even when the bottle is on its side.”
6. Brieftons Glass Water Bottles 6 Pack
This 6 pack of Brieftons Glass Water Bottles are lead-free and have an extra wide mouth, which makes them easy to clean and means you can fit in more than just water. The pack also includes a long bottle brush. The price for this pack of six glass water bottles is $19.95.
Auvy says, “I wanted a BPA free bottle that I could fit into my PACKIT freezable lunch bag. This was perfect. The height is just right for my bag, and more importantly, these bottles are of terrific quality. The glass seems fairly thick and solid. The outside of the caps appear to be stainless steel but the inside are a green silicone that have a gasket that provides a good seal. I use one bottle for tea for my lunch and we use other bottles to keep mouthwash in. My wife likes one flavor / color and I like another. These look great in the bathroom with those different colored liquids in each bottle. My wife also likes the fact that these came with a cleaning brush and that we didn’t have to go searching for one that fit these bottles.”
Water Bottles With Filters
7. LifeStraw Go Water Filter Bottles
LifeStraw Go Water Filter Bottles are reusable water bottles with BPA-free filters great for travel, backpacking, camping, and emergency kits. The LifeStraw hollow fiber membrane water filter removes bacteria and protozoa from lakes and streams to ensure safe, clean drinking water. It works by a 2-stage activated carbon filter that reduces odor, chlorine, and leaves zero aftertaste. They are available in six colors and with the choice of 2-stage and 1-stage filters. A 2-stage blue bottle costs $36.84.
John says, “After using the Go Water Bottle on the trail for 3 hikes, I was in love. Simply put, the LifeStraw Go Water Bottle is easily one of the best hiking accessories I’ve ever used. It’s essentially a BPA free water bottle with a built-in water filter for a straw. You can literally scoop water from the stream into the bottle and drink it directly through the straw without waiting. The water has absolutely zero bad aftertaste as far as I can tell. The manufacturer claims it should filter 264 gallons of water before the filter needs to be replaced and should filter out 99.9999 percent of bacteria and 99.9 percent of parasites. However, they do recommend using a water purification tablet anywhere where human sewage might be present because it will not filter out viruses.”
8. pH HYDRATE Glass Alkaline Water Bottle
The pH HYDRATE Glass Alkaline Water Bottle increases water pH and -ORP, which not only improves the taste and smell, but adds minerals like zinc, magnesium, selenium and iron, and eliminating heavy metals like arsenic, mercury, copper, and lead. The price for a 300 ml bottle is $38.97 and $43.97 for a 400 ml.
Amberlea says, “After purchasing a countertop water filter I would make sure to always fill up my water bottle with filtered water. When I was on the go I would not drink as much because I knew I needed to make the water last. This glass alkaline water bottle solved the problem now I can drink as much as I want knowing I can refill it and the water will be safe, and delicious!!!! It looks beautiful, is high quality, and doesn’t leave condensation. I just wish I got the 400ml, maybe that will be my next purchase. :)”
9. Brita Premium Water Filter Bottle
Brita Premium Water Filter Bottle filters water as you drink it, reducing chlorine found in tap water. The bottle is sleek and holds 26 ounces, fitting most car cup holders. The plastic is durable, BPA-free, and hard-sided plastic. There’s a built-in carrying loop and an enclosed straw. It’s also dishwasher safe. There are many colors available and they cost $19.94.
KayLee says, “I absolutely love this water bottle. It’s a little bit of an investment to buy the bottle and the 5 pack of filters, but it’s absolutely worth every penny. If you think about it, this bottle will pay for itself many times over. I haven’t ran into issues with the durability or anything like that. I have the orchid color; and it’s gorgeous. Water is very easy to drink and it tastes clean. If you’re thinking about buying one, I would go ahead and do so. Great quality investment, and it also makes drinking water so much easier surprisingly!”
10. Hydracy Fruit Infuser Water Bottle
The Hydracy Fruit Infuser Water Bottle is large with a 32 ounce capacity for liquid and has a full length infuser basket. This bottle is sweat proof, so you wouldn’t have to deal with condensation. It’s built with BPA-free eco-friendly Eastman Tritan. The metal ring latch on the flip top ensures that the bottle is securely sealed and completely leakproof. It’s available in 10 colors and costs $14.97.
An Amazon customer says, “I never knew a water bottle could make me this happy. Seriously. I ADORE the bright yellow color, it makes me smile and jives with any colors I put in it. I was worried about getting the 32oz since I have small hands, but there are indented grips on both sides and the way the lid screws on you’re drinking from the perfect angle and it all fits. The bottle does sweat a bit but I just use the sleeve if needed. I think water tastes gross and know I need to drink more of it. I infused water in normal 24oz bottles before which was better but not great. I didn’t even want one with a timeline like this has because I feared it would stress me out. But there’s something about this bottle. The timeline is easily ignorable on the back yet I find myself checking it and even drinking MORE than it asks. It’s just so cute and cheery and well-made.”
11. AquaFrut Fruit Infuser Water Bottle
AquaFrut Fruit Infuser Water Bottle is 32 ounces and has a full length fruit chamber. The bottle is made of Tritan which is durable, shatter proof, and completely BPA free. It has a non-slip grip, secure lid locking latch, easy drinking spout, and convenient carrying hook. It’s available in eight colors. The prices varies by color from $8.70 to $10.99.
Andise says, “I love this product. I bought it about 2 years ago and still use it daily. It has been dropped, kicked, sat on, fell off the roof of the car, dragged down a trail when my dog took off with it attached to her leash, been exposed to 110 degree temperatures as well as below zero temperatures. The top is made out of a harder plastic then the rest of the bottle and that makes it a little easier to break. I did break one top, and was very very pleased with the customer service. Not only were they quick to respond, but I had a new top sent to me at no charge after I asked where to purchase one.”
12. asobu Stainless Steel Fruit Infuser
asobu Stainless Steel Fruit Infuser is a sleek, modern looking bottle with a fruit infuser. It’s made with double walled stainless steel and BPA-free tritan which keeps beverages cold for 12 hours. It’s available in six colors with the price ranging from $17.99 to $18.99.
An Amazon customer says, “I love this water bottle! I put mint leaves in the middle, it’s delicious. I love that it also looks very Artsy and Organic. A practical piece of Art! It’s rather small though, so I recommend getting several, so you have a few in the fridge ready to go.”
13. Contigo Autospout Ashland Water Bottle
The Contigo Autospout Ashland Water Bottle is BPA-free and has a pop up straw. There’s also a protective spout cover to keep dirt and germs from your water. The lid is leak proof and there’s a button for locking the pop up straw. The clip on handle also makes it easy to carry around on the go, and it’s dishwasher safe! There are many colors and sizes available; a 24 ounce blue bottle costs $11.96.
An Amazon customer says, “I love this water bottle. The size is perfect, it definitely doesn’t leak, the mouth piece is cushioned and it is true to color. BUT what am I doing wrong? It is VERY hard to suck the water out! I have started unscrewing the top a bit in order to get the water to come up the straw every time I take a drink. Kind of makes the hands free aspect a moot point and that’s really why I bought it. I love the idea of not touching the mouth piece in order to open it and the button that pops the mouth piece up. If only I could get more than a drop of water at a time it’d be great! Any thoughts? What am I missing? There should be an air hole somewhere to release the suction.”
14. BOTTLED JOY BPA-Free Water Bottle With Straw/Flip Top
BOTTLED JOY BPA-Free Water Bottle With Straw/Flip Top is made with 100 percent non-toxic BPA-free food grade material. It has a convenient and visible suction nozzle, a bite valve that provides faster flow and enhanced durability. It’s available in many colors and only costs $10.99.
An Amazon customer says, ” Pros: Such a cute, good size water bottle! I always look for water bottles with straws it makes it easier for me to drink water! Also love how it came with two brushes to clean the straw and the bottle! Cons: it doesn’t have the amount of water you are drinking. I still give it a 5 :)”
15. EcoVessel Glass Water Bottle With Protective Silicone Sleeve and Flip Straw
The EcoVessel Glass Water Bottle has a protective silicone sleeve with a padded drop shield base and can withstand damage from drops of eight feet high. The opening is wide enough to fit ice cubes and has interchangeable tops so you can mix and match your bottles. The bottles are made of premium materials and up to 60 percent recycled glass. It’s also dishwasher safe. It’s available in six colors for around $15.00.
Melise says, “Really like this bottle so far (have had it less than a week). I was using a hand-me-down glass bottle from a friend, and really liked the way the water tasted from it. However, I discovered that I don’t drink near as much water when I don’t have a straw.
I was surprised how difficult it is to find highly rated glass bottles with straws. I don’t like using straws that you have to bite before drinking, so this was one of my best options. I use it at my desk at work, so the weight isn’t an issue. I also knocked it over on my desk, with the straw closed and it didn’t leak. I don’t know that it would be leakproof if I threw it in my gym bag, but it works well for what I need.”
