Kids will soon be heading back to school…for real this time. No more online instruction or gym class in the living room. While it gives you a much needed break and them important peer social interaction, what it doesn’t do is give them is immediate access to clean, healthy hydration. Unfortunately, what will be easily accessible are sugary sodas and juices, both on campus and off.
In 2019, the American Heart Association issued a news release that reported frequent consumption of sugar-sweetened beverages leads to an increased risk of cardiovascular diseases. Additionally, the human brain is 75% water, and a 2017 study found that even mild dehydration has a negative impact on executive function.
Basically, a hydrated child is an alert, healthy child, so this year, before you send them on their academic way, tuck a reusable sports bottle filled with refreshing filtered water into their backpacks. They’ll be able to tote it with them throughout their busy day, refilling it as they go. It’s a great way to wean them off single-use plastics (and the scary leached chemicals that come with them), as well as instill a lifelong water habit.
Here are 5 GEO sports bottles that come in fun colors and designs and fit perfectly in a backpack.
One and Two: 24-Ounce Glass Bottles with Cutout-Detailed Protective Sleeves
Perfect for the mathlete or budding graphic designer, the GEO 24-Ounce Glass Bottle with Circle-Cutout Protective Sleeve and the GEO 24-Ounce Glass Bottle with Diamond-Cutout Protective Sleeve are made from highly durable borosilicate glass and encased in protective sleeves. One is detailed with circle cutouts and the other features a diamond lattice design. Each sports bottle includes a secure, BPA-free cap and comes in a range fun colors. And because we know you learned how to make soups during the pandemic, please note that each bottle can hold cold or hot liquids.
Three: 18-Ounce Glass Bottle with Protective Sleeve and Carrying Strap
A future earth scientist or environmentalist might prefer the GEO 18-Ounce Glass Sports Bottle with Protective Sleeve. Also made from sturdy borosilicate glass and encased in a protective sleeve, it includes a secure hand strap for easy tethering to backpacks and belts. This wide-mouth bottle also holds hot or cold beverages, has a secure screw cap, and comes in a range of cool-for-school colors.
For the student who pursues every sport or outdoor activity 200%, the tough GEO 17-Ounce Powder-Coated Stainless Steel Bottle with Carrying Handle is perfect. It comes in a pro-grade double-wall vacuum-sealed stainless steel design that’s also powder coated to prevent condensation. A rubber harness strap is securely attached to the tough screw cap, making the bottle easy to tether to belts or backpacks. This sleek bottle can carry hot and cold liquids and comes in 9 amazing colors.
Five: 28-Ounce Stainless Steel Wide-Mouth Sports Bottle
The amply sized GEO 28-Ounce Stainless Steel Wide-Mouth Sports Bottle makes the grade for the dawn-to-dusk student who belongs to every afterschool club the school has to offer. Like its younger sibling above, the bottle also comes in a pro-grade double-wall vacuum-sealed stainless steel design that’s powder coated to prevent condensation. The wide-mouth design makes it easy to pop a few ice cubes in, and the tight-fitting screw cap secures beverages, hot or cold. The bottle also features a rugged strap and comes in plenty of cool colors.
