Why That Special Dad in Your Life Will Love a Be Bottle

 

Every year, June rolls around and we find ourselves asking what we can give that special Dad in our lives that is cool, unique, and most importantly, something he will actually use. Give him the gift of functional hydration, something he'll use every day! 

 

Here are a few reasons why he will use his Be Bottle all day, every day.

 

1. Be Bottles are Easy-to-Clean

Dads are busy and don’t really enjoy spending too much time on dishes (but does anyone?). The good news is that the Be Bottle has a narrow and wide-mouth spout, and a removable bottom--making this an easy-to-clean bottle! How many times have you seen bottles piling up next to the sink because you are dreading the tedious and often times complex cleaning procedures? And let’s not forget those narrow mouth spouts, you can barely fit an ice cube in there, much less a sponge. Dads all around can rejoice in knowing they can drink water, beer, smoothies, tea, and anything they want without fear of flavor hangover. 

2. Removable Bottom = Optional Infuser Cage

Water is necessary for life, but it doesn’t have to be boring! The infuser cage allows for fruit infusions, herbal additions, and easy brewing coffee and tea, but don’t stop there. This bottle was designed for style but engineered for his tastes. He’ll never suffer from a boring beverage again. Lemon water anyone?

3. Innovative, Modern, and Stylish

Dads don’t spend all day in one spot. Their day is full of commutes, meetings, appointments, workouts, and more! He needs a bottle that can go with him anywhere. Lucky for him, a Be Bottle is designed to function in any environment. Backed by it’s double-walled, vacuum sealed insulation, a Be Bottle will keep his drinks hot for 12 hours and cold for 24 hours. This little gem of a bottle will become his favorite accessory AND will keep him hydrated- a watch can’t do that.

 

We’ve created the perfect gift for a special Dad, but don’t wait too long--Father’s Day is June 17th. If you order by June 13th and choose three day shipping, we’ll make sure it gets there on time.

Why Your Kids Are Going to Love These Cool Water Bottles

 

Cool Water Bottle

 

When you’re a parent with young kids and always on-the-go, you know how difficult it can be to maintain a healthy lifestyle for your family. Staying hydrated is key, but with the constant demands that life can place on you, it can be hard to keep that balance, especially with additional responsibilities on top of work, school, after-school activities. That is why Be Bottle is such an amazing choice for a family on-the-go. And here’s an added bonus: kids will love having a cool water bottle that was designed by kids, for kids.

They keep them hydrated

As a parent, you always want the best for your children. That includes keeping them happy, healthy, and active. Studies completed by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services have shown that only one in three children completes some form of physical activity per day. Even more, children spend more than seven hours in front of a screen, whether it be the television, computer, or a smartphone. While leisure activities can be great for unwinding after a long day, growing children need physical activity to exert energy and use their imagination. Providing your child with a Be Bottle is a great first step to encouraging hydration and physical activity. Whether they take it to school and have it on their desk or bring it to after-school activities, this insulated water bottle will help remind them to stay hydrated all day long.

They’re chemical-free

Be Bottle is made of 18/8 FDA-approved food-grade, stainless-steel, and BPA-free plastic. It has been independently lab-tested and certified to be BPA-, lead-, and phthalate-free adhering to FDA and LFGB standards. This is important for keeping your child healthy and not exposing them to dangerous chemicals or materials.

Keeps their cool longer

Research indicates that staying hydrated throughout the day can help children remain focused and become better learners. While this may not be high on your child’s needs in a water bottle, it will benefit them in the long run. Be Bottle’s products will keep their water cold from home, throughout the day, all the way until lunch, making them more inclined to hydrate. It can then be refilled for after-school activities and keep that water cool during sports practice. In total, Be Bottle can keep your child’s beverages hot for 12 hours and cold for up to 24 hours.

Consistently having a bottle on hand for whatever beverage your child wants is a solid way to teach them about hydration, a lesson they can take with them as they continue to grow. The great thing about Be Bottle is that you don’t have to limit yourself to water. Fill it with a morning smoothie full of veggies and fruits or bring hot chocolate to a late game on a cool night. It’s versatile, which is what kids need to keep their interest piqued and their palates quenched.

Hilinski’s Hope Blog

Tyler Hilinski

 

Earlier this year, Coug Nation suffered a terrible loss when WSU quarterback, Tyler Hilinski took his own life, leaving behind thousands who ask themselves every day, “What could I have done differently?” We cannot change the past, be we can change the future. In honor of Tyler’s legacy, Kym and Mark Hilinski started Hilinski’s Hope, a foundation with the mission “to educate, advocate and remove the stigma associated with mental illness.” The foundation also raises money to fund programs that provide student-athletes the tools to support their mental health and wellness.

Drew Bledsoe, our chief Brand Champion and WSU Alumni, was one of thousands affected by Tyler’s loss. With the full support of Kym and Mark Hilinski, we are proud and honored to offer a special edition #3 Be Bottle, where all proceeds will go to Hilinski’s Hope. Together, we can preserve Tyler’s legacy and “Be The Change” in the stigma of mental health. 

Be Bottle's mission is to crush the plastic epidemic and encourage everyone to “Be The Change.” Partnering with the Hilinski family and Hilinski’s Hope gives us the opportunity to go one step further by raising money for an illness that has no face. Let’s come together and revolutionize the way we think about our world, remove the stigma we associate with mental illness, and shift our habits with plastic waste. It’s time to “Be The Change!”  

5 Reasons Why This Is the Best Water Bottle for Work

 

The right water bottle means different things for different people. An athlete may be searching for a long-lasting durable product, a busy parent may need versatility that moves with their lifestyle, and an environmentally conscious individual may search for a sustainable product. While these people are similar in many ways, the water bottles they have in mind may be vastly different. But what if these individuals wear several hats? Busy parent, “on the go” professional, and eco-conscious all wrapped into one. If you are a busy professional considering purchasing a Be Bottle, here are five reasons why this is the best water bottle for you.

1. It’s versatile

With the ever-changing demands at work constantly pulling us in different directions, our needs may change daily or even hourly. In times like these, it is important to have a water bottle that can adapt to all of our needs. With its stylish functionality, the Be Bottle makes drinking ice water, flavored water, tea, or even coffee a unique experience. The bottle itself comes in classic colors, including Rose Gold Pink, and features a removable bottom, an infuser, and insulation to keep beverages hot or cold. The Be Bottle is not your average water bottle.  It can change throughout your work day, from coffee or tea, to water, to an infused drink that’s perfect during your lunch break outside on the patio.

 2. An infuser is included for your morning tea or fruit-flavored water

Fancy a hot cup of tea or coffee as you settle in at your desk in the morning? Perhaps you are interested in fruit-infused water or adding a hint of lemon. The Be Bottle’s infuser provides the ability for a little more oomph than a glass of water in the morning! The infuser is convenient and offers many options for the flavors our taste buds crave on a daily basis.  

 3. It’s easy to clean

We’ve all been there. That moment when you get home and attempt to immediately clean out your water bottle but can’t quite seem to find a sponge that will reach the bottom. At this point, you either give up and toss it into the dishwasher or you let it soak in the sink and hope for the best  before rinsing it out. Most other water bottles are a pain to clean by hand, but Be Bottle’s exclusive removable bottom has resolved this problem. With just a few twists, remove the bottom cap and easily clean as needed. The last thing you want to do after a long day at work is fidget with a toilet brush just to clean your bottle.

 4. Insulation keeps your drinks hot or cold

Be Bottles aren’t just for water alone. Save time and take advantage of your commute to work to steep your morning tea, or rest easy knowing your coffee will still be hot by the time you make it to the office. Going on a run at lunch? Your water will stay cold and keep you hydrated while you’re off enjoying the trails. Be Bottle’s double-walled stainless-steel insulation makes it easy for you to enjoy cold beverages for 24 hours and hot beverages for 12 hours.

5. It’s reusable

This benefit goes without saying but it’s still incredibly noteworthy. Be Bottles are reusable, not only saving you money in the long run but also reducing the amount of plastic being used on a daily basis. According to the Huffington Post, only 9 percent of plastic is recycled in the United States, which means that 91 percent is contributing to habitat destruction, a waste in reusable resources, and overfilled landfills. Buying reusable products is one way you can fight back.

3 Reasons Your Guy Is Going to Want This Black Water Bottle for the Gym

 

When it comes to an active lifestyle, we sometimes forget about hydration. We plan to drink our eight glasses of water each day, but when it comes down to it, we fall short. The reason? Most people have yet to find a water bottle they want to carry around all day.

When we leave for work in the morning, our choices are limited in terms of carrying coffee and water, especially for men. Lugging around various items without the flexibility of a handbag may force them to choose between one or the other. In the early hours of the day, coffee is the reigning champion over water. So getting to the gym with water can be a challenge. How do you make sure your guy is staying hydrated at the gym?

Hook him up with Be Bottle’s black water bottle.  It’s so cool, he won’t want to hit the weights without it. Here’s why he’ll love it.

1. Modern look and feel

Be Bottle offers a sleek, matte black finish, making it the perfect addition to the “look good feel good” attitude in the gym. This style is complemented by the durability of the product through its stainless-steel shell and double-wall insulation to keep beverages warm or cold. In just a few seconds, the bottle can change from a coffee mug to a water bottle so that he can leave the office and head to the gym or the outdoors with ease.

Worried about leaks while working out? The Be Bottle is guaranteed leak proof, meaning your man won’t ever have to waste time cleaning up an unnecessary mess from his bottle tipping over (we know their time is precious in the gym). With 18 ounces of fluid available in each bottle, running low on water will be the least of his concerns, giving him more time to focus on his workout and less time refilling at the water fountain. 

The best part about this bottle is that cleaning takes no time at all. With Be Bottle’s ground-breaking twist-off bottom, cleaning no longer requires long soaks. Your man will simply twist off the bottom of the bottle and clean away. This is convenient for those quick switches from coffee to water at the office, when there may only be a few minutes of free time in between meetings.

2. Easily cleaned!

When we created the removable bottom, we did so to ensure that you can drink whatever you wanted without fear of flavor hangover. Your guy won’t ever have to worry about leftover protein powder or pre-workout in his bottle. Give him the ease of mind knowing that his Be Bottle will be the one and only champion he needs to crush a good workout.

3. It’s eco-friendly

In today’s world, plastic is a massive  problem. According to anEnvironmental Protection Agency survey completed in 2014, Americans discarded 33.6 million tons of plastic, but only 9.5 percent of it was recycled. By using reusable drinking bottles such as the Be Bottle, he can take a stance  against plastic pollution and “Be The Change.”

Our Just Black Be Bottle is perfect for the gym, outdoor adventures, and demonstrates a commitment to being environmentally responsible. Don’t just get a bottle for him, if black isn’t your color, check out our other color options! We know you’ll find one you love just for yourself.

Be the Change, End Your Use of Plastic

I have written a few pieces on the Huffington Post ("Plastic, Plastic Literally Everywhere" and "Plastic, It''s What''s for Dinner") about the problem with plastic waste and how it damages the environment and our health.  In fact, the moment I learned about the dangers of plastic pollution, I changed my habits immediately.  

When I recently I learned about Be Bottles and had the opportunity to give one a go, I drank up the chance!  I always try to “Be the Change” I wish to see, and was very excited that a water-bottle company held the same mission:  To eliminate single-use plastic water bottles. 

We all need water for good health, I know, I am a dietitian!  So, when I got my Be Bottle, I was very excited by all the various ways you can use it! 

I love my water fruit-infused, turned into tea, turned into coffee, cold or hot with a bit of lemon, or even just plain, and these are all things you can do with the Be Bottle.

The other great thing was that I could carry my Be Bottle with me everywhere.  It has become an essential part of my everyday life!  I fill it with icy-cold water for my spin classes where it hydrates and refreshes me as I sweat away the day.  I carry it to and from work in my bag, often filled with tea-infused water; the best part is, since I use loose tea leaves, the infuser allows me to flavor my water without chewing on the leaves! 

The Be Bottle has been super helpful in the morning as I walk my dog, since it seals tightly and won’t spill my coffee all over the place.  I hook it onto my son’s stroller (with its nice large handle) with my “mommy hook,” and it keeps my water cool for hours!  It’s so easy and fun to use that even my 3-year old helps me with it!  In fact, when I infuse my water with berries or melon, he often steals several sips, if not all of them! 

The Be Bottle really is an all-purpose bottle. 

When you consider the environment, health benefits, and cost-savings of a one-time purchase that you can use, reuse, and reuse again, it really does make sense to “Be the Change,” and get yourself a Be Bottle.
