Reusable water bottles

Feeling guilty about drinking H20 from a disposable plastic bottle? There are more permanent alternatives.

SIGG water bottles
These aluminum bottles from Swiss company SIGG “come in many colorful designs.” The water tastes fresh, but the metal shell turns awfully cold.

Platy Bottle
Though it “bears a disconcerting resemblance to a colostomy bag,” this collapsible bottle, intended for hikers, proves portable and easy to store.
Price: $7.95

New Wave Enviro
This stainless-steel bottle keeps water cool overnight and its plastic cap “somehow solved the whole metallictaste problem.” It’s shaped just right for a car’s cupholders.
Price: $13.95.

Nalgene N-Gen
“This bottle is lightweight but wide and feels more like a sports bottle or Thermos” than something to sip from at the office.
Price: $10.25

Stanley Canteen
These “canteens are narrow, making them easy to slide into bags.” Their hard, durable body is made from polycarbonate plastic (be aware that some consumer advocates suspect it may release harmful chemicals).
Price: $12
