Globally, we now cycle through a million plastic bottles a minute—only about 9 percent of which are recycled. Single-use bottles are harmful to the environment, and we can do better. With all the beautiful reusable water bottles on the market these days, there really is no excuse to drink out of a plastic one. Make the eco-friendly choice and go with one of these mission-driven reusable bottle companies.


By now, many people have heard whisperings of S'well's minimalist, sleek design and almost magical ability to keep drinks piping hot and ice cold, but did you know the bottle also has a philanthropic component? With annual revenue topping $100 million, the popular company calls UNICEF, American Forests, and the Breast Cancer Research Foundation partners and has donated $800,000 since 2015. In 2018, S'well's sights are set on bringing clean water to rural villages in Madagascar.
