S'well - Stainless Steel Bottle Review and Giveaway


I have a campsite that me, my husband, and our children stay at on weekends for seven months out of the year.  With it comes the task of buying food and drinks to pack up there.  Once in a great while I will buy bottled beverages but, for the most part, I prefer that we drink out of reusable bottles and cups.  By doing so, it helps eliminate trash and waste.  It also helps keep costs down.

We use various brands and designs of resuable water bottles, some better than others.  The stainless steel bottle from S'well is one of our preferred to use.


With seven available colors, S'well bottles are made of high-quality stainless steel.  They hold 17 ounces of beverage, keeping your drink hot or cold all day.  They are non-leaching, toxin-free, and virtually unbreakable.  The shape of the S'well bottle has been designed to fit ergonomically into your hand, bag, or car cup holder.  The size of the opening is large enough to add ice cubes but small enough to drink from without spills.  For every S'well bottle sold, ten percent of the proceeds are donated to WaterAid, an organization that works to deliver water solutions to the world's poorest communities.




I received the ocean blue S'well bottle to evaluate.  Now a part of our camper household items, this stainless steel bottle is premium in its design.  I rarely use ice cubes in any of my drinks and I don't usually have hot beverages on warm days, but my S'well bottle has been perfect for keeping my tap water and tea cold for a long period of time.  I really like that my S'well bottle fits nicely in the cup holder of my golf cart.  The opening is the right size and the lid stays in place when it's on.  I'd take an interest in having a clip or latch on it, though, so the kids could attach it to their pockets or pants loops when they're out and about.




Win It!

One person will win a S'well bottle in choice of color.

I learned, that an estimated 50 billion plastic bottles of water are consumed each year in the US and over 200 billion bottles globally – not for purity sake, but for convenience and portability. Even in this era of conservation of resources, less than 20% of these plastic, disposable water bottles are recycled.
