Freak accidents aside, this water bottle is everything. The squishy but stylish neoprene sleeve keeps your glass bottle protected while the liter size ensures your daily water consumption is in check.

(I take full responsibility for helping my mom kick her Ziploc habit by getting her their set of Porter Bags.) The colors are fun while still feeling decidedly neutral, and the design of every product is considered and smart. Case in point, this bottle that’s made for stylish, easy sippin’. Its simple and understated while managing to also be decidedly chic. If kicking your plastic bottle habit is long overdue, make it happen with this sustainable choice.
