One of my resolutions for 2011 is to deal with my physique higher, and an necessary a part of that’s consuming extra water. I drink water daily and subsequently all the time have a reusable water bottle of some type in tow. The latest addition to my lineup is the ALEX water bottle, which I was despatched in mid-December to check out. I knew if Long Tran from Yanko appreciated it, I in all probability would too.
ALEX stands for “Always Live Extraordinarily,” which I don’t assume I do. My life is fairly boring, however that doesn’t imply that I can’t begin now, proper? ALEX launched final August by former Oakley Marketing Manager, Chris Hotell, his Mom, Marta Hotell, and his Olympic Snowboarder spouse, Gretchen Bleiler. You gotta love household companies.
ALEX is a BPA-free chrome steel water bottle however what makes it totally different from different reusable water bottles is that it’s modular. ALEX has each a screw-prime and a screw-backside — making it simpler to wash and journey with. The modularity additionally lets you have enjoyable with it by combine-and-matching with different elements, which you should purchase individually from ALEX’s web site. It’s dishwasher pleasant, the strap is constructed from recycled plastic water bottles, and it’s manufactured from BPA-free 50% recycled, one hundred% recyclable. It’s additionally coated in eco-pleasant powder paint.
I spent a number of time with my ALEX — it frolicked with me whereas I blogged, went to the health club, I introduced it with me within the automotive to run errands, and to yoga. Overall, I actually prefer it. It’s tremendous straightforward to wash, which might be my favourite facet. So lengthy as you tightly shut the underside and prime items, there’s no leakage. One factor I assume can be nice is to make an ALEX cosy, as a result of boy, does that chrome steel get chilly — typically colder than the water inside! Overall, I actually just like the design and performance of ALEX, plus it’s enjoyable. In my guide, that may be a profitable design trifecta.
Edit: Someone requested me if the water tasted metallic-ish. It definitely has a special style than my non-metallic water bottles, however the style is not any totally different than some other metallic water bottle that I have used.
