Hydro Flask water bottles have become known as “the best water bottles in the world” since the company started in 2009. The company’s motto and leading initiatives is to save the world from lukewarm water, and they have done just that. Their water bottles can keep liquids hot for at least 12 hours and cold for even longer. I can personally attest to putting ice in my Hydro Flask and it still being there up to 24 hours later. The company also boasts themselves as being “green” as they are cutting down on the number of plastic water bottles used and donating a share of their profits to green initiatives. However, their production is not the most environmentally friendly process. Click here to view my story map.
