Summer here in Houston is always a scorcher, so whenever my family travels anywhere, I tend to have a bottle full of water in tow too. I love how healthy and great tasting filtered water is on a hot summer's day, but what happens when that one bottle you filled up before you left the house runs out?
Most of the time, you must then resort to either purchasing a bottle of water, which is bad for the environment as well as your pocketbook, or go without, which isn't healthy. Thankfully, CamelBak has solved this problem by allowing you to enjoy freshly filtered water absolutely anywhere with the Groove Reusable Filtered Water Bottle. I had the opportunity to review this summer essential with my family. Keep reading to learn more!
CamelBak Groove is a BPA-Free water bottle which promises to change the way you drink water while on the go. It has the unique ability to filter tap water into great-tasting water as you sip away. Each CamelBak Groove holds 20 ounces of ordinary tap water, which can be obtained from convenient places such as water fountains and bathroom sinks, and converts it into fresh, healthy water whenever you're ready to drink.
Simply rinse the Fresh Filter under water before using and pop it into the central cartridge of the CamelBak Groove. The plant-based Fresh Filter has been independently tested to reduce chlorine, taste and odor of regular tap water for up to 3 months! One of my favorite features is the spill proof bite valve, which opens wide with just a pinch of your teeth, and then seals back again automatically.
In a recent study, people were discovered to drink up to 24% more water with a CamelBak bottle than with other reusable and disposable bottles. Now that's a big improvement and one that can lead to better overall health. Unlike stainless steel water bottles, the CamelBak Groove is completely dishwasher safe too. So once you've been out all day having a blast in the summer sun, you can just toss this water bottle into the dishwasher and forget about it. No hand-washing and scrubbing this one!
Finally, the CamelBak is an eco-friendly alternative to buying those disposable bottles of drinking water which are filling our landfills at an alarming rate. A CamelBak water bottle has been proven to replace up to 375 disposable bottles. There are also a wide variety of accessories for your Groove water bottle, such as handy backpacks and additional bite valves, so that every member of the family can have their own. Personally, I would love the 2011 Annadel women's cross-training pack. This pack even has it's own PureFlow tube!
If you are constantly on the go, whether soaking up the summer sun or just running errands around the office, the CamelBak Groove could be just what you need to increase your water intake. Now with the CamelBak Groove, fresh tasting, filtered water is always within your reach and just a bite away. So, what are you waiting for? Get your Groove on!
