In the summer, hydration goals are super important even if you stay indoors; especially so if you are in an AC environment as air-conditioning dehydrates the body. And there's nothing better to keep you motivated than a stylish personal water bottle that helps you stay on track even without fancy LED reminders or 'smart' bottles that connect to your phone, simple because you have to keep filling it.
Lounge curates a list of water bottles made of safe and sustainable materials that will make it easier for you to remember to hydrate.
