Well, it’s the first week of January, and people everywhere are shutting the door on 2011, and making resolutions left and right. Since weight loss and healthy living are among the top resolutions each year, it is one of the busiest times for gyms and workout studios. Time to shed that holiday weight and start working on that beach body once again! Hopefully you don’t have any more cookies leftover from Christmas, and you can buckle down with your workout plan temptation free!
BPA-Free Bamboo Bottle
As you move away from the landfill-destined disposable bottles and their reusable plastic friends, it’s difficult to find a water bottle to suit your lean and green lifestyle. Even the BPA-free metal canisters leave a bit of a metallic taste in your mouth, which doesn’t inspire sticking to 8 full glasses a day! You’re in luck; you can drink your water and enjoy it too with this gorgeous bamboo bottle from Bamboo Bottle Company. We love the eco-friendly removable glass interior because you can pop it in the dishwasher for easy cleaning, and the sustainably produced bamboo shell is a great addition to your eco-friendly bamboo gear.
