Drink Up! Hydrate with the Groove™

I will state the obvious: It is HOT.

Although I am not a medical professional, I’m going to give you some sound advice that should lessen your chance of heat stroke: Stay hydrated.

Water is my preferred beverage of choice even on days when it’s not sizzling outside, so I’ve never had much trouble taking in the recommended 64 oz a day. Unfortunately, for years a good bit of what I was taking in came in the form of bottled water. No more. In an effort to become less wasteful and more environmentally friendly, I’ve been trying as best I can to cut bottled water out of my life.  At home and at work it’s easy to drink out of a glass, but when mobile, on the go and working out, the perfect hydration vessel had eluded me.

That was, until the fine folks at CamelBak offered to let me try out their new Groove™ no-spill water bottle with a built in filter.

Since the day it arrived over a month ago, I’ve been carrying my Groove™ with me wherever I go. There are several reasons I love it:

  • It’s 100% BPA-Free
  • It’s easy to refill and easy to use because of it’s built-in filter
  • It’s durable and easy to carry
  • The Flip & Sip bite valve ensures no spills
  • It’s dishwasher safe
  • And here’s one you won’t read in their sales materials: It’s great for hangovers. The design allows for drinking without ever having to lift your head off the pillow. (I may or may not have learned this from personal experience)

As is always the case when I get a free product sample, I only share with you if it’s something I feel strongly about, and this is one of those things.

So where do you get it?

You may have noticed that I’ve added an Amazon store to my blog! See it over in the right side bar? This is where you can find products that I personally use and love, including the Groove™. So if you want to buy one all you have to do is click on my store and you’ll find it in the kitchen and dining section.

Or maybe you’d like to win it?

That’s right, I’m giving one away this week!
