The Ion8 Leakproof Water Bottle I didn't know I needed!

Ion8 water bottle

Every parent is fully aware it is back to school time and we've all been getting our kids kitted out with all the things they lost or had stolen before term finished back in March. If my twin teens had their way they would have everything new, every time a new terms starts but, of course, that would be super expensive and not very eco either, so I put my foot down and with some things that are still in good condition they have to make do.

This new term has been an expensive one as they had both grown out of their blazers, one needed new school skirts and the other shoes. Add on PE kit, some stationery, calculators and face masks and I'm a few hundred pounds down. I was therefore super pleased when Ion8 offered to send me a couple of water bottles for the girls, as they didn't really need any but I knew they'd like them.

Naughty mummy that I am though, I haven't given the girls the bottles as theirs were fine and I have fallen in love with the pastel-coloured leakproof water bottles that were sent to us. So I now have one for taking out in my handbag and when I'm walking and one beside my bed for in the night when I need a drink.

I've often seen Ion8 bottles and they've always looked stylish and we already have a Friends of the Earth steel water bottle so I know they are good quality and last well too. I genuinely had no idea I'd like these ones sent to us so much. Looking on the website they are sold as a child's bottle, but I really like them for me and here are 9 reasons why

  1. At 350ml they are the perfect size to carry with you, without being too heavy or cumbersome. 
  2. There is a lock to keep the kid closed and make them leakproof
  3. You can open the lid with one hand and it is super easy
  4. The opaque bottle with white lid looks so stylish
  5. Easy to drink out of, as there is a vented smooth liquid flow
  6. Made from BPA free, phthalate-free, non-toxic TRITAN
  7. It's just the right width for my cup holder in my car
  8. It's odour resist
  9. It can be used for hot or cold liquids (-10 c to 96c)
I think you can tell I'm a bit taken with my new Ion8 bottles and I've been using them every day since they arrived with us. They retail for £11.99 and for a sturdy bottle that will last a long time I think that is OK. I was able to find various Ion8 bottle of this size and shape on Amazon with prices from as low as £8.99, so have a good shop around.
