A reusable copper water bottle is not just a pretty alternative to single use plastic water bottles, it also has numerous health related benefits.
Do you buy single use plastic water bottles? Do you know that single use plastic bottles actually leaks harmful chemicals into the water that you drink? And did you know that so much single use plastic ends up in the ocean every year, that it is estimated that by 2050, there will be more plastic than fish in the ocean? This will be our future reality, unless we take immediate action! One way is by switch to reusables. Maybe start with a reusable water bottle. Have a look here for more reusable ideas.
Why use a copper water bottle
Recently the ladies at work gifted me this amazing Coppa Wellness copper water bottle as a thank you, for making them each a terrarium in a glass container they gave me. Copper is my favourite metal and this bottle is much more than just pretty to look at!
This bottle is made from a single sheet of copper and the inside of the bottle will naturally patina over time while the outside has been lacquered. There is no plastic and the bottle cap has a silicon washer to prevent the bottle from leaking. The great thing about using a copper bottle is that the copper ions dissolve in the water and can destroy bacteria, fungi and viruses.
Drinking from a copper bottle means the water is loaded with antioxidants and is anti-inflammatory. And the copper aids in iron absorption, alkalises the water and balances the PH levels in your body. All you have to do is to simply leave water to stand in the bottle for 6-8 hours in order to enjoy the many health benefits.
