  • Bring Your Define Bottle To Your Memorial Day Picnic

    Memorial Day, which was established shortly after the end of the Civil War to honor fallen soldiers and originally known as Decoration Day, is an important federal holiday in the United States. While Memorial Day is primarily a day of remembrance, the holiday is also an important time for families to gather together. With most working Americans afforded a three day weekend, Memorial Day is currently a popular time for family reunions, including barbeques and picnics. At Define Bottle, we want to make sure you have an excellent holiday that honors the American soldiers who have protected our country as well as a successful family picnic. Check out these tips we have for celebrating Memorial Day this year.

    Pack A Large Blanket. Whether you are celebrating Memorial Day in the local park, at the beach, or at the pool, a large blanket gives you and your family a place to sit and stash belongings. This is especially helpful for community events where seating space is limited.

    Bring Food To Share. A holiday picnic without food isn’t a holiday picnic at all. Potlucks and barbeques are popular events for Memorial Day, so break out your best recipes and bring enough to share. Not only will you get to show off your finest dishes, there’s a good chance you’ll be digging into deliciousness from others as well.

    Stock Your Cooler. The Memorial Day holiday is observed on the last Monday in the month of May which means summer is right around the corner. Be sure to stay hydrated throughout your family’s Memorial Day celebration by stocking your cooler with plenty of beverages. And don’t forget to fill your Define Bottle for a refreshing fruit flavored beverage.

    From all of us here at Define Bottle, we hope you have a safe and happy Memorial Day weekend with your family and community.
  • Perfect For Summer Camps

    With summer in full swing, kids across the United States are heading off to camp. Summer camp is certainly an amazing opportunity for children to make new friends, learn new skills, and expand their interests into new hobbies. However, summer camp is also a time many children leave their parents behind for an extended period for the first time, and this can be difficult for them for many reasons. Not only do they no longer have their parents watchful gaze helping them succeed, they also are forced to make choices in front of their peers. While many children are familiar with making beverage choices in the cafeteria at lunch, most schools no longer allow sugary soft drinks. Summer camps, though, are not always held to the same standards as schools, and this means sugary drinks are likely to be abundant.

    Infused Water Bottles For Camp

    One way to help your child make better choices during their summer camp adventure is to send them off with a Define Bottle. Not only will the infused water bottles provide them with a delicious beverage alternative to soft drinks, it will also stand as a reminder of you during their time at camp. Define bottles are also incredibly easy to use and clean, even for a child. In fact, the entire concept of the Define Bottle was created by 14 year-old Carter Kostler which means every teenager is capable of using and cleaning a Define water bottle. Order your child a Define Bottle today just in time for summer camp!
  • Do Your Part To End Bottled Water

    Water is the most precious resource we have on planet Earth because it is the basis for life, yet the amount of clean drinking water available is quickly diminishing due to pollution and the evolving climate that is leaving some places, like California, suffering from seemingly unending droughts. However, even if you do not live in a place that is experiencing a drought, you could be contributing to the difficulties the local residents are encountering if you drink bottled water.

    Water Bottles Over Bottled Water

    While the water use of Californians has been under restrictions ordered by the governor, major companies such as Nestle are still bottling water in the state. However, California is not the only place in the world facing this problem. In fact, just about any place that has a bottled water plant is shipping their water bottles elsewhere, removing a valuable resource from their local residents. Although this may not seem like a giant problem in the United States, it is extremely disconcerting to see this practice happen in countries with limited resources and limited access to clean water.

    Define Water Bottles Can Save Money and the Environment

    Packaged bottle water is simply a bad idea all around. Not only does it create an immense amount of trash, it also removes clean water from areas that need it. While the fruit infused water bottles Carter envisioned at age 14 were intended to combat obesity, Define Bottles can also help save the planet. Instead of purchasing bottled water, simply fill up a Define Bottle with water from your faucet. Not only will it preserve natural resources in areas that desperately need them, ordering a Define Bottle is more affordable than buying case after case of expensive bottled water.
  • What You Should Know About Define Water Bottles And The Environment

    We all know that hydration is important.

    Trying to get through your day with a dehydrated body is like trying to take a 500 mile road trip with a couple ounces of gas in your tank: you’re probably going to  break down at some point, and might even do permanent damage to your car.

    The same thing goes for your body. That’s why we’re so passionate about getting Define water bottles into the hands of as many people as possible.

    Our infused water bottles make it easy to stay hydrated by drinking delicious fruit-infused beverages!

    However, many people reach for the disposable bottles of water that are sold for a dollar a pop at the grocery store. Sure, at face value, it might seem cheaper than a Define water bottle, but that’s because you’re not factoring in the environmental cost.

    Here are some shocking facts about what our disposable bottled water habit is doing to the planet, courtesy of TheWorldCounts.com.

    Most bottled water isn’t any cleaner than what comes out of your tap.

    “There are a few brands whose water really comes from springs and mountain streams, but most are just tap water that’s been purified,” reports TheWorldCounts. Which means you’re paying for something that can be obtained for pennies in your kitchen and then creating plastic waste that will likely end up in the landfill.

    Three liters of water is used to package one bottle of water.

    That’s right, in order to create the plastic bottle that houses this water, and will most likely not be recycled, three liters of otherwise drinkable water is removed from the planet.

    Plastic water bottles are petroleum based.

    In the U.S alone, it takes 1.5 million barrels of oil to meet the demands. Burning this oil creates oil, water, and air pollution that contributes to climate change and makes people sick.

    In light of these and other painful realities about the wastefulness of bottled water, we encourage everyone we meet to invest in high-quality, reusable Define water bottles. It will pay for itself over and over again, and you’ll rest easier knowing that you’re doing a small kindness for Mother Earth.
  • Should Your Define Water Bottle Be Ice Cold Or Room Temperature?

    Water is the most refreshing beverage we can give our bodies. After all, more than half of the human body is made up of the stuff! We must hydrate constantly to keep our cells and organs operating in peak condition.

    However, there’s a lot of conflicting information swirling around about how water should be consumed. Should it be plain or have lemon in it? Should it be out of a disposable plastic bottle or something reusable, like a Define water bottle? And lastly, should it be hot, room temperature, or ice cold?

    Conflicting Information About Optimal Water Temperature

    In 2015, an article in NY Mag about a Victoria’s Secret model caught the public’s eye. Models are known for having incredibly fit bodies, and this particular one claimed that the secret to her physical appearance was her early morning beverage. The model said that an Ayurveda specialist told her that warm water is more easily absorbed by your body than cold water and is gentler on your stomach.

    But then you’ll find lots of articles that say if you’re concerned with weight loss, you should drink cold water. The theory is water that’s below our body’s normal temperature causes the body to “work” harder in order to warm it up. Any time the body’s “working,” it’s burning calories. However, it’s also thought that ice cold water can be shocking to the stomach and digestive system.

    So should you put ice in your Define water bottle or not?

    The answer is: it depends.

    If you have gastrointestinal issues, or simply want a healthy way to ease your body out of sleep mode in the morning, lukewarm to hot water with lemon is probably best.

    However, if you’re looking for a beverage that will boost your metabolism and help keep you hydrated throughout the day, attach the freezable base, throw your favorite fruit into your Define water bottle, and be on your way!
