I’m not running up and down the court for 48 minutes, but doing errands and chasing my three kids around certainly works up a thirst. My insane collection of water bottles run the gamut from Lululemon to Nike to S’well. They are all BPA free, glass or metal, attractive, and easy to use. However, they aren’t my Brita, and certainly not a Raptors Limited Edition. Not only am I supporting my beloved team, but I am doing my part in making a positive contribution to the environment. I’m also making a conscious effort of drinking several bottles of water a day in order to stay healthy. Right now, I’m just dealing with my kids’ germs and the kids at the library or playdates. Once I’m back at work, you know I will have all sets of germs flying at me from every which way and water is my best defence.
Speaking of defence, did you see Game 5 on Tuesday night? My Raptors didn’t have the best first three quarters, but their fourth quarter comeback is enough to make anyone a Raptors fan. At most, we were down by 17 and we won by 3! “We the Fourth”, anyone?
If you are still not convinced that sporting a Raptors logo is for you, Brita has released several different colours to choose from such as rose, blue, or light blue with a floral pattern. Each 700mL hard-sided bottle comes with a replaceable water filter and each filter can replace up to 300 plastic water bottles. It is BPA free and dishwasher safe. It is NSF certified to reduce chlorine (taste and odour) and particulate.
Brita bottles (Raptors Limited Edition and others) are available at local retailers such as Canadian Tire, Costco, Loblaws, Target, and Walmart. MSRP $19.99. Filters are $7.99 MSRP.
