Preferred Brands Water Bottles with a Built-in filter for Travelers & Trekkers

When travelling to unfamiliar locations one has to be sure of the purity of the local water. And, in places where you know that cleanliness is not that great, one should avoid the local tap water. Instead, you should get bottled water. Nevertheless, with each bottled water you purchase adds up over a time and increase the cost of your travel. Also, those plastic water bottles are harmful to the environment.

Taking a rough example. Each 2 Litre bottle is about 75 cents (30 INR) and you buy three a day, over the course of a month you will spend $67.50 (2700 INR)! That’s a lot of money spent on the water. (These prices may vary in different parts of the world, bottled water costs a lot more than that!)

Therefore, I would personally recommend you to use a Water Bottle with a Built-in filter. This would reduce the cost of your travel and also not pollute the environment.

    I always carry my own bottle of water as I do not want to add to the plastic waste generated by empty water bottles. Aquaguard bottle sounds nice – maybe I should try it out.
