I have been a sportster/athlete most of my life, enjoying tennis, running, karate, basketball, etc. When I was younger, I did a poor job of drinking enough water to stay hydrated. Horribly so, but youth allowed me to power thru 99% of the time. As I have gotten older, I do a much better job… Read More

I've got a water bottle I've carried for about 5 years. I don't think I've biked anywhere without it since I bought my current bike. It's steel, has one of those pull-up spouts, and sweats worse than I do in our Southern humidity. So when the opportunity to test the AVEX thermal water bottle with… Read More

My dog, Teddy, seems to shed year round.  That means those darn dog hairs get everywhere, even in his water bowl.  He won't drink water with hair in it, and it's a pain trying to make sure his water meets his standards so he'll drink enough during the day.  And that's with me here with… Read More

I love tea. Hot tea and iced teas are what I drink 99% of the time. When I'm home and at work, I drink from ceramic or glass mugs, neither of which are convenient to use when I need to be mobile like walking to and from meetings, etc. The MIU COLOR glass water bottle… Read More

Juice boxes are convenient for packing in a child's lunch or for taking along on trips, but what they contain probably isn't your first pick for feeding to your child.  Those juice boxes often contain beverages that are more sugar than anything else, so they aren't nutritious.  Those flimsy cardboard boxes that can seem like… Read More
