We love reviewing reusable water bottles because we are so against disposable water bottles consuming our resources and filling up our landfills. We are highlighting the Alex Bottle as an innovative green travel product because it made from 50% recycled materials.
The Alex Bottle is a new stainless steel water bottle that is so popular because of it’s amazing design. We tested it, and we have also heard from people who have tested and the reviews have been incredible. There’s a lot of great reusable water bottle available, and they are easy to find on Amazon. Here’s what we love about this one.
Why we love Alex Bottle
We only consider bottles that are completely BPA-free. We absolutely LOVE when our water bottles are dishwasher safe, which this one from Alex is. Because we use our water bottles every time we leave our home, they get a lot of use. We like being able to sanitize them at the end of each day. And again, this one is made from recycled materials which makes it so much better than its competitors. Even more, this one offers an incredible 2-year warranty. Most water bottle companies only offer a 30-day warranty.

Plus the ALEX Bottle also features a 2 year warranty and there there is no liner (unlike Sigg water bottles and aluminum water bottles). I cannot tell you how many water bottles do not offer anything but a 30 day warranty, so this is an incredible bonus.
You can also put smoothies, sports drinks, and other beverages in the bottle. Because it easily comes apart and fits in the dishwasher the drink will come out much more easily than other bottles.
Where is the Alex Bottle made?
There is still a great search out there for stainless bottles made in the USA. The Alex Bottle doesn’t live up to this challenge. Instead it’s manufactured in Jakarta. Here’s what the folks at ALEX say about why it’s manufactured there:
We did endless amounts of research when trying to pick a factory that met our sustainability standards as well as our high product quality standards. Fortunately for us, we were able to find both with no compromise. Not only do we have strict manufacturing agreements in place to make sure that the factory workers who make ALEX are paid well and treated fairly, we also monitor the factory processes as they relate to the environment. This includes everything from how the paint is applied to our bottles to reusing all of our scrap parts for other products. We personally inspected our factory with a white glove to make sure that they walked the walk.
It seems that the compatibility of the ALEX Bottle will make it the biggest selling point for green travelers looking to pack light.
There are a lot of great water bottles on the market, and finding the best stainless steel water bottle is important. The Alex Bottle is a little harder to find but if you are considering a stainless steel water bottle, it is a great option. Read about a great water bottle for kids too.
