Raise your hand if you struggle to drink enough water throughout the day. If your hand is in the air, well, join the club! I’ve been trying to up my hydration game for the past few months, but as a busy college student with a part-time job, it’s simply annoying to lug a huge water bottle as I dash from one corner of the campus to the other. Luckily, the folks at Stojo totally get it, because their water bottles are perfect for anyone (aka me!) who wants to stay hydrated while on the go. Trust me: the Collapsible Bottle is a must-have for those with a more active lifestyle.

For those unfamiliar with Stojo, it’s a sustainable brand that designs incredibly clever, stylish, and affordable collapsible and reusable drinkware and food containers. As for Stojo’s sports bottle, I have been using it for almost two months now, and it’s a total game-changer.

For starters, the 20-oz. collapsible bottle is priced at just $20 and comes in 12 yummy color options. And aside from the fact that it’s so affordable and stylish, what truly makes this water bottle unique is the clever design. You simply put one hand on top of the lid and the other on the bottom of the bottle, squeeze, and voila, it collapses into a tiny disc. Which means that rather than make room for a heavy steel water bottle in my bag that’s already bursting with books and a clunky laptop, I simply loop Stojo’s bottle around my purse strap for hands-free carrying. Once I get to my final destination, I fill it with fresh water. It’s an easy solution that doesn’t weigh me down and has even been saving me so much money on single-use plastic water bottles.

The clever design also extends to the water bottle’s lid. Personally, I’ve been using the sports bottle cap that’s available on Stojo’s website, but the screw-on lid that comes with this bottle works just as well and boasts the same airtight, leak-proof storage. And since it’s made from BPA-free, lead-free, and phthalate-free food-grade silicone, I can easily fill it with ice-cold water or even a piping hot beverage without worrying about anything icky or unsafe getting into my drinks. Back at home, I just remove the cap and toss the water bottle in my dishwasher, and it’s ready to be looped around my bag for another hectic day on campus.

Now that classes are finally over, I can’t wait to take my Stojo water bottle on hikes, to the gym, and even on road trips. I’ll never have to worry about lugging a heavy water bottle while staying on top of my daily hydration goals. The only hitch? Stojo’s products are super popular, so if (like me) you’re planning on getting out and making the most of summer, you’ll want to get your bottle STAT. And when you buy it as part of the “Buy $10, Get $10” deal, you’re not just saving money — you’re supporting small businesses and sustainable brands. And we can all raise a collapsible bottle to that!
