Living Green With Jerinda: Back-to-School With the CamelBak eddy BPA-Free Reusable Water Bottles

Thank you to CamelBak for providing complimentary product samples for us to base this review upon. All opinions expressed are my own.

Being an eco-friendly person, I love reusable water bottles either made of glass, stainless steel, or BPA-free plastic. Regular, disposable plastic water bottles are a huge source of pollution so we try to avoid them as much as possible. CamelBak has just release their redesigned eddy bottle which features a faster flow rate and is more durable than its predecessor. It comes in a .6L, 1L, or a .75L bottle, which is the size we received, with their patented flip-top bite valve that allows you to drink without tipping or spilling. Plus, its loop handle can be hooked to a carabiner or easily held with just a finger.

We love our stainless steel water bottles, but have been looking for something more lightweight and easier to carry when we’re out running errands, working out at the gym, hiking, or walking as a family, and the CamelBak eddy is a perfect fit for our needs. This bottle is very light - even full of ice and water - and the loop-top is really easy to carry and is ergonomic so it doesn’t leave harsh impressions on my finger. We very much love these bottles and always carry them with us everywhere we go. This also helps us all get in our daily recommended water intake, and that’s an added bonus. We all love drinking out of them and will be purchasing two more soon so we can each have our own and not have to share. The CamelBak eddy is also dishwasher safe.

My only critique would be that I really wish these bottles were insulated because they sweat quite a bit and leave wetness from the condensation everywhere. When we purchase additional bottles, we will be opting for the insulated CamelBak eddy.

You can purchase the .75L CamelBak eddy at for approximately $15.00 and the .6L Insulated eddy for about $20.00.
