How Cool are S’well Bottles?

swellThe coolest! Thanks to Red Siren boutique located inside the Harbor Center, we have started selling every size S’well bottle at Long + Lean Elmwood!

S’well bottles are made of the highest grade stainless steel built to keep your cold drink cold for 24 hours and hot drink hot for 12 hours. The bottle tops are big enough to fit ice cubs in, with the bottom a perfect fit for a standard cup holder. The cap traps the ice or steam and prevents any possible leakage.

We all drink water in different ways, at various times throughout the day. S’well adapts to that habit with their 3 sizes: 9oz, 17oz, and 25oz. every size has the same structure; same bottom/top size.

Having the luxury to drink clean water is something we take for granted. S’well is a proud supporter of the U.S Fund for UNICEF. They donate 100,000 dollars to help provide clean water in more than 100 countries worldwide. Working to improve sanitation facilities and creating better access to safe and clean water. With just one UNICEF dollar a child can drink safe clean water for 40 days.

S’well bottles do need to be cared for a little differently. They are dishwasher safe, however the dishwasher can cause the paint to chip and the vacuum seal to become ineffective. A quick rinse with hot water and soap will easily sanitize and maintain the insulation of the bottle. It is recommended to store your bottle with the top off to let the bottle breath. When cared for properly the bottle will last for years!

So, not sold yet? Check out all of the various; vibrant colors and designs next time you’re in the studio! These are a must have for any workout!
