Raise your hand if you buy reusable water bottles to lessen your usage of plastic. *Me, too* Ok, also raise your hand if you notice that sometimes those water bottles get a stench to them that you can’t rid of no matter how much you clean ‘em. *Ok, same* I’m about to rock your world, everyone. Meet LARQ: the self-cleaning water bottle that purifies the water you put in it. *mind blown*
I took it around the city with me when I was shooting with my photographer, Melissa. We typically shoot 5-6 outfits in an hour and I always bring water with me so I thought I’d bring along the LARQ. You can fill it from any water source and it will purify it to tasty perfection and keep it cool for 24 hours. Both those traits are super appealing to me as I’ve tried to cut down on plastic in a big way and have adopted reusable water bottles. They really do get smelly–have you noticed that? The self-cleaning feature of LARQ is really awesome (the USB port is waterproof, too) AND the fact it purifies the water is incredible–and I swear, I can taste the difference (I’m not a fan of how Chicago tap water tastes…). You’re going to see this LARQ Bottle a lot in gift guides a lot because it’s a pretty cool gift. The price point is $95, but when you think about how you won’t have to buy a new one in a year (I’ve spent $50 on a bottle and all it does it keep it cool…and it also started smelling after a few months), it’s a pretty great cost per use–ESPECIALLY when you use it every day!
