Staying hydrated is so important, but we want to caution you about keeping packs of plastic water bottles in your car all summer. A recent study found 93% of all bottled water contains dissolved microplastics. The intense heat in the trunk of your car warms the plastic bottles, which causes even more plastic to dissolve into the water. These molecules have a wide array of unpleasant health effects, including disrupting your hormonal system. Do you and your family a huge favor, and fill up your Hydro Flasks or Life Factory bottles with nice cold water before you head out. It might not be as convenient, but health issues are even less convenient!
