8 Benefits of Stainless Steel Water Bottles

How can you ensure your drink stays cold for a long period of time without the need to add ice to it? There is no magic here. The answer is simple: Stainless steel water bottles!

We’ve made a list of the top benefits of stainless steel water bottles. Check out the list below.

1. Stainless steel is sustainable and eco-friendly

Unlike plastic, stainless steel is made out of natural elements. Stainless steel bottles can easily be recycled. Plastic bottles can be recycled as well, but it is much less eco-friendly to recycle plastic and it requires more time in order to recycle it.

2. It keeps your drink cold and hot

Who likes to drink lukewarm water on a hot, sunny day? No-one. This only happens when you drink water from a plastic bottle. Luckly, you can use a stainless steel water bottle, that keep your drink cold for hours and hours. The insulating properties in stainless steel water bottles mean that you don’t have to worry about the temperature of your water: Just fill it up with cold water and drink cold water for the next 24 hours! You can also pour hot water into your bottle. The bottle can keep your drink warm up to six hours.

3. They are more durable

Your bottle will be much more durable than the classic plastic bottle. Plastic bottles tend to break easily. On a really hot day, a plastic bottle could even melt. A good non-plastic bottle can last for years.

4. Your water will taste of water

Do you know that feeling? When you drink water from your plastic bottle, and it doesn’t really taste of water? You needn’t to worry anymore. In a stainless steel bottle, water tastes just as water should taste like: water!

5. No harmful chemicals

Gone are the days where you have to worry about whether your bottle contains BPA or BPS. With a stainless steel bottle, you can rest assured that no harmful chemicals are included. While it is true that many new plastic bottles no longer contain the harmful ingredient BPA, a lot of the newer plastic bottles contain another bad ingredient, which is BPS.

6. Say goodbye to mould

Have you ever looked inside your plastic bottle and either seen or felt something not so pleasant? Yep, that is mold. Plastic water bottles are extremely good at accumulating mold. Fortunately, stainless steel water bottles are much anti-mold-friendly.

7. Saves you money and water

Do you know what you can save a lot of money, and moreso, water, by drinking from a reusable water bottle? Research has found that bottled water is extremely expensive and a big turn-off for the environment.

8. Energy and climate friendly

Stainless steel water bottles are some of the most eco-friendly bottles you can get. They are good for the environment and the climate.

How long can stainless steel water bottles last?

Thanks to its natural elements, stainless steel has a long lifespan. In fact, a good stainless steel bottle can last up to 12 years.

What is the best stainless steel water bottle to buy?

There are many stainless steel water bottles out there. Some are great, others, not so great. Known for its exceptional performance and durability, the MILLYSTAR insulated stainless steel water bottle makes it for the perfect choice.

When Activewear Merges Into Daily Wear

From gym to everyday life

Scrolling back to 5 years ago, it’s a strange to think that activewear was something you would buy like if you went to the dentist: A necessity but not necessarily a pleasant thing to do.

Your options were pretty limited: Some sort of baggy leggings, ugly colours and not many clothing shops had activewear displayed yet. Usually, you would have to go to a sport shop specifically.

2018 is all about athleisure

Fast-forward to 2018 and active wear is your number one thing to buy when you jump onto your smartphone to do some online shopping.

You find performancewear everywhere now. Be it at ASOS, Target or H&M, activewear has it’s own department.

Today it’s all about athleisure and activewear that are combined into one thing. This is THE fashion.

Just have a look at your wardrobe. How many different types of leggings do you have? Some with stripes, some with multicolours and some that are just minimalistic. Every day you have a new par to wear, for every occasion. Not bad hey?

MILLYSTAR combines active wear with daily wear

MILLYSTAR activewear brings you the ultimate athleisure activewear package. Packed with sporty and funky features, you are sure to be on top of fashion when you wear MILLYSTAR.

In fact, there is a bit of everything in the MILLYSTAR clothes: Fitness, fashion, football and funkiness!

Expect 2018 to be even more of an athleisure year

Just have a look on instagram at the big stars as Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid. They know how to mix that athleisure style together with their daily activities.

Whether you work out as an avid athlete, or simply “work out” at the coffee bar with your best pals, activewear as everydaywear for women of all ages is becoming the ultimate fashion trend.

How great is it to wear comfy clothes on you way to a party, work or just to the local shops?

How to top the ultimate atheisure outfit

There’s no real formula on how to do this. You can however, use your good fashion sense, some common sense and a bit of creativity. Here are a couple tips:

  1. Keep it simple

If you are not totally convinced on your outfit, just keep it simple. Wear minimalistic active wear with matte colours such as plain blue. Remember, less is more.

  1. Accessories are your friends

 You don’t need to wear bling-bling earrings and cat-eyed sunnies. But do wear some minimalist sunglasses or a sweater tied around your waist. It doesn’t take much to change your look from gym bum to stylish chic. Therefore don’t exaggerate, but do choose some minimal accessories to make it edgy.
