The Best Water Bottle for Teachers


As teachers we need to stay hydrated during the day to keep our voices good and our energy levels high. I have been struggling to replace my aging plastic water bottle with something that is BPA free and easy to clean. I have purchased a few different kinds of steal and glass bottles, but this mason jar is the best. 
Why do I love a large mason jar?
  1. Easy to wash - my hand fits inside of it. 
  2. It is 100% dishwasher safe - no more germs lurking in odd shaped corners.
  3. It has a wide mouth so I can carry soup, smoothies or any type of drink.
  4. I can buy several in pack for a few dollars versus $20 for one bottle.
  5. I can recycle it if it breaks, chips or looks nasty.
  6. The measurement labels tell me exactly how much water I am drinking. 
Do you have any mason jars laying around your kitchen? Why not try it for a day? Let me know how it goes in the comments below.

  1. And if you are industrious, you can add a straw through the lid too!

  2. This is such a great idea! You could even pretty it up with your Cameo or Cricut (neither of which I have, but I've seen how other teachers use them to label and freshen up things). I'm gonna try this tomorrow to keep track of how much I drink during the day!

  4. A friend recently pinned these the other day, and they look awesome. They are green drinking caps that fit right onto mason jars. You can get a spout, or one with a hole for a straw! Check it out...
