The bodytek Bottle
At bodytek, even our bottles have to abide by our sustainable principles.
For gyms (and therefore the rest of the planet), plastic is a huge issue.
Whether it’s the throwaway plastic cups that gyms provide to their members, the water bottles they sell in the vending machines or the encouragement of members to bring their own drinks in plastic bottles, there is an inevitability that plastic finds its way into the chain.
As per our hashtag, we’re being the change. Let us tell you how…
A good drinks bottle is much more than it seems. You’ve got materials, function, design and storage. With the bodytek bottle, we’ve considered them all. Let us tell you more about the bodytek bottle…
The bodytek Bottle Materials
Mainly, because it’s BPA, BPS, EA and Phthalate free. You don’t need to know the science, but in a nutshell it’s this…
The production of plastics can involve a variety of chemicals, in particular BPA, BPS, EA and Phthalates. These are called ‘Phenols’ and they have a number of roles in the characteristics of plastics, such as making plastic more malleable, making them dry quicker, more resistant to heat etc.
The problem is these phenols have been linked to a whole host of health issues, including disrupting and changing hormone production in the body, affecting blood pressure and they’ve also been linked to some cancers. Long story short, their reputation isn’t exactly stellar, so we don’t want them to have any place in our products.
The reason of course it because it lasts a long time – you don’t throw it away after one use, like so many other bottles.
The bodytek Bottle Design
The bodytek bottle stands out. It’s not a run of the mill design, it’s been crafted with a higher quality of finish in mind.
As mentioned earlier, the bottle is made from a brushed stainless steel. This gives it a timeless look because there’s no paint to chip or scratch. It also means it’s dishwasher safe because there’s no parts that can be damaged or chipped.
The bottle opening is wider than most sports bottles. This is handy because it means you can drink more quickly from it (handy when you’re dehydrated after exercise). You can drink thicker drinks from it too such as smoothies, protein shakes and mass gainer shakes.
On the lid there are subtle indents for grip. They look good, but also they provide a little extra grip for wet or sweaty hands on the bottle. A small but important detail.
The base has grooves marked into it - a design feature that helps to keep the bottle balanced and stable. It also has the bottle information and branding on it, as we offer the bodytek bottle in three sizes (350ml, 500ml and 750ml) to suit your requirements.
These small details may seem like nothing to the consumer, but to us they’re the difference between a bottle we can be proud of and a run of the mill bottle that suits only one purpose.
The bodytek Bottle Function
The sports drinks bottle market is dominated by cheap plastic bottles, so much so that most consumers don’t understand how versatile a multi-function bottle can be.
A good bottle can replace a few of the others in your collection. The triple-insulated, high-grade stainless steel keeps your drink hot or cold for 24 hours. This is key – it means whether you like a breakfast smoothie to stay cool or a flask of coffee to stay hot, with the bodytek bottle you can do either.
The large opening means you could even take a soup to work in it – the bodytek bottle is truly multi-functional! It’s not often you can take your lunch is a bottle is it?!
The bodytek Bottle Storage
For a spell, the fashion in drinks bottles were for them to get bigger and bigger, but the problem with that is storage – they are enormous after a certain point!
The bodytek bottle is a slim design and fits easily into drinks holders in the car, gym bags and slots into cupboards without you having to clear out half of your belongings. You can easily fit the bottle into cup holders on gym machines, so unlike a lot of other gym bottles, it isn’t a hindrance to you – it’s easy to keep around.
You can carry the bodytek bottle around the gym with you and not feel as though you're carrying an enormous water tank.
