How to Stay Hydrated While Traveling

by Kiyara Thring

Are you planning a trip soon? It's essential to stay hydrated while travelling, especially if you're going to be out and about for extended periods. But with all the environmental concerns we have today, it's important to stay conscious of our impact on the planet. Here are some eco-friendly tips for staying hydrated while travelling:

Avoid sugary drinks

Sugary drinks can be tempting when you're travelling, but they can dehydrate you, making you feel more thirsty. Plus, they often come in plastic bottles that contribute to environmental pollution. Instead, why not try spicing up your water or opting for healthier choices such as natural fruit juices, coconut water and unsweetened teas?

Carry a reusable water bottle

One of the best things you can do for both your wallet and the environment is to carry a reusable water bottle. It's an excellent investment because you'll be able to refill it wherever you go, saving you money and preventing waste (not to mention you can get really cool ones *cough *cough Phox Go Water Bottle).

Choose a water filtration system

If you're travelling to a place where tap water is not safe for consumption, invest in a water filtration system. There are many options available, from portable water filters to water bottles with built-in filters. With a water filtration system, you can fill up your reusable water bottle with safe, clean water and avoid purchasing plastic water bottles. Is it a little bit dramatic to take your water filter jug with you on holiday? Absolutely not! Our Phox Wave jug is small and lightweight; making it the perfect jug to take with you on holiday. Leave it at your hotel and fill your water bottle before you head out for the day!

Refill at water fountains or refill stations

Instead of buying bottled water or using plastic cups, look for water fountains or refill stations where you can fill up your reusable water bottle for free. Many airports, train stations, and tourist attractions have these available, and it's a convenient way to stay hydrated without generating any waste.

Eat water-rich foods

Staying hydrated doesn't just mean drinking water. You can also eat foods that are high in water content, such as watermelon, cucumbers, and strawberries. These foods are not only refreshing, but they also provide essential nutrients to keep you healthy and hydrated.

In conclusion, staying hydrated while travelling is crucial for your health, but it's also important to be mindful of the environment. With these tips you can stay hydrated while reducing your impact on the planet. Happy travels!
