    I am a big fan of Nalgene. At home, I will heat water to almost boiling. Then pour into the Nalgene bottle. This is not to purify tap water. It is to let the water cool and create a vacuum in the bottle. I then make a label with the date and pack the bottle in my backpacking/camping kits. The water is good for about one year. Lesser quality bolttle melt when hot water is put in them. Of course, I also use Nalgene for daily use. Nalgene is the only "plastic" bottle I buy.

        Have my Nalgene container for a year now and I honestly think it will last for more than a decade as long as i don’t lose it. Good quality product indeed 👌🏼

                                      Nalgene should stopped making plastic bottles, so we don't have to use plastic bottles. It doesn't make sense. They should make bottles from different eco friendly and compostable material and it will make sense.

                                        lettuce child I agree. It’s more effective to tackle the more commonly used plastic item (that makes up a large percentage of the world’s plastic pollution) instead of eliminating something like a plastic straw or reusable bottles.

                                        The difference is that the single use plastic bottles last for a day, but I know people who have had nalgene bottles for 30+ years and they're still in very good condition.
