I just love it when I find a product that I like and really works for me and then discover that the company that makes it is a terrific place. That is my experience with 50 Strong water bottles.
50 Strong makes a full line of bottles from insulated to a big 36 ounce bottle. While you might think there isn’t a lot to water bottles, 50 Strong proves that even simple things can be great.
The bottles come with three different lids: the chug cap, the flip & sip (a take on a straw bottle) and a sports top. The best thing about these lids is that any lid can fit on any bottle. No more searching for the right top for the bottle that you have – they’re all the right top!
The Chug top, while open to allow free flow of your drink doesn’t slosh out onto you when you drink, the straw top is comfortable and flips up and down for easy storage in a bag without leaking, and the sports top is tooth friendly. I was very impressed with the sports top. Last year my daughter lost a tooth thanks to a bad sports top bottle. That would not happen with the tough but pliant silicon top that 50 Strong uses.
The Mix It Up bottle comes with a comfortable silicon sleeve and a patented tornado shaped mixer. My husband immediately seized this bottle to make breakfast shakes in the morning that he can take with him when he brings our daughter to school. With a quick shake of the bottle, the Mix It Up blends up your favorite drink mix and you are ready to go.
All 50 Strong bottles come with a soft silicon lanyard that is designed to lay flush against the bottle for easy storage in a cupboard. Another thoughtful feature of these well designed bottles – all of the bottles made by 50 Strong fit in a cup holder – even the 36 ounce bottle!
The more I learned about 50 Strong the company the more I liked what I was hearing:
- All 50 Strong products are proudly made in the USA.
- CEO Ashley Thompson is committed to the idea of making America stronger by making great products in America.
I had the pleasure of meeting Ashley recently and her excitement about what she is doing is infectious! To further her goals of promoting manufacturing in America, Ashley stared the 50 Strong Foundation. 10% of the profits from 50 Strong go to the 50 Strong Foundation which provides scholarships to students interested in pursuing careers in manufacturing.
50 Strong is the whole package – a great product and great company. I could not be happier with these bottles!
