Gear Review: Drinkfinity Bottles and Pods

You have a lot of choices when it comes to staying hydrated. There’s gatorade, powerade, and various other brands out there, but they all tend to be loaded with sugar, plus they come in single-use plastic bottles. Drinkfinity challenges this notion with their sustainable bottles and juice pods! I know what you’re thinking, what are pods? Well, they are small 1.42 oz (42 ml) plastic pods which contain concentrated juice which can be mixed with water to provide maximum hydration! The pods come in nine different flavors including Watermelon Lemonade and my favorite Mango Coconut Water.

The juice pods are packed with simple ingredients and no artificial flavors or sweeteners. This means any sugar in the juice is natural juice from the fruit. The pods are simple to use but it’s still best to read the instructions the first time.

Pro tip – Firmly push the pod onto the top of the bottle and shake it vigorously!

PaddleXaminer tested the Drinkfinity clear bottle over the last few months. The bottle comes in a nice cylinder shape which is easy to grip. There is a magnet in the lid and on the side of the bottle so the lid doesn’t flap around when unscrewed. The lid comes off and reveals the pod piecer. I like to put a bit of ice in my bottle before putting in the pod to make it a cold drink, giving it that extra bit of refreshing taste. Now you’re probably thinking, how is this sustainable if I have to throw away the pods; well the pods are recyclable! Simply go to Loop website to request a bag and mail in your used pods. In addition to recycling the pods, have the piece of mind the pods use 65 percent LESS plastic than a typical 20 oz (591 ml) single-use bottle.

Drinkfinity products keep you hydrated and use less plastic than the competition! Check out their website for more details!
