Faced with excessive production and consumption of single-use plastic bottles, it’s urgent to find solutions to limit their extremely harmful impact on the environment. Every year, almost 6 million tonnes of plastic end up in the oceans, considerably increasing the number of threatened marine animal species.
Among the solutions available, reusable water bottles are an excellent alternative to single-use containers. Durable and sturdy, they let you carry your drinking water or your favourite beverage wherever you want. What's more, certain types of water bottle are made from materials that can keep your beverage hot or cold. Available in a wide range of models and accessible to different budgets, the water bottle is already an essential accessory for all your outings and excursions. What are the features of a water bottle? Which water bottle to choose for kids? Decathlon gives you all its advice here.
An accessory to meet your kid's hydration needs
Whether you're taking them to school, to practice sport or on a family outing, a water bottle is sure to find a place in your kid's backpack. In particular, they'll be able to hydrate themselves at any time of day or activity. It's important to be able to meet your kid's daily hydration needs, which depend on their age and weight:
- Between the ages of 2 and 3, a kid needs around 900 ml of water a day.
- Between the ages of 4 and 8, they need 1.1 litres of water a day.
- From the age of 9 upwards, kids need 1.5 litres of water a day, just like adults.
Because it can be filled at any time, the water bottle makes it easy to satisfy your kid's daily water needs, which are vital to their health and well-being.
As well as being practical and environmentally friendly, the reusable water bottle saves you money. Thanks to this type of accessory, you no longer need to buy bottles of water not only in supermarkets, but also when you're out and about, at stands or motorway service areas, where prices are generally much higher. By providing a water bottle for each member of the family, you can avoid unnecessary expenditure.
