Holiday Gift Guide: KOR ONE Hydration Vessel Review and Giveaway

KOR2

KOR_actualsize3KOR ONE has the most unique designed ec0-friendly water bottles that I’ve seen on the market! The chic design and organizational causes KOR supports make these stylish 25 ounce bottles most desirable in every way!

A few words from KOR…

“You might notice that the KOR logo’s green and blue arms reach upward to close the water drop but don’t quite touch. The gap acknowledges the constant divide between our goals and achievements. Once you’re on the path to “being green,” you find there’s always something more you could do – and in the eyes of some you’re never doing quite enough. That’s OK. Finding balance – in ourselves and in the environment – is a continuous process that never truly ends. It only matters that you’re on your way.”

My Thoughts…

I was sent a sent KOR ONE Hydration Vessel in ice blue to review.  I’d like to point out that the color of these bottles are very significant as each color represents specific water-related causes in which KOR donates a portion of their profits. The causes and colors are as follows:

Ice Blue Ocean Protection -Algalita Marine Research Foundation
Sawgrass Green Watershed Protection -The Wetlands Initiative
Sunrise Orange Container Recycling -The Container Recycling Institute
Orchid Pink Global Water Crisis -Blue Planet Run

Unlike many other bottles, the KOR ONE Hydration Vessel was created  to motivate those whom use it as on the inner area of the cap is place to add KOR Stones-which are disc-shaped tokens with a message that provides a little bit of inspiration each time you drink. I found this feature quite clever and I have a lot of fun changing my discs on weekly basis.

My Likes…

  • BPA-free, health safe materials (made from Tritan)
  • Hinged cap for easy open / close ( which is great if you are chasing a toddler around and only have one hand free plus having this bottle around for myself prevent a lot less spills on the floor from my daughter grabbing my cups!)
  • Thread less, perfect spout ( No twisting or turning or dis-comfortable ridges)
  • You can use this vessel for all sorts of beverages as it can withstand freezing as well as hot beverages.
  • Odor, taste, and stain resistant!
  • Ice Cube Friendly! No need to purchase special shaped ice trays either!
  • Dishwasher safe (top–rack) which is perfect because I don’t always have the time to wash things by hand.
  • Leak proof! ( I’ve had no leaking whatsoever with use)
  • Cushion Base keeps it from slipping as well as keeping furniture protected
  • It’s stylish and unique looks perfect on my office desk and on my coffee table!

My Dislikes…

  • The shape, though it looks great and stylish, it won’t fit in any regular cup holder
  • The handle, it’s not these easiest to carry along with you…

Overall Thoughts…
