I am fed up of buying plastic water bottles for work. Can anyone recommend a good water bottle I can fill daily and take to work? The ideal one would be around 750ml, easy to clean, keep water cool and never get smelly. Thank you.

Little bit bigger but I've got this for work, great for coffee or cold drinks....

Think it was around £15 from amazon

Buy a cyclists one. Wash it in the evening with warm soapy water and use Milton tabs to give it a soak in the kitchen sink occasionally to keep it clean.

my dp is a massive fan of kleen kanteen, they come in a range of sizes/colours, are metal (which i think keeps water fairly cool, although not if you leave it in direct sunlight on the beach!) and have a wider neck than other bottles, so are more like drinking from a glass (although i believe sports tops are also available).

Thanks for the great tips I especially like the look of clean canteen. My DH is a MAMIL and has a great assortment of cycling bottles, but I must admit I'm not to keen on that plastic bottle smell.
When I look at the avalanche of plastic water bottles our 2 offices generate I'm determined to buy a reusable one.

I have a lovely stainless steel Jerry Bottle:

I have two glass ones with a silicone outer skin that I love, one as a screw off lid and one with a fold out straw. This Lakeland one is cute:

Still plastic, but there is an nz made phthalte free job in wilko for £1.50. Blue and green, can't remember the brand.

Not exactly locally sourced I know!
