Dress Things Up! (water bottle & “hoodie”)

Hooded Sweatshirt Sports Water Bottles

The Sweatshirt Water Bottle dresses things up in a non-traumatizing way; specifically, with a “hoodie” for your water bottle. It is a BPA-free, biodegradable water bottle covered with a hooded sweatshirt. Plus, there’s a front pocket on it to hold things, such as your tickets to the big college game. It’s … Continue Reading
