Keepin’ it Cool with IZOLA

keep cool izola water bottles
In 2005, Neil Rasmus (one of the men behind New York City’s biggest full service photo companies – Billy Farrell Agency) and Richard Brandt decided to bring some life to otherwise mundane objects by incorporating good quality with great design – thus began IZOLA. In 2010, the company started collaborating with Aesthetic Movement’s design team to start applying their utilitarian ideals (items built to last) to a larger selection of products.

Each item is made with great care and strong attention to detail. Some of the items you will find when browsing their online store: flasks, soaps, candles, laundry bags, bamboo tooth brushes, handkerchiefs, shoe brushes, home textiles, hardware, ceramics and luggage. But one item that seems like an appropriate purchase this week – their water bottle.

Since Earth Day is right around the corner, we’ve decided to re-evaluate some things in our lives to help keep the planet a happier place. Leave it to IZOLA to help us limit our plastic waste. IZOLA makes the perfect water bottle that will keep your beverages hot or cold – with eco-friendly stainless steel. This water bottle is also full of style – drawing inspiration from utilitarian ideals, there are 10 dapper variations to choose from – one of which will teach you how to say “water” in 13 different languages. Others have inspirational phrases – “onward and upward” and “unity”. So what are the details that make this stainless steel water bottle different from others on the market? 201 grade stainless steel construction – which means superior durability. A double-wall insulated shell will keep your liquids hot or cold for 12 hours (hello, beach) and a wide mouth designed for easier cleaning.

Back to that 12 hour rule -IZOLA actually tested the product with standard and digital thermometers to find that the cold liquids climbed 5 degrees, while the hot liquids only cooled off by 30 degrees. You can pick up your water bottle in either 10oz or 25oz. And since we love our readers so much – and since IZOLA loves you guys too, we’re helping you take 20% off your next purchase – just use the code IZOLA-MANUAL
