Pure Refreshment

You've been told a thousand times not to buy bottled water. But you're on the road and parched, your Hydro Flask is empty, and the gas station's drinking fountain looks like a urinal. On top of that, you want something tasty. Good news: You can douse your thirst—and your guilt—with these eco-suggestions from our panel of beverage experts.

"I like fresh fruit juices from NAKED JUICE, a brand that partners with the Rainforest Alliance, operates a LEED-certified bottling plant, and uses 100 percent recycled-plastic bottles. Its Pomegranate Blueberry is especially refreshing, with just the right balance of tart and sweet. For an even more ecofriendly and economical thirst quencher, fill a reusable bottle with filtered water, a handful of frozen berries, a slice of lemon, and a sprig of mint." About $3.75 for 15.2 ounces
