Happy Workout Gear: S'well + FEED
Working out can feel like a chore sometimes. Here's to gear we love for being functional inside and outside the gym and for motivating us to be better to ourselves and to others.
We adore S'well bottles. They keep drinks cold for a full day and hot for 12 hours. Plus, they help reduce the huge landfill footprint of plastic bottles. The brand also gives back by supporting initiatives like the U.S. Fund for UNICEF's clean drinking water programs. We have S'well bottles in different sizes for road trips, the office and when we are on-the-go. They are also perfect for workouts. Our gym, Equinox, is responsible for introducing us to our first S'well two years ago. Colors that pop and a range of texture and design options make the brand even more appealing. There are also snazzy, limited edition bottles. S'well offers fashionable hydration that does good, in more ways than one.
In the last few years, gym bags have merged with everyday bags. Still, it's nice to have a separate FEED tote to perfectly house your workout essentials. We've long admired the FEED 1 Bag made out of organic cotton and burlap (it's reversible!). The bag's design was inspired by the look of the UN World Food Programme's food ration bags. A few years ago at a UNICEF event, we bought a FEED Guatemala Artisan Bag. The draw to buy was made stronger by the donation associated with each sale. Every FEED bag purchased provides a certain number of meals. The FEED 1 Bag supplies one child with school meals for an entire year! Our FEED tote is still going strong years after buying it.
The bottom line is S'well and FEED are chic, functional, and most importantly, make a positive impact. Now, go have a feel-good workout.
