Rubbermaid Filter Fresh Water bottle Review


I have used a water filter pitcher for few years now. I love it because it is easy to use and it makes the tap water taste so good and fresh. It is also eco-friendly, as you don’t need to buy bottled water anymore. The only problem is that I can’t put it in my purse when I go on a bike ride or shopping. It is too large. Each time, I had to fill a reusable water bottle with filtered water. But when you ride for 1 hour, you need to drink a lot and your reusable water bottle needs a refill at least one. Since I refused to buy any plastic water bottle, I had to refill it with tap water or water fountains. It was not as tasteful and fresh as my filtered water. When I got the opportunity to review the Rubbermaid Filter Fresh Water bottle, I was so excited. This will solve my problem and will help me make another step toward eco-friendly habits.

Let’s check Rubbermaid Filter Fresh Bottle Characteristics



  • Hold up to 20 oz which is perfect for my bike rides
  • Comes in several colors, including: Baltic Teal, Lime, Black, Plum
  • Price: $9.99 and comes with a filter.
  • It has a finger loop which is convenient if you go on a walk or shopping
  • It fits cup holders, which is perfect for a car, a bike or a stroller
  • The Rubbermaid filter features a built-in tracking dial to remind you when it is time to replace your filter. I find this feature very practical because you don’t have keep track of when you need to change the filter. Just set the dial for 2-3 months and you will know when it is time to replace it.

  • The Rubbermaid Filter Fresh water bottle has a twist on cap. I also like the narrow mouth opening, which avoids any spills.

  • Below are the refills for the filters


First time use of the Rubbermaid Filter Fresh Water Bottle


  • You need to unscrew the filter, remove the overwrap and reattach.
  • Fill with tap water. The first time I could not fill with water properly. I screwed the lid so tight that the water could not get in the bottle. The lid needs to be a bit loose.
  • Squeeze over sink to flush the water
  • Refill and enjoy

My review of the Rubbermaid Filter Fresh Water Bottle

I am in total love with this bottle. I use it everywhere: in the grocery store, during my bike rides, in the park with the kids. It is so convenient and lightweight. I just fit it in my bag or on my bike and I am set. When the bottle is empty, I just fill it from a water fountain or any water tape, and I have a fresh water in few seconds. Believe me, you will notice the difference when you try it. You will love the water taste and you will make another eco-friendly step.

I really appreciate the wide lid. I can easily slip in some ice cubes. During the hot summer days, I will slip in some iced juice cubes. It will be a treat on the beach! The finger loop attaches to the lid. I will not lose the lid!! This is a GREAT addition for me. With my earlier bottles, I used to lose my lids every time and can’t use them anymore.

My son tried this bottle during some school days. He had such bad experiences with his previous bottles: either he lost the lid, or the bottle leaked on his school papers (because the bottle did not have a tight lid). I always had a note from the teacher asking me to change the bottle because it made a mess in the classroom. With this Rubbermaid Filter Fresh Water bottle, everything was fine. He even told me: the water tastes so good!! This is great news. Now I need to get another bottle for me because he did not want to give it back.

    Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Compost
    Reusing packaging material saves more energy than recycling. By avoiding extra packaging, you save both energy and landfill space. Yard and kitchen waste (leaves/grass/vegetable scraps) are 30% of trash. Reduce this amount by composting. Also be sure to re-use plastic bags, or better yet… refuse plastic bags when you really don’t need them.

  3. I use re-usable cloth bags for groceries. They save me from using plastic ones and as an added bonus, they are much sturdier (and cuter).

  4. I save and reuse every plastic bag that comes into my home (bread bags, store bags, deli bags, etc.) for cleaning out my cat box.

  5. Instead of throwing those packaging peanuts in the garbage, I sewed them into a towel, loosely. I use them to keep casseroles warm when taking them to a dinner. One on the bottom and a second on top.

  6. We recycle everything I can. First we had to find out what was recycleable in our community as all things aren’t accepted and it just makes more work for the recycle people to get things they can’t work with. We also have a “Reuse-it” store in our community. They take things like small balls of yarn, pieces of fabric that can’t be used by people who sew, variable plastic containers that aren’t accepted at the recycle place, clean straws, all sorts of things that might have been thrown out in the past. It’s a great place for artists to ‘shop’ – teachers too.

  7. Use re-usable bottles for school or anywhere you have to go for drinking water instead of buying bottles of water.

  8. I try to buy local flowers, as most flowers come from South America and have to travel a long way to get here.

  9. My eco-friendly tip is to get an energy assessment to see if there are places in your house where heat or A/C are being wasted due to drafts, etc.

    I never use throw away baggies, i always put all our lunches in reusable containers ! I also never buy plastic bags, I buy the totes for 1.00

  11. Instead of purchasing ready made snack size pouches do your own by dividing up snacks and putting them in reusable containers
