A few years ago, my dad started taking a large mason jar filled with water with him whenever he drove somewhere. He and my mom were trying to avoid the chemicals in plastic water bottles, so my dad's cute solution was using mason jars! I think this is a wonderful idea for staying hydrated at work. Just keep a mason jar on your desk, and when you head to a meeting or to your car at the end of the day, screw on the lid and you have hydration on the go. (Apparently, my great-grandfather used to use mason jars as on-the-go water glasses, so maybe that's where my dad got the idea!)

And, that's a good thing, since many health experts believe that BPA may not only increase your risk for certain diseases, but it might also make you fat!
