POST DEC. 1: Many of us don’t drink enough water every day, and if you have a weakened immune system, like those living with HIV, the effects of dehydration can be even more serious. Drinking water can provide a variety of benefits, such as reducing the side effects of medications, flushing out medicines already used by your body, helping to alleviate dry mouth and constipation, and helping to increase your energy level. The CDC recommends that people with weakened immune systems drink bottled water that’s been treated using reverse osmosis, distillation, or filtered with an absolute 1 micron filter.

POST ANY DAY: It’s important for parents to help their children establish healthy hydration habits early. Children will drink what their parents give them, so make sure you provide water instead of sugary beverages when running errands or playing in the park. Drinking water as your first choice to quench your thirst goes a long way in helping ensure health and wellness for a lifetime. Learn more: #HealthyHydration #DrinkMoreWater

POST ANY DAY: Bottled water is not only the healthiest beverage option — it is also the safest. #BottledWater is highly regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which ensures that all bottled water products are safe to consume. That oversight extends to all bottled water packaging. FDA approves any packaging material used to protect bottled water from contamination. Read more:

POST ANY DAY: ICYMI: In the colder months, you are less likely to feel thirsty AND you have increased respiratory rates. That means when it’s cold out, your body loses more water than you think! So, be extra mindful to regularly consume water to stay adequately hydrated throughout the winter days. Learn more here: #DrinkMoreWater

POST DEC. 13: DID YOU KNOW? The word “Chocolate” comes from the Mayan word “xocol,” which means “hot,” and the Aztec word “atl,” which means “water.” So, “xocolatl” originally meant “hot water.” And there’s no better pairing than “hot water” and cocoa to create a nice cup of hot chocolate on this #NationalCocoaDay! Celebrate by gathering with friends and family while indulging in a comforting chocolatey drink —and don’t forget to stay hydrated as well with #BottledWater. Learn more about the origins of hot chocolate here:

POST ANY DAY: DID YOU KNOW? Bottled water containers use less plastic than soda bottles (on average, soda containers use 141% more PET plastic due to their carbonation and/or bottling processes). Bottled water drinkers also litter less and recycle more often. AND, water bottles are the most common PET container found in curbside recycling programs (bottled water accounts for 52%, while soda is just 16%). When you recycle your empty plastic beverage containers, you play a key role in reducing plastic in the environment. Together, we can work to ensure this valuable PET material is used again. #RecycleRight

POST DEC. 21: Your hydration needs don’t slow down during the winter—in fact, they actually increase! The level of humidity in the air (outdoors and indoors) is less, resulting in much drier air compared to other times of the year. That’s one of the numerous factors that lead to faster dehydration in the winter. Learn more here: #DrinkMoreWater #HealthyHydration

POST ANY DAY: YES, it’s true! PET plastic bottles are 100% recyclable — including PET water bottles! Recycled PET plastic is considered a high-value material by packaging manufacturers because it can be re-used to make a lot of things — like carpets, clothes, shoes, and (yes) even new bottles! So next time, remember to #RecycleRight: Empty your PET container, put the cap back on, then recycle it to give that bottle another life! Learn more at #DrinkMoreWater #HealthyHydration
