Different water bottles brands are finding their way into SHS

Social media has taken a substantial toll on the fashion industry causing microtrends such as the latest water bottle, Stanley’s. Every year there is a new trendy water bottle which causes young viewers on social media to over consume them. 

These trends have made their way to SHS causing different opinions among students.

And the newest addition to the collection is the Owala water bottle, some students think this water bottle makes the person look like a koala when they drink out of it. 

Many may follow these trends but some don’t even know it is a trend. Sophomore Sonya Rees has an Owala but doesn’t agree with the overconsumption this trend is causing. 

“Yes! I love that it makes me look like a koala,” Rees said. “I think it’s a little overrated to buy a hundred water bottles just to be trendy and popular, I don’t think water bottles should make you fit in.” 

The Hydro Flask became trendy in late 2019 to early 2020 and started off selling online on their own website as well as on Amazon. These bottles can now be seen sitting on the shelves of T.J. Maxx. 

While Owala’s are newer, some students still have Hydro Flasks from when they started to become trendy.

“Stanley is alright. Hydro Flask is more versatile because there’s different lids like if you want a straw you could get a straw lid … there’s different types of things that can fit your type and what you like,” junior Makayla Taylor said. 

Stanley’s have been selling quickly off the shelves causing fights to break out at stores such as Target because they have been releasing limited stock in design and color. 

Many people here at SHS have every type of water bottle as collecting them over the years has become trendy, but many regret following these trends.

“I bought the Stanley because of the height but thinking about it now it sucks, it leaks,” Freshman Vanessa Zarate said. 

Water Bottles are an evergrowing trend that made its way into SHS. There is a big competition to which one will be the next.

Hi, my name is Harjas Kaur Chauhan, and I’m excited to enter the 2023-2024 school year as a sophomore here at SHS. This is my first year on The Journal, and I am a Features writer. I am so excited to meet new people and work with everyone this year. As I get to know you, I want you to know a little bit about me! So I grew up in a small town in New Jersey and was born into a Sikh family. I started speaking Punjabi when I was four and was surrounded by culture and family. I loved to read and go to the Gurudwara as a child. My background is still an important part of me, and I carry pride in being a Sikh. When I turned eight, I moved to Indiana. It’s really different because here I can’t just travel to New York on the weekend, which is why I don’t really like it, but I can’t say it’s all that bad because I met my best friend Simran here. I love watching horror movies with her. Thanks for checking out my bio, now go check out the rest!
