I have carried a reusable water bottle in my bag for more than twenty years. Over time we have built a varied selection – this one is bigger, this one has a filter, this one is tougher and so on. Some bottles have stood the test of time and others have failed quickly. The Aladdin 0.35 litre Aveo has stood the test of time – around 4 years at this point. It has done so by being a simple, lightweight, 100% leakproof small bottle that can easily be refilled. It is made out of BPA free Eastman Tritan copolyester which is stain, smell and shatter resistant.
Sometimes, a small bottle is all that’s needed and when I am not carrying a large everyday carry, it’s the bottle of choice. It fits inside a large coat pocket or a very small bag with the reassurance that it’s not going to leak even if it’s rolling around sideways in my wife’s handbag. Cass loves it so much we obtained a second for her school lunch box and again – it’s been the perfect size to fit in a lunchbox and it neither leaks nor has any crevices where dirt or mould can hide away. Highly recommended.
Aveo bottles use a unique lid structure with two sections. First, there is an unscrewable lid that exposes an easy-pour spout, but this itself is removable to give a wide-mouth to the bottle for cleaning and refilling. Under the wide mouth is a ring with an attached fabric handle.

About Aladdin and Pacific Market International (PMI)
“Aladdin is a brand of privately held Pacific Market International (PMI) which is also proud owner of the iconic Stanley® brand. PMI is headquartered in Seattle, with offices in London. Shanghai and Manila.” Aladdin was started in 1908… Believe it or not, Aladdin’s beginnings trace back to lamps…..
It all started in 1908, when Victor Samuel Johnson Sr, a soap salesman, in Chicago, Ill, became interested in kerosene mantle burners. Dissatisfied with the available kerosene lamps of the time, Johnson began selling and dealing US made mantle lamps. He incorporated his lamp sales business and called the company the Mantle Lamp Company of America.
In 1912 the company began manufacturing mantle lamps that gave off a steady white light without smoke and called these lamps “Aladdin lamps,” after the magical lamp and wish-granting genie in the popular children’s story. The Aladdin name was born.” PMI purchased Aladdin in 2002. Read more about Aladdin here on their official site. PMI has a robut CSR (corporate social responsibility) policy in place, available on the PMI site here.
