Finding replacement for single use plastic water bottles

Given all the efforts by this circle, India may ban single use plastic as early as Oct 2, 2019. With this post we would like to seek your very specific inputs on what could be the possible replacements for water bottles made of single use plastic.

The water in a bottle is now very much a need of the common citizen, esp during travels and when away from home, school, college and offices.

Please be as specific as possible in your responses. We look forward to your inputs! more

Thin single use plastic bottles should be stoped from production. Instead individuals must be made to buy bottles which are thick and they will not throw them after use. This will reduce pollution. Single use plastic tumbles, cups, and other products must be stoped production, and in their place thin metal articles may be encouraged for production more  
Plastic water bottles must be replaced with glass bottle for which extra charges may be implemented by the company and it is a consumer's will whether he/she wants to buy the glass water bottles or manage water from home just like people have started keeping a jute or cotton based carry bag from their home when they are being forced to do that.
It will take some time but defently it will be a big service to environment by removing single use plastic completely from entire india. more  
What were you doing when plastic bottles were not available?Go back to the same things. more  
Let everyone carry there own flasks/bottles and get it filled whenever required. Today, most hotels give filtered water and stations also have the same. And railways need to stop giving the big ltr. bottle as part of the ticket cost. They can give water in cups on a need basis. more  
We are talking if single use plastic bottles- the ones used by packaging water in small quantity. There are other multi use good plastics not heavy and light steel bottles or thurmos which can be used again and again with adequate cleaning. more
