Summer Essentials Start Kit
Summertime brings a lot of amazing things like barbeques, long sunny days, and spending time outside! However, getting hot in your wheelchair can be uncomfortable and limit how much you enjoy some of the summer activities. Staying cool can be tricky but we’ve made a summer essentials checklist to help you enjoy summer without over-heating!
Keeping cool and staying hydrated are essential for enjoying hot summer days! We are loving Chilly’s bottles for their unique colours and patterns but the coolest bit is that Chilly’s bottles keep your water super cold for up to 24 hours. Having a reusable bottle like Chilly’s is also a great way to be environmentally-friendly and buy less plastic water bottles!
They are also an environmentally friendly company and all of the bottles are BPA free!
