What about fizzy water?
I'll admit it: I love sparkling water. Add a lime slice to a glass on a hot day, and I'm a happy camper. That's why I was so excited to find this today: Soda-Club!
The Soda-Club company touts these machines as environmentally friendly. According to the site, their soda maker:
- Reduce Packaging: Reusable Bottles
- No bottles or cans to recycle or throw away
- Saves thousands of containers for a family of four in a year
- Carbonating bottles last for three years
Additionally, "By operating completely on power supplied by the compressed air in the carbonator — an easily renewable fuel source — Soda-Club does not contribute to environmental pollution made by batteries. Empty carbonators are returned to Soda-Club to be cleaned, inspected and refilled with CO2 drawn naturally from the air. Carbonators are reusable as long as they remain in good condition."
So, breaking the bottled water habit doesn't mean you have to give up your sparkling water. I'll be investing in one of these in the near future and will let you know how it goes. Do you have one of these machines? Let us know how you like it in the comments!
Also, for those of you who drink pop (soda to most of you), Soda-Club also provides concentrated flavor mixes. Even more ways to cut down on waste!
