Happy New Year’s Eve Eve folks. I’m going to post my New Year stuff tomorrow. Stayed tuned.
In the meantime I do have an awesome new product that I’m totally thankful for. This cool product came to me via Santa Claus (AKA Big Sis). Since Big Sis knows that I am single-handedly filling up landfills with my bottled water consumption, she got me this:
Sorry this picture is so stinkin’ small. It’s the best I could find. However, I’ll just tell you about this cool gift. It’s called the Power Bottle USA.
Basically it’s a water bottle that comes with a filter. The filters are made of ground coconut shells and they help reduce the taste of chlorine in tap water, which is the whole reason I always drink bottled water. I can’t stand the taste of tap water. I’ve been using this bottle with the filter for a couple of days now and I really like it. The water does taste much better and I feel good about reducing the amount of plastic I throw away.
You can read more about the company here (they have a lot of different options) or you can go here and get it from Amazon.com (this is the one I have). I believe they both offer filters that you can purchase separately so that you don’t run out. In the long run the cost of the filters will actually save you money since one filter lasts for about 20 gallons.
I know that most of you are like me and will research and read all of the reviews. The only downside that I saw was that some people said they had a hard time sucking water from the straw. I personally did not have this issue. Just call me Hoover. Ha ha.
So what are you thankful for today?
bad way to finish that post… HAHAHA!!!!
I love your updated header with the MCM bib in the back there!
I'm thankful for heading to Tampa this weekend! I'll be sure to email you for plans!
I am thankful for friends… old ones, the ones who haven't seen in ages, but when you get together, it seems like just yesterday you were partying with.
I'd like that in the office. The water there tastes terrible due to the chlorine.
I am thankful that my body carried me through an awesome 2010. It's been a great year physically and emotionally, and I've stayed strong and healthy. YAY.
I have a waterbottle that I literally take everywhere with me! Love it! Glad to hear you got a great one from your sis!
Today I'm especially thankful for my parents who visited for Christmas, and my husband who was extremely patient as their flight was cancelled twice and they ended up staying with us three days longer than anticipated (in a 1bedroom apartment). He's a pretty amazing guy!
Happy New Year!
Hmm. So we should give these as gifts to everyone we know who sucks? 😉 Wishing you a very Happy New Year!
Very cool. Who knew that coconut shells were good filters? Is it bad that I don't mind the taste of tap water?
