A Green Way to Replace Soda
August 3, 2011 229 Comments
Last week, Snack Girl wrote a post about naturally flavored seltzer and a bunch of people shared their favorite "soda-fix".
Buy a SodaStream and get their MyWater flavors (unsweetened, natural flavors). The kids love to "make" the water, there's no cans or bottles to deal with, stuff doesn't go flat because you make it as you use it and it's much more economical.
And, Melissa, Donna, and Shannon chimed in! And, now I am going to contribute because I own one of these bad boys.
This photo above is of my SodaStream that I purchased over three years go. It is so GREEN. It costs about 30 cents a liter, and there are ZERO trips to the recycling station.
The SodaStream uses tap water that I filter and it tastes great. I can adjust how bubbly I want my water, and I use only what I need. No more leftover half bottles of flat water!
AND, they do have natural flavors with zero calories to add the the water so you can make you own flavored seltzer see: MyWater Flavor Essences.
You can always grab some fresh lemon or lime to add a little flavor.
SodaStream is giving away a Start Up Kit to one of my readers (worth $100).
There is one catch. If you continue to use it, you will have to buy refills for the CO2 tank - they cost $30 and will fill 110 liters of water. I use mine for about 3-4 months (but I drink ALOT of the stuff). Exchanging the tanks is super easy and the customer service has been excellent so far.
