Soda Stream Fountain Jet

I am a huge water drinker. I don’t really drink much soda or juice and I’m not a fan of energy drinks unless it is coffee or tea. I do however love the fizziness of sodas and carbonated drinks. I have been fully addicted to seltzer for years but they come in plastic bottles that just create alot of waste. I always recycle but I really wanted a way to have my yummy bubbles and not make more garbage so over the holiday’s my wonderful father purchased a Soda StreamFountain Jet for us! I absolutely love it. The value set comes with a test packet of all of the different flavors including an energy flavor, which I am interested to try just for funzies. The Fountain Jet has already saved me multiple trips to the store which means I have used less gas, I have saved money and created less waste and I have the fizziest, yummiest water ever!

I am kind of interested in trying the many flavors Soda Stream offers in syrups but in an effort to attempt to make soda better for you Soda Streamhas sweetened some of the flavors with Splenda. While I applaud their efforts to make less crappy drinks, soda is soda anyway you look at it. The other part of their do-it-yourself drink is you add the syrup yourself. You can put a tiny amount of flavor to make a mild soda or if you are making a cocktail this could be a quick and fun alternative to purchasing mixers. Personally I prefer actual lemon or lime juice in my water. You could get any fruit you like orange, berry or grapefruit and squeeze it into your seltzer if you like!
Soda Stream also has an exchange program for their cartridges. When you have used up yours you can send them back to Soda Stream and they will send you more!
Over all this is one of the best presents I could have even gotten! I get all the seltzer I want and I am saving money and our environment. If you like soda or seltzer this is an inexpensive alternative to spending money on bottles and bottles that will most likely not be recycled.

So I am a huge water drinker. I need water with me 24/7. I bring bottles with me everywhere I go. My one green downfall is seltzer. I love seltzer. I need the bubbles. My sadness over all of the plastic bottles I would take to the recycling center forced me to find an alternative. I tried to go back to plain water but it just wasn’t the same. I had to find an answer to my seltzer issue and I did! SodaStream is a great way to make your own sparkeling water or soda at home! I’m not a fan of soda , it is too sweet for me but you do have quite a variety of flavors to choose from.

Ofcourse before I made any purchases I had to make sure they were really green. This is their corporate website http://www.sodastream.com/earthfriendly, this is just a portion of what they are trying to do:

SodaStream is an “Active Green” company. Our solution when used by consumers is actively saving CO2 footprint. The more the system is used on a daily basis, the more the user actively saves. This differs from “Passive Green” brands, which use green-friendly production processes, but their products are not inherently helping the consumer save on their daily footprint.

Because SodaStream uses water straight from the tap, the system makes traditional store-bought beverage bottles obsolete. That means, less plastic manufactured, less plastic waste and less transport of bottled beverages.

Globally, 206 billion liter of bottled water was consumed in 2008 (Zenith International Global Bottled Water Report, 2008); the energy required to make water bottles in the US only, is equivalent to 17 million of barrels of oil in 2008 (Container Recycling Institute, 2002); The bottle industry consumed 100 barrels of oil each year, excluding transportation.

According to the US Recycling Institute, more than 80% of bottles in the US do not get recycled and end their lives in landfills. Eliminating bottles in the US each year would be equivalent to taking 100,000 cars off the road and eliminating 1 million pounds of CO2 out of the atmosphere.

We all know in a world of disposable that reusing is the way to go! We have reusable grocery bags, reusable eating utensils etc why not add a little fizzle to your drinking while helping decrease your carbon foot print!! Check SodaStream out!
