Eco Friendly Travel – Using Stainless Steel Water Bottles

My goal for 2014 is to eliminate as much plastics as possible from our lives. It is truly incredible all the plastic that we use without even thinking about it. The hard part is, most of it you really don’t have control over. So the one thing I found that I DO have power over are water bottles.

Living in Guatemala you can’t simply go up to the counter of any restaurant or find a drinking fountain like you would in the US since the water isn’t treated. So you have to carry a water bottle around with you everywhere you go or buy plastic bottles full of water that who-knows-how-long they have been in there or sitting out in the sun while the sales reps bring them to the stores.

Searching for eco friendly water bottles is easy, but narrowing it down to just the right one is always a science. After much research and reading reviews I decided on Ecotanka.

Fun facts about Ecotanka

Ecotanka was born out of love for the environment.

They were the first to introduce the concept of a stainless steel and eco friendly water bottles in New Zealand. Have you noticed that most of the coolest things seem to have been started in New Zealand from snowboarding to bungee jumping.

The Sports Tanka is one of their most popular water bottles and rightfully so.

My Take on It

Most bottles that I have found have large spouts making it hard for younger kids to wrap their mouths around. And don’t even get me started on how messy they can be while driving. Kids seem to always get ‘desperately thirsty’ when in a car less than two minutes from home.

My baby had no problem drinking out of this bottle.

And was even able to unscrew it, without me worrying that he will lose the top forever.

And you can’t beat that it is eco friendly. And by the looks and feels of it, it is sturdy and, unless my son losses it, will be around for a long time.

Contact and Information for Ecotanka

I stick to the product’s webpages. Sure you can get this via Amazon and other online or off line retailers, but I prefer to go directly to their site to see what they have available and what discounts and sales are going on.

We got the most popular model, but they have a ton of products to choose from.

And, when you like them on Facebook or follow them on Twitter you can find out about some cool new products and even better – giveaways!
