The ultimate non-plastic water bottle
By now, we should all know not to be buying plastic water bottles (some 38 billion of them are pitched into the landfill each year, not to mention they cost a fortune, comparitively, to completely safe-to-drink tap water, which here in California, costs an average of just 1/6th of a penny per gallon). If you’re the proud owner of a SIGG or Nalgene bottle, thanks for doing your part. If you’re not, here’s the latest innovation that will hopefully tip the scales: EcoUsable has partnered with water filter company Seychelle to bring you the world’s only stainless steel bottle with a built-in water filter that eliminates 99.99% of all microbial, chemical, and dissolved solid contaminants. The Ech2o bottle costs just $39.99 for a 25 oz. bottle- not bad compared to $20+ competitors, which don’t have the filter. Now you have no excuse to be buying plastic bottles: you can have your cake and eat it too (or rather, drink your water, and filter it too).
