For more than 30 years, C and I have been big club soda drinkers....and my preference is for absolutely no flavoring, be it scotch or lemon! We were buying dozens of bottles a week, and I was drinking it with every meal, and often in the evenings after dinner. This is simply charged water with no added sodium, so for my health's sake, it was fine. But I began to think about all of the extra plastic I was adding to the earth. "Back in the good old days" C and I had a couple of those soda bottles that you screwed a little co2 cartidge onto and phssssssssssst, you had soda. So we looked into and purchased the 2009 version:
We picked up our new 'machine' on Saturday and I must tell you that I am really pleased with it: it is easy to use and produces a good little charge to the water. It comes with the charged bottle of co2 (which is attached to the back, so you can't see it in this picture), the 'soda maker', and two bottles for carbonating. We use the cold, filtered water out of our refrigerator tap, then screw it into the soda maker, press the button on the top, and within a minute, you have charged water. You can read all about it here. Oh, and we are in no way affiliated with this company...we just like the product and are thrilled that we are no longer having to purchase and then recycle a gazillion bottles of plastic each week.
These little lovelies arrived in the mail from my blogger buddy Elizabeth this week:
YES WE CAN!!!
