Win a Pura Stainless Bottle! - ENDED

We've all heard the statistics- We've all seen the numbers-


But are you still drinking from plastic water bottles?
If so, here are some shocking numbers for you!

  • Plastic water bottles ARE recyclable, so you may think a reusable bottle is a non-issue. However, very few folks recycle their bottles. 8 out of 10 plastic water bottles end up in landfills according to the Container Recycling Institute (CRI).

  • The Earth Policy Institute notes that it takes about 1.5 million barrels of oil yearly to make plastic water bottles.

  • Lastly, just to manufacture plastic bottles is harmful for the planet. Creating plastics over and over again, releases chemicals into our air, soil, and water supply. Not to mention that these same chemicals can be leached into your child’s beverage from the plastic bottle.

  • Bottled water is no bargain either: It costs 240 to 10,000 times more than tap water. For the price of one bottle of Evian, a San Franciscan can receive 1,000 gallons of tap water. Forty percent of bottled water should be labeled bottled tap water because that is exactly what it is. Read more HERE.

So what can you do to help?

Buy a Pura Stainless Steel Bottle!


Pura Stainless Bottles believe it is not enough to drink from a stainless bottle if it is still sealed with a plastic cap! That's why their caps are also stainless steel! They are durable, and built to last!

  • 100% BPA-free

I knew about Klean Kanteen, but not these. Very cool. I'd like the .6L size in the stainless steel - great for me and my son to share while out and about. The colors are great, but I'd worry about scratches...
