The polar bear has his very own bottle, me too!

1 Apr

Photo 19-03-2014 5 24 28 pmI love bottles, I carry mine everyday from home to the office and back home.
I also love to have my bottle when I travel.
My collection includes
. 2 aluminium Kleen Kantean (one double-wall, one regular simple wall),
. one Bryta with a filter,
. one spill-free Contigo,
and since a few days, a super cool Polar Bottle!

Again, I left home without my bottle, I was desperate and needed a bottle for the next 10 days in hot and sunny Miami. I couldn’t buy just any bottle! I needed a cool bottle that I would keep using back home.
After “a little benchmark of the market”, my choice went for the Polar Bottle.
A double-wall plastic bottle with a cool design but also practical and optimized for the best usage.
The characteristics of the Polar Bottle are the following
. light because of plastics,
. safe for your health because BPA and phthalate-free,
. dishwasher-safe (put in the top rack),
. freezer-safe,
. easy to maintain thanks to a removable valve,
. spill-free, and I tested it in my backpack where it’s laying on the bottom full of liquid and not a drop!

It’s not only a cheap ($10,95 for the 20 ounces) but also a trusted and stylish bottle.

A bottle with a twist

16 Apr

Photo 1-04-13 1 29 13 AM I was in Palm Springs, home of the desert by 90 degrees and guess what ? I forgot my Klean Kanteen bottle home (more than 9K km away). I had to take action and buy another one. So I decided to pay a visit to the Fresh & Easy food store next door to study the “bottles” market.

After lots of hesitation, I picked the soft squeeze bottle aqua by Brita, a soft BPA-free plastic bottle that comes with a coal filter. The coal filter reduces the chlorine taste and odor so you can fill it in with tap water.
You can also use the bottle without the filter, drink from the cap or the push-pull cap. It’s great to have 2 caps in one.
On the top of it, it comes with a handy handle, all this for 9,99$.

The filter change lasts 2 months or 40 gallons or 151 liters or 150 plastic bottles.

You can set a reminder on brita.com/reminders so you don’t forget to replace the filter when it’s time.
The 2 filters packΒ comes at 7,99$.

I also have 2 Klean Kanteen bottles in my collection.

. BPA-free dishwasher safe
. Price: 19,95$ for the 27oz

The double wall insulated Klean Kanteen, great for hot and cold beverages.
But don’t forget your gloves in the winter because stainless steel is cold for your little fingers…
Your hot chocolate will be stay warm for 6 hours and cold beverage cold for 24 hours.
. Klean Kanteen is BPA-free and dishwasher safe.
. Price: 27,95$ for the 16oz

The Klean Kanteen comes with different caps depending what you like (regulat cap, loop cap (great with Biner to hang them), push-pull cap and sippy cap).
I use my insulated Klean Kanteen while in hot climate and I need to keep the liquid cold for a long period of time. The regular aluminum Keam Kanteen is for everyday at work as well as the Brita.
I like to combine my Brita and Original Klean Kanteen with a neoprene sleeve to keep it cold.

Tervis Tumbler

14 Nov

Tervis Tumbler is a Detroit company founded in 1946 that invented the double walled insulated tumbler.
I discovered those glasses 2 years ago and I love them !

Why ?
First, I like the fact that you can personalize each glass you buy (it reminds me of where I was when I bought it. Check out my collection and you’ll be able to map my visits in the US πŸ˜‰ )
I discovered then the specificities of the Tervis Tumbler:

  • the double-walled insulation, no more sweaty mugs when you drink your ice tea by 110F, no more “ouch …ouch … it’s too warm” when you drink hot chocolate on the way to the office
  • the insulation will keep your warm/cold beverages longer warm/cold

The Tervis tumbler exists in 5 different sizes that you can accessorize with lids (travel lids, straw lids or sipping lids for the little ones). It’s handy to keep the flies away from your beer and to reduce the spilling on your desk to a minimum πŸ˜‰
The lid changed recently (before, there was just a little hole that may cause some accidents in your bag like spilling if you were shaking it …). Now the hole is better placed and it’s almost zero-spilling !
The lids come in 13 colors. No problem to find the one that will match your tumbler design.
The design is also a plus: Tervis propose to you designs from Disney , MLB, NHL, NBA, John Deere, Marvel … and if you don’t find what you want, you can always make it (personalized fonds are available)!
If you like the Tervis tumbler, you should like the ice bucket or the shaker too.
By the way, the Tervis tumbler are

    • lifetime garanteed
    • unbreakable
    • dishwasher-safe
    • microwave-safe
    • made in USA

and holliday mugs are in !!
Since the entry of the TT in my life, I threw away all my old glasses and my cupboard is full of 16oz TT.

ChaseIt or BChased?, ChaseIt because

  • the Tervis tumblers are BPA-free since January 2011
  • it’s fun and useful
  • you’ll get a free delivery for online orders above 75$
  • you’ll diminish your consumption of plastic mugs which is good for the planet
