Last week, when I was doing research for my post about Chic & Eco Friendly Handbags for Fall 2009I came across these to-die-for reusable steel water bottles from Cool Canteens.
I first saw them on Celery Street, a neat little site that offers a nice selection of eco-friendly, recycled, reused, and refurbished gifts, housewares, and other practical items.
Before impulsively making a purchase, I googled the company to see if other websites sold the same water bottles and if I could get them cheaper! (I’m such a bargain hunter – even with semi-impulsive purchases.) I discovered that the company that makes them is actually Santa Barbara Design Studio. Needless to say, after a few minutes on that site, I had more than 1 item in my shopping cart. Among them was the Gardening Cool Canteen.
The caption on the bottle reads, “Gardening, yoga, bubble baths, medication, and I still want to smack somebody!”
Each stainless steel water bottle is 10 ½ inches tall, holds up to 25 ounces of liquid and is fully reusable so you can drink responsibly. In addition, the tight-fitting screw-on cap includes a handy metal clip (a carabiner type D-ring) that makes it a snap for attaching the bottle to a purse or backpack. Good for the environment, good for you and good for a laugh!
