Americans who have resolved to be more eco-friendly, or to drop a few pounds (or both!) can kill two birds with one stone with Sodastream. This cool do-it-yourself gadget comes with reusable carbonating bottles, which you fill with good old tap water to make soda, seltzer, or virtually any kind of carbonated drink. If Soda-Club makers are used to make just half of the soda or seltzer the average American consumer drinks in a year, a family of four can reduce their use of throwaway single-serve beverage containers by 1,000 every year.
Good for the earth and good for the waistline-- Sodastream's soda mixes are free of high-fructose corn syrup, and contain two-thirds less the calories, sugar and carbs than store-bought soda. Also new on the market is Sodastream MyWater- zero calorie flavor essences for sparkling water!
I received the Sodastream for free for this post and the drinks taste great! It's a really handy thing to have around! I think it's also fun to make the drinks!
