I’ve mentioned before that I am slowly moving away from using plastic in my life as much as possible. For me right now, it’s not totally avoidable. I have 2 kids, a dog and a job so being as dedicated to a plastic free life as some of my green colleagues isn’t coming as easy to me as I would like. But I try. In one way I have tried out several stainless steel water bottles for my daily water requirements. Tazzini contacted me about doing a review and since I hadn’t found a stainless water bottle that I really liked, I was anxious to check it out.
What I haven’t liked about other stainless bottles is the weight, the spout or lack thereof and the clangyness. If that’s even a real word. What I liked about the Tazzini water bottle was several things. It fits in the cup holder of my car, the bikes in my spin class and it fits in my hand. The middle tapers in making it easy to hold. The cap is pretty genius too. It has a flip top so you can keep the spout clean and covered. The spout itself is made so that it has a twisting lock feature to prevent leaking and spills. The cap/spout piece screws off for cleaning and for adding ice. The spout and top are made of BPA free recyclable plastic too. Of course, the rest is stainless steel which is a non leaching material and perfect for containing beverages.
My only “wish” for this bottle would be that it was double walled for insulation to keep the bottle from sweating, but compared to the competition this is a pretty neat water bottle.
