Eco Vessel Insulated Straw Bottle Review

I want to change gears from the dramatic stuff to something a little more fun. I have a ton of things to post in the coming week. So to kick it off, I wanted to talk about sippy cups.  Ok I know we have exhausted the sippy cup angle around here in years past but I have fallen in love with a new product and wanted to share it with you.  Might as well do a giveaway to lighten up the mood and to welcome all my new readers.  Hi!

For years we have been firm Klean Kanteen users.  I love them.  They’re a perfect size and they look cool and my kids like them. My oldest son, when he started school this year, was asked to bring “a drink” to school every day for snack time and for playground recess.  I tend to try and avoid juice boxes for school because of a few reasons but mainly, it’s too much sugar and my son fills up on juice and is too full to eat any food. It’s a lose-lose situation.  So we fill a water bottle for school and he uses that.

We tested out a flip-top Insulated Stainless Steel Straw Bottle by Eco Vessel which was sent to me by my friends at The Glass Baby Bottle.  This is my new favorite thing.  It’s stainless steel, which is what I loved about our Klean Kanteens. But this is a double-walled bottle, so it stays cooler longer. The straw top has a flip close mechanism to prevent leaks, which happens sometimes with the sport’s top on the KK. It looks cool and much more “grown-up”. My son is 6 now and does not want everything to look like a “sippy cup for babies”.  The plastic elements are BPA Free and made of recycled materials.

I really love knowing I sent my son’s drink for the day in an insulated bottle so that he can have a cool drink when he needs it.  It fits perfectly in the side pocket of his backpack.  It comes in 3 colors… Purple Butterfly, Dark Blue, and Silver (which we have… it’s a neat shade of silver too).

Eco Vessel also makes insulated sippy cups in Pink, Blue, and Silver which work with the Avent sippy adaptors like the Klean Kanteen does. I wish the handles were adjustable but I love the insulated feature most of all.
