Soda Siphons are an “Active Green” product, meaning that consumers are actively reducing their CO2 footprint every time they make soda or sparkling water at home instead of buying it from the store. The more the system is used on a daily basis, the more CO2 footprint the user actively saves.
Because soda siphons use water straight from the tap, it makes traditional store bought beverage bottles obsolete. That means less plastic manufactured, less plastic waste is created, and fewer bottled beverages must be transported from manufacturers to distributors to stores to homes. Globally, 206 billion liters of bottled water were consumed in 2008 (Zenith International Global Bottled Water Report, 2008). The energy required to make water bottles in the US only, is equivalent to 17 million barrels of oil (Container Recycling Institute, 2002).
According to the US Recycling Institute, more than 80% of bottles in the US do not get recycled and end up in landfills. Also, an estimated 4.7 million tons of greenhouse gas emissions were produced in the process of replacing the 134 billion bottles and cans not recycled in 2005.
Water bottles play a huge role in American culture, but they shouldn’t. We have the opportunity to offset the environmental damage numbers such as these bring. Unlike the tragedy in the gulf, we can do something about this! Soda siphons are a great solution and the flavors are endless! with an endless amount of syrups, your mixture is your own.
Summer Solstice was yesterday, which means if you haven’t already its time to gear up for summer weather. The Mayo Clinic has posted a great article on water intake and how much you should drink – with a diagram of functions of water in the body. Check out the link here, and lets get drinking (water)!
We know how boring that might sound, but it doesn’t have to be! Its always a good idea to have a Classic Glass soda siphon around for a cold and refreshing bubbly drink – ready when you need it.
Have fun this summer with this special soda making treat. Add your own syrups or just some fresh squeezed lemons and limes. Its a great alternative to unhealthy soft drinks and limits intakes of additives and sugars, while keeping everyone safely hydrated.
The Classic Glass siphon works with 8 gram C02 cartridges, and is an easier alternative to carrying around soda water bottles. Make cocktails, sodas and juices, and look totally cool while doing it!
