I’ve gotten a little behind on reviews, so you’ll see a few of them here this week. I do hope reviews are helpful to you in that the goal is to let you know about products that I believe are a good value and good for the environment. For more information about my review policy, just click on the link.
A while back Ecousable contacted me to see if I’d be interested in trying out their stainless steel water bottles. I was recently livid disappointed with SIGG’s failure to disclose that their bottle liners contained BPA and was happy to give a new brand a try.
Bottom line: I’m in love.
All Ecousable bottles are made of 304 food grade stainless steel and the tops and sports caps contain NO BPA. One of my favorite features is the grippy black mat on the bottom of each bottle (my husband really liked this feature, too). These are made of non-toxic EVA.
The Ecousable bottles are lighter in weight than my Kleen Kanteen and that is a positive feature, in my opinion. They come in a variety of attractive designs. You can also order Water Wrapz in a large number of prints to personalize your bottle or to keep your hands from getting cold against the stainless steel. The company will provide one free Water Wrapz with the purchase of each bottle. If there’s one draw-back to these bottles, it’s probably the Water Wrapz. They look neat, but aren’t really wide enough to grip. My kids (aged 4), however, think the Water Wrapz are extremely cool.
Speaking of cool, Ecousable also carries “The world’s first BPA Free stainless steel filtered water bottle,” the Ech20. The filter is in the top and “removes up to 99.99% of pollutants for up to 100 gallons of great tasting filtered water.” The Ech2o also received excellent reviews from The Alternative Consumer and Lighter Footstep.
The best thing I can suggest is to visit the Ecousable website and check them out for yourself. I think you’ll be glad you did.

Giveaway: I am giving away 2 Ecousable bottles to one lucky commenter.

I’ll use a random number generator to select a winner on Friday, November 20.
