We love mineral water. We love to drink it cold and plain. The bubbles add to the whole experience that flat tap water doesn't match. I don't drink soft drink. Howard will have a little cola now and again but that's all. But oh wow mineral water, we drink bottles of it.
So we bought a soda stream. Financially I think it won't be cheaper. If we only drank Perrier yes it would, we love Perrier by the way, but the homebrand tastes pretty good and is super cheap. We bought a kit with machine, CO2 canister and one litre bottle. We added a bottle of flavour for Howard and two half litre bottles for Howard to take to work and we are set.
The result: great tasting sparkling water, no salt to worry about and no more throw away bottles.
Cheers to a reduced footprint and guilt free mineral water consumption.
