Teen Green: Make Your Own Seltzer

12 02 2010

Being full-fledged seltzer-lovers, my family has always had a cabinet full of bottles.  Up until a few months ago, we didn’t know of any other options besides bottled seltzer.  Then we discovered Sodastream.  After buying the “Pure” model in the Stainless-Steel color, three PET BPA-free compatible bottles, and two carbonators, we were good to go.

The way that Sodastream works is actually pretty simple.  When you “run out of gas” in your carbonator, you can either exchange it for a new one at a participating retailer (here are some in Brooklyn) or send it back to Sodastream and you’ll receive a  new one via mail soon afterwards (or you can just swap out the old one for a new one at the Co-Op).

So far, after having had it for about a year, we’ve only used up two carbonators and as a result have saved a ton of money.  We drink at least a bottle per day, and still each carbonator has lasted us months and months!

One of the best things about it is that you can customize how bubbly the seltzer is: you simply choose how many pumps of gas you do based on how strong you want it to end up.  It’s also great to know that you’re being so efficient by not purchasing hundreds of plastic bottles per year.

In all, I could not recommend this more.  It truly has proved itself to be one of the most useful products that we own.  If you and your family are seltzer drinkers, you’ll love this!
