Recently, I drank water out of Orange County’s only natural lake and didn’t get so much as an upset stomach. Sure, the water was a little murky going into my bottle, but when I took a sip it came out clear and tasted great! How did this incredible transformation occur? The secret to making the water both tasty and safe to drink is in the Ionic-Adsorption Micro-Filtration System of my new Ech2o Water Bottle.
Ever since we started hiking with our kids and I was forced to lug around enough water for all of us to drink, I had been dreaming of a portable water filtration system. In the past, everything I had seen in stores was either too complex or out of my price range. Then, I stumbled upon Get The Bottle.com. The website promised a reasonably priced water bottle (only $39.99) could filter 100 gallons of water from any non-saltwater source and provide the drinker with clean, fresh tasting water each and every time. My curiosity had officially been sparked.
Over the next 8 weeks, I brought my bottle everywhere: hikes, sporting events, airports, Disneyland, and errands around town. I was amazed that no matter how nasty the water may have looked or tasted before filtration, it always tasted clean and fresh when it went through the Ech2O.
In addition to having great tasting water, I also had a clear conscience. I have always been a water snob and have been known to turn my nose up at the tap. With the Ech2O, I no longer needed to create so much waste by drinking bottled water. Even though I had always recycled my plastic water bottles in the past, I always felt guilty about consuming so much plastic. The bottle is 304 food grade stainless steel which is non-leaching, BPA-free, and taste-neutral In addition to being eco-friendly, it is also wallet-friendly. When I think about how much money I have saved since I stopped drinking bottled water and started using the Ech2O , I know for a fact that this bottle more than pays for itself. The bottle filters up to 100 gallons of water and replaces 757 half-liter bottles! Once the filter stops working (usually around 6 months of use), all you have to do is pop in another filter and you are good to go!
The only criticism I have of the bottle is that when the water gets low, sometimes it doesn’t make it up into the straw and I have to refill sooner than I would like to. That being said, the benefits far outway any extra trips to the sink I might have to make. Alright, I have gushed enough about the water bottle, now lets get to the good stuff: the giveaway!
