Serve your kids a better drink in a better drink box

on Monday, June 23rd, 2014
Posted in: Home, Kitchen, News

Juice boxes are convenient for packing in a child’s lunch or for taking along on trips, but what they contain probably isn’t your first pick for feeding to your child.  Those juice boxes often contain beverages that are more sugar than anything else, so they aren’t nutritious.  Those flimsy cardboard boxes that can seem likeRead More…

KOR Nava hydration vessel water bottle review

on Friday, March 21st, 2014

We all know that we should be drinking more water, but it can be tough to accomplish that task when your tap water tastes like…well, tap water. I don’t know about the rest of you, but I prefer the taste of bottled water over tap water, which can often have a funky flavor. Bottled waterRead More…


Eau Good water bottle makes tap water taste like bottled water

on Monday, October 28th, 2013

I like the taste of bottled water much more than the taste of the water that comes out of a tap. But buying bottled water is both expensive and wasteful due to all the plastic. Enter the Eau Good water bottle designed by European design firm Black and Blum. The Eau Good is a BPARead More…

I know that people have different ideas about how much water we should get in a day, but we can all agree that we all need to drink water.  If you’re like me and forget to drink enough water during the day because you get distracted by what you’re doing, you could probably need aRead More…

Posted in: Home, Kitchen, Reviews

We all know that to stay hydrated, we should be drinking at least 8 glasses of water a day. The only thing is though, that water is… well… boring. My beverage of choice used to be Diet Coke, but I was able to wean myself off of it by switching over to ice tea. IRead More…


EQUA CMYK Drop bottle review

on Thursday, June 20th, 2013

Chances are high that you drink water more than any other beverage. Considering that water is the number one consumed beverage in the world, it was an easy guess. A tougher question to answer is how do you carry / store your drinking water? Do you use a thermos, plastic bottles, paper cups or somethingRead More…

Clean Bottle The Square water bottle review

I work in a corporate office (Cummins Inc.) with 100’s of other people. It was once common to see people carrying around soft drink bottles to and from their meetings.

CamelBak Groove Insulated

CamelBak Groove Insulated 0.6L Filtration Bottle Review

By: Mark Adkins
on Saturday, April 14th, 2012

I’m a big believer in using refillable water bottles to stay hydrated, lose weight, be environmentally conscious, and so on, so we usually have half a dozen 32oz. wide-mouth bottles in the fridge. I’ve been thinking about upgrading my system though.  Our local water is a little hard (but still pretty tasty), but about once a monthRead More…

Posted in: News, Outdoor Gear

As a long distance runner, I always take a drink out with me when running, especially as I know that I should be well hydrated before, during and afterwards.  I’ve tried many different types of drinks bottles, from straight forward sports bottles, to the more specially designed running varieties.  However, regardless of which bottle I use, after aRead More…
