We’re breaking up. I’ve had enough. I’m tired of your unsightly shape every morning. I’m drained by the never ending piles of clutter. I’m weary of lugging you around, you weigh down my shopping cart. You block my access, and I’m over. It’s done.
Here’s my rant
Thank you to Milton the dog for making his cameo in my rant… bonus points to you if you spotted him.

No Bottle Waste with Soda Stream
The Soda Stream system comes with reusable bottles, in a variety of shapes and materials. It’s easy to rinse them after use and fill with cold tap water for your next bubbly beverage. I have even enjoyed a few bubbles on the road taking my creations with me in mason jars & stainless steel travel mugs.
One of the things that totally blew my mind is the SodaStream cage I found in Pinterest. I’m a very visual person. I relate best when I can see it, look at it, and use it. So to me, these installations are actually brilliant, and a perfect way to raise awareness about the disposable nature of cans and bottles.
1 gas carbonator can actually replace over 2000 bottles. An average family goes through 6500+ bottles & cans a year. As my family seems to be “bottle a-holics” I’m guessing our stat on that one would be much higher. So 3 or 4 SodaStream gas cannisters would actually replace that exhibit! Best of all, they are recyclable. Even at my small town Walmart, I found you could exchange the carbonators at the Customer Service Desk.
