Ridding my home of all of our plastic water bottles of questionable safety felt good, but then I realize- duh-I needed some water bottles. Enter I Love Obento‘s adorably decorated aluminum bottles. How adorable? My favorite for the kids has a tiny elephant happily flying an airplane through the clouds with the Jiji & Peren bunnies a close second.
For a few extra dollars, go for the insulated bottles that have a stainless steel interior to keep the cold drink inside cold. Tuck a filled bottle in their lunch boxes before school, and their drink of choice will still be chilly at lunch. The drink will also taste great thanks to a special coating that prevents the taste of the apple juice of Monday sticking around when you fill it with spring water on Tuesday. Plastic water bottles? I’ll hardly miss them. –Christina
