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
