Photography Contest

28 01 2010

Jessi

We’d like to know where our customers take their Green Bottles™. Maybe you take yours camping or on long hikes. Maybe you bring them on a golf outing or to a sports event. Or you might keep them on your desk at work instead of a glass that could easily spill onto your computer. Maybe you have the youth size and your kids tote them around everywhere!

Whatever the case enter our new monthly photo contest by sending us your photos  of your Green Bottles™ in action. If your photo is selected we’ll post it on our front page and send you a free Green Bottle™. You can upload your pictures directly to our site or you can join our Flickr group and add them there.

You can submit as many pictures as you like. Since January is almost up we won’t be selecting a winner until February, which gives you plenty of time to take plenty of pictures!

Enjoy photographing your Green Bottle™!

Say “no way” to BPA!

24 08 2009

There has been some media attention recently regarding aluminum water bottles and their link to the chemical Bisphenol-A (BPA). BPA is an endocrine disruptor and can mimic the body’s own hormones, which may lead to negative health effects if it is ingested in high doses. You may be aware that the chemical BPA is commonly used in disposable plastic bottles, plastic sports bottles and can also be found in the liners of aluminum cans and bottles.

On August 19th, 2009, aluminum bottle manufacturers Sigg and Laken acknowledged that bottles manufactured by their company prior to August, 2008 were knowingly lined with an epoxy-resin containing the harmful chemical BPA. At Green Bottle™, we feel stainless steel is a much better option than aluminum for food related consumer goods.

The benefits of a stainless steel bottles far outweighs those of aluminum bottles. While the properties of both metals can be safe for consumer products, aluminum tends to transfer taste and smells when used for liquid storage. Because of this, our competitors use a plastic lining to reduce the absorption of taste and smell from certain liquids. Typically this lining is plastic which may contain chemicals like BPA that have shown to leech into food or liquids.

We would like to take this time to reassure you that every Green Bottle™ is made of 18/8 #304 food grade stainless steel and has ALWAYS been 100% BPA free as clearly stated on all our packaging.

At Green Bottle™, we have always offered full transparency and have marketed our consumer products with honesty and integrity. We have published our quality assurance tests to the public and continue to test our consumer products on a monthly basis due to our high standards.

Many other bottle companies are responding to the news linking Sigg and Laken to BPA by expressing their concern for the consumer and singing the praises of their product. While we also believe our brand is better for the consumer, we’d like to do something more to improve this unfortunate situation. We want to put a stainless steel Green Bottle™ in your hand.

Buy any Green Bottle™ from our Green Bottle™ store as a replacement for your Sigg (or any other aluminum or plastic bottles) and get one Green Bottle™ free. This offer is valid until September 22, 2009 or until we have given away 100,000 Green Bottles. When you place your order, please use Special Offer Code – B1G1.

Green Spring Cleaning

20 05 2009

Spring has sprung!  Unfortunately, along with spring also comes spring cleaning. This year, clean your home with products that are safe for the environment (and your wallet). It is not necessary to spend a lot of money on harsh, chemical cleaners. You can use simple, natural ingredients to make your home shine!

Three great ingredients to have on hand are lemons, baking soda and white vinegar.

Lemons are effective against many household bacteria. Baking soda is a great deodorizer and cleaner and wonderful for making a cleaning paste. Vinegar is a good grease cutter, mildew remover and all purpose cleaner.

-To easily clean your garbage disposal, cut half a lemon into pieces and run them through the disposal. The lemons will clean the disposal and leave your kitchen with a fresh scent!

-You can use household baking soda as a carpet deodorizer. Sprinkle it on your carpet before you vacuum for added freshness.

Do you have any natural cleaning tips you would like to share? Please leave them in the comments section. Thanks!

*Before applying any cleaning solutions, always spot test a small area if possible.
