I know, I'm making up words. It's okay. Better grammar can be next year's resolution.
For now, one thing (on a long list) I'm focusing on is reducing plastic in our lives. That's no easy accomplishment with a house full of kids, and I am certainly not going to spirit away kid-essentials, like Legos or Barbies. Those pesky water bottles, however, are now banished, as are sippy cups and miscellaneous plastic containers from too many sources that have multiplied over the years. Gone.
Klean Kanteen is my new love. These stainless steel bottles come in a range of colors. They offer a few different tops. We like the sports cap just fine. It's made of non-leaching polypropylene (yes, a little plastic, but a safe and reusable version). If your kids are younger, check out the sippy spout. Or, if you really want to go all out, you can get a stainless steel cap and your drink will never touch plastic at all.
Now if I could just figure out how to get rid of the other 50 million pieces of plastic in the house...
Or see where they are carried locally.
