Fantastic Plastic?

Having spent Easter in a small slice of wilderness where our only shower was the river, it breaks my heart to see water like this in Sydney's waterways so please excuse the following soap box rant!

Bottled water....... why? We have some of the best quality tap water in the world in Sydney. Nothing like the water that comes out of the tap water in London which supposedly has been through your body 7 times by the time you drink it . I'm all for recycling but it does taste revolting!

In Australia there is no real excuse. You don't have to wait for 'Clean up Australia day' to make a difference either. You can take a few steps, however teeny and your kids will learn by example.

Water is obviously the most healthy drink. Good for your skin, weight, teeth, wallet . Any model will boast how much water they drink.  Kids have to have water bottles pretty much everywhere they go . School. Sport. Excursions. I have learnt by trial and error what I find works the best.
The Sistema company do a great range of bottles and you can find them in the supermarket. None of the nasty toxic plastics and a NZ company that seems to be happily competing with China and doing a good job.

Their drinking bottles have a screw valve at the top. They don't leak.They don't go mouldy like the straw top ones. You can screw off the top bit of the bottle and sterilise it in the dishwasher . I put mine in the cutlery basket so they don't go wandering. You can fill them and put them in the freezer overnight so they can act as an icepack for lunchboxes in summer.
None of this is hard and it would make such a difference.
