Win a 20 oz Aluminum Water bottle!
I love to drink water, unfortunately I DON'T love to drink water from plastic cups that much because I swear I can taste the plastic in the water. Plus, plastic cups don't keep the water cold for very long so I am constantly getting up to get a fresh cup.
Here in Maine, we recycle plastic bottles so I do buy bottled water but it can be an expensive habit, and again we have the plastic factor come into play. I haven't drank water from the tap in quite a long time-even though it does have obvious benefits. The reason is simple, one day I went to the tap to get some water and it had a fishy odor. Phew! That was enough to turn me away-however, at my workplace we have a water cooler filtering tap water and it isn't bad at all. The Water District has been tearing up pipes in our area and the filtered water at work still tastes great. But I have realized that I need a nice water bottle-not one of those plastic ones that gets smelly after a few washes or already stinks when you first open it. So when I saw that Avon Liiv Botanicals had a 20 oz aluminum water bottle on sale, I knew I had to buy it.
And lucky for you all, I happened to get an extra. It even has a neat design on it, which is pretty darn cool. They only had the 20 oz size, but that is perfect for me. I haven't used it yet, since I just got it only yesterday-however I was a little disappointed to see the made in China label and sincerely hope that it is a great water bottle.
