stainless water bottles + giveaway.

October 16, 2009

hydrasip

Friends of ours just started a business making water bottles. Concerned with the environment, BPA leaching, and the recent negative press about aluminum bottles, three moms got together and created HydraSip…stainless steel bottles with BPA free tops {you get two lids with every bottle}. It’s hard to tell from the picture just how cool these bottles are…I love their ergonomic shape…they really are nice to hold! Ice water will stay cold forever in the double-walled bottles, and not sweat either…nice!

The gals at HydraSip gave me a pink double-wall bottle to give to one of my blog readers. It’s sitting on my desk just waiting for one of you! I’ll choose a winner after noon central time Friday, October 24, so enter before then!

So, if you want a chance to win a bottle, leave me a message below. For an extra entry, tweet about the giveaway, and make sure you let me know about it in the comments!

Make sure to check out the Hydra Sip website too…they have 3 colors to choose from, and you can order online.

Have a fun weekend!

Yikes! How did Monday meld into Wednesday so quickly?!! Sorry I didn’t post the winner on time! According to my random integer generator, Kat is the winner of the book! I had to check out her site too…it’s called Paul and Kat, and they have some really cute buttons! So, congratulations, and I hope the book lends itself to some super craftiness!
