Giveaway & Review: "WaterWeek Kids" Reusable Bottles by Reduce [CLOSED]

As I have mentioned in the past, I have been looking for easy ways to teach our kindergartner to be a little more green. We already have reusable snack containers and just added a water filtration system to our kitchen, so these BPA free WaterWeek Kids reusable bottles seem like a logical next step.

Since our son needs to take a snack to school everyday, this set of bottles is perfect because there is one for each school day. We chose the boy's set to try out, but there are also a girl's set and a sports themed set available.


What I thought about these WaterWeek Kids bottles:

1) My initial concern about drinking from reusable bottles is whether they will give off a chemical or plastic taste when my son drinks from them. I am happy to report that he did not detect any taste from the bottle and he is pretty picky about taste. He even pointed out the difference the first day when I tried to give him filtered water instead of spring water.



2) I very much like that this set comes with a tray. It makes it very easy to store neatly, as well as easy to notice when there is a bottle unaccounted for.

3) I like that the tops screw on just as they do on a regular water bottle. This is what my son was use to, so it's good that he can go a little greener without making a huge change. We use to buy him the short Poland Spring Pods and these WaterWeek Kids bottles fit just as well into his snack cube.


4) My son very much likes all the bold designs. Although it is a little ominous, his favorite is the red one with the skull and crossbones. He calls it his pirate bottle.

5) We've washed these bottles in the dishwasher on the top rack many times. We put the caps in a basket to keep them safe while being washed. We have not had any problems with the bottles warping or the designs wearing off the outside.


These WaterWeek Kids bottles have not only been great for my son to take to school, but he uses them at home as well. He always keeps a bottle by his bed and one handy while he is playing. I am even thinking about getting a set of full size WaterWeek bottles for use around the house.
