After I wrote Stainless Steel Water Bottle: Smackdown, comparing and contrasting the top selling Stainless Steel water bottles on the market, New Wave Enviro Products contacted me and sent me some products to review. I love water bottles that are reusable and that are made from stainless steel. Anytime I can forgo plastic and eliminate the need to buy and dispose of consumables — like plastic drink bottles — I’m happy. That’s why I love reusable water bottles so much.
New Wave Enviro Stainless Steel Water Bottle 40 Ounces
I’ve been wanting a 40 ounce stainless steel water bottle for months. But I couldn’t find a way to justify shelling out for Klean Kanteen’s 40 ounce bottle, when I had two perfectly good 18 and 27 ounce bottles that would do just fine. (And I didn’t know New Wave Enviro made a 40 ounce bottle until researching for the Smackdown post.)
Anyhow, New Wave Enviro was kind enough to sent me their 40 ounces stainless steel water bottle to give it a spin. I’ve been using it for a couple of weeks and honestly, I love it. 40 ounces is a perfect size for extended car rides, bike trips, hikes, or any sort of sporting event. When I visit the southwest in the heat of the summer, you can bet I will be bringing and using this water bottle and taking it with me anytime I step outside.
In comparison to a Klean Kanteen, there is really no difference except in price and in caps. The New Wave Enviro bottles are significantly less expensive. However, you won’t get the same cap options that you do with a Klean Kanteen (such as flat top, etc.) And the New Wave Enviro Stainless Steel Water Bottle 40 ounces ships with a stainless steel top, not the plastic top that is worse for the environment.
Another option is fruit infused water bottles. This has become a big trend as consumers who have stopped buying disposable plastic water bottles are now wanting more flavor in their water.
New Wave Enviro Stainless Steel Food Container
About 2 years ago we ditched our plastic Tupperware in favor of glass/Pyrex. (A good variety set is this 18 piece Pyrex set.) We felt that warming up food in plastics – which can leach chemicals and melt at hot temperatures wasn’t worth any potential health risks. The only problem I’ve found with glass is that it is extremely heavy to carry on a daily commute to work. But, it never occurred to me that there was an alternative.
Another of the New Wave Enviro Products is the Stainless Steel Food Container. While you can’t heat it up, it’s great for salads, fruit, sandwiches, or any other dry foods. I will definitely be using this frequently. Another brand I use is Lunchbots. The stainless steel lunch containers I have from this line are perfect for packing my kids’ school lunches.
New Wave Enviro Bamboo Lunch Bag
Another creative lunchware piece is the Bamboo Lunch Bag. Bamboo is lightweight and sustainable. And the bag is surprisingly soft. This is my go-to lunch bag.
Whenever you can, work toward eliminating plastic and opting for reusable products. New Wave Enviro products makes it easy to use reusable products. You will be doing yourself, as well as our earth, a huge favor.
