Single-serving soft drinks are the bane of the recycling bin. Even if you only splurge on soda or bottled sparkling water once in a while, you've still got to lug the heavy containers from the store to your pantry, and then out to the recycling bin when they're empty.
SodaStream is a revolutionary at-home system for making your own flavored soft drinks and carbonated water that will save you time, money, and eliminate the number of containers you send to the recycling center.
Coolest Things About SodaStream: After your initial purchase of the machine, you can enjoy seltzer and sparkling water in reusable 1-liter bottles for just $.20 per liter and flavored sodas for about $.25 per can. Oh, and did we mention that you'd be making it in reusable bottles and completely eliminate the need for cans?? Also, most of syrups for flavoring SodaStream contain only 9g of sugar, whereas conventional soda brands contain about 27g.
Perfect Gift Idea For: people who love the occasional soda but hate all the sugar, people who want to reduce their waste production, people who like to experiment with different flavors.
How You Can Get One: You can order through the SodaStream website, but if you want it in time for Christmas, search this list of local retailers that carry it.
