Quenching a Stylish Thirst earthlustbottle

Wherever you go with your kids, from hiking a trail to the line at the post office, the inevitable words “I’m thirsty” will come. And you’re now trained to carry a bottle of water in your tote or stroller compartment at all times.

Earthlust is a San Francisco company that gets it. If you’re going to have a water bottle on hand, right along with the diapers and the cell phone, there’s no reason to keep buying plastic bottles that literally take 700 years to begin composting. Earthlust’s handmade bottles are made from high quality, food-grade stainless steel, and each time you reuse one, refilling it with your own fresh water, you’ll help eliminate waste, one sip at a time.

If you think that’s sexy, check out the custom made, limited edition designs, with nature-inspired modern motifs and created with non-toxic paints. Sizes are available in 1 Liter, 20 oz, and 13 oz stainless steel bottles and insulated mugs, and start at about $16. You can order up Earthlust products online at earthlust.com, or punch your zipcode into the website’s Where to Buysection to find a retailer near you. Drink it up.
