{Fall Into Green Giveaway Hop} Eco Vessel :: SUMMIT Insulated Straw Top Water Bottle Review & Giveaway {Ends 9/30} #FallGreen

 
Welcome to the Fall Into Green Giveaway Hop, hosted by Happy Mothering and Happy Green Mama through the Green Moms Network. Each participating blog is hosting a green or eco-friendly giveaway worth at least $25. You can find the list of participating blogs, along with grand prize information below my Rafflecopter entry form! But first, let me introduce you to my sponsor for this event!
Eco Vessel, based in Boulder, Colorado, offers a line of sustainable, reusable water bottles and accessories for adults and kids. While most are stainless steel, they also offer plastic and glass options as well. Either way, their products are free of lead, phthalates, BPA, and other harmful, leaching materials.

Although I'm quite fond of glass water bottles, my second choice is stainless steel. They're more durable than glass and much lighter in weight. That's why I ultimately decided to choose the SUMMIT Insulated Straw Top Bottle in the 17oz size to review.
The SUMMIT is made from 18/8 stainless steel and has no liners inside that could potentially leak or cause problems in the future. It's triple-insulated, thick walls make this bottle sweat-proof which means no watery mess. I love putting ice in mine so this is a major bonus for me. Also, because of the insulated walls, my water stays cold for hours. Apparently it can stay cold for up to 36 hours! It features an ergonomic design for easy holding, an easy one-handed flip spout with straws for drinking, and a carrying handle that makes it easy to twist off the top too. 

This bottle is technically supposed to be used with the included straws (it comes with two) that attach to the underside of the top. That way you don't need to tilt the bottle to drink. However, I've found that it works just as well without the straws, and I just tilt to drink just like any other water bottle. I think I prefer it this way too since the plastic straws won't be sitting in my water (although they are considered safe and free of harmful chemicals). Not too much water comes out at once through the spout, but it's quenching and makes me actually want to drink my water! Also, when the silicone spout is down, I've found it to be leak proof. This is great for my 3 1/2 year old who tends to tip over my water bottles on accident all the time! 

Overall I think the SUMMIT was designed very well, convenient, simple, sustainable, recyclable, safe and it's even pretty to look at! I think I've found my new favorite water bottle! The SUMMIT is also available in a 25oz size, and a similar style for kids called FROST that is a 13oz size. There are also lots of colors to choose from!
