Carry your own water: OtterBottle giveaway!

Congratulations to Alyjane who  said..."I love that some money goes to teh David Suzuki foundation and they that they look great, but I have to say, the fact that they are dishwasher safe is my favorite feature!!" You're getting an OtterBottle!

And while we're talking about water... remember OtterBottle?  Those awesome, uber-useful bottles from a Canadian company that come in most excellent, gorgeous designs? The ones with two lids - a screw cap and a sports top? The BPA-free ones, that are dishwasher safe?  The ones ranging in size from 500 ml to 1 l? The ones where a contribution will be made to the David Suzuki Foundation with every bottle sold? Yeah, I thought you remembered them. Well, I have a brand new OtterBottle right here to give away to a lucky reader.

Just head on over to the OtterBottle website and take a peek around. Then come back here and tell me your favourite thing about OtterBottles in the comments by Wednesday, April 28. The bottle will be given away by random draw and the recipient will be contacted via e-mail, so ensure you leave me a way to contact you. And, good luck!

Besides all the wonderful environmental & health benefits, and the huge selection of beautiful chic designs...I love the wonderful story that comes along with Otterbottles! Go Shannon! :-)

My favorite part is that they have a dragonfly design. I collect dragonflies and have been looking for a water bottle with one on it. Stylish and environmentally conscious. Win - win!

Between the cool designs and the great donations, how does one decide which is best? Actually, I like that they are dishwasher safe. I'm so tired of washing bottles by hand.

Ally said...

I love that this company was founded by an at-home mom entrepreneur. Such an inspiration for the rest of us!

These look fantastic - I love the different designs, the fact that they come in different sizes (my kids need bigger ones now) and that they are dishwasher safe!!

i always appreciate a water bottle with a wide opening... so much easier to fill with ice when i'm at work... where i, coincidentally, just left my current Otterbottle... hoping it's still there when i go back on Friday...

I love that these come with two lids, depending on what kind of mood I'm in & what I'm doing. Also, love that they're dishwasher safe. I'm hesitant to put my enameled bottles in the dishwasher, and always having to pull out the bottle brush to clean is a downer!

Nancy said...

What's not to like? Cool designs, dishwasher friendly, two lids, suppporting a good cause!

Jessica said...

I love that OtterBottle is a Canadian company, who really seems to care about the environment. And I really love all the awesome designs!

Great styles and the company has a great environmental policy. Also love the variety of size options.

Funky designs, dishwasher safe, named after a hilarious semi-aquatic animal? What's not to love? Not crazy about it being manufactured in China, but hey, at least they're not headed for a landfill! Sadly, they are not available in my area and I don't use credit cards, so this is my only hope for getting one :)

I love that they are Canadian and have unique and interesting designs.

I love the wide opening so you can put ice in it easily. And that it comes with 2 lids in case you lose one ;)

My favorite part of these bottles is that they are from Canada! They don't have to be shipped from over seas like many other bottles!

Gosh, I LOVE the designs. This is so much more hip than drinking water out of a plain old plastic bottle...and obviously way better for the earth. Who said eco-friendly had to be frumpy?

Veronica said...

Their designs are gorgeous and I love that they're dishwasher safe. Plus, being made in Canada, how can you go wrong?!

A donation to the Suzuki foundation with every bottle? I LOVE that! (And they're completely gorgeous. Thanks for introducing me to these. Love 'em!

Trish said...

I like that the bottles are dishwasher safe. Less work for me!

Love the designs and the dishwasher safe stainless steel.

However, while a Canadian company, I am still uncomfortable with them being made in China, a country with a not so great recent track record for quality issues. Besides, these bottles have travelled an awfully long way in the manufacturing process.

Andrea said...

I love the designs but I also love that they come in a variety of sizes!

Mama said...

Stylish and environmentally-friendly!

I like the widemouth design. It makes it easy to clean and also easy to add ice cubes to my drink.

Terra said...

I love the name and the fact that it is a Canadian company and that it allows the founder to stay at home with her kids.

Sarah said...

Those are the nicest designs I have seen in water bottles ever. Although these are still manufactured in China (such is life and reality), I do like that the company itself is Canadian.

Kimberley B said...

Canadian made, 4 sizes and some really great designs! What's not to like!!

erikpaul said...

These are fantastic! Love the 1L size. Vines is my fav.

Food According To Karen said...

WOW! The designs are fabulous. I love supporting companies that practice what they preach, and Otterbottles does exactly that by contributing to the David Suzuki Foundation with each bottle sold.
Fabulous!

Amy said...

Super cute styles! And I loved reading the story behind Otterbottles.

Whatever's Cool With Me said...

I love that these are dishwasher-safe! It's easier to clean and uses far less water.

I love these OtterBottles, but you know what they don't offer is a stainless steel, BPA free baby bottle. I've been looking for an alternative to plastic and glass baby bottles and I finally found Eco-Baba.com which offers pure, FDA approved, no inside lining or outside paint/lacquer bottles for my baby. I'm so glad that I found them and thought that I would like to share so that others may be happy knowing that there's an alternative to plastic and glass baby bottles.
