thanks so much for the chance at the giveaway! I really like the OM thermos. I love that you could have something leakproof to carry liquids to work. yeah!

It's tough, staying hydrated and caffeinated in an eco-unfriendly world. Too easy it is to grab a plastic disposable water bottle or a takeaway coffee cup and paper sleeve. Awesome Canadian company OtterBottle has been trying to change that, one green consumer at a time. They originally introduced a snazzy line of reusable water bottles in fantastic, funky designs. Now they've gone a step further: They're eco-fying your coffee cup and lunch break by introducing a gorgeous new line of insulated food and drink containers, with stylish insulated lunch totes to carry it all in.

All of the new pieces are available in a range of colours and patterns to suit your most fussy whims. OtterBottle was kind enough to let me try out all three pieces, and they are super nice and very practical.

The 350 ml container is perfect for a hot lunch of soup or chili, with a wide lid that screws on and off easily and securely.

The lunch bag is roomy, stylish, easy to carry and secure with a zipper across the top to keep your yummies safe inside.

ecochick's favourite, though, is the 500 ml insulated drink container, which has become the new Caffe Latte mug of choice at casa ecochick - perfectly sized for a grande latte and with a screw-off cap to reveal the drink nozzle, it's perfect to use too. There's even an elasticized clip to keep the cap attached to the bottle while you're drinking - smart! My coffee stays toasty warm for literally hours - this would keep you going all morning, no problem. For a busy mom whose coffee is usually refrigerator-cold by the time I get to drink it, this is nirvana.

Oh, you say! How I'd like to try one of those out! Well, you're in luck. I have a 500 ml Insulated Drink bottle to give away to one of you lucky folk. Just head on over to OtterBottle and check out the site and tell me what your favourite OtterBottle product is in the comments before Wednesday, November 3. Make sure you leave me your email address - you can't get the bottle if I can't contact you. Good luck!

The insulated 350 ml containers caught my eye. I've been looking for something exactly like this!

I'm pretty sure that I want everything that has the purple background with the white dragonfly. But the 500ml thermos is what I'd want the most. I've been looking for something that will hold my hot drink and not spill/leak on the bus.

I love the 750 purple dragonfly design. I like the range of designs they have, stylish and not just for kids!

Love everything in the purple dragon fly design and the red design but if I can to pick just one, I'd say the 500ml thermos would be my fav. I've been looking for one and all the others I've seen are either the wrong size or just plain fugly.

i am a sucker for all things nature, so the dragonfly and owl designs really appeal to me. but what i like most about otterbottle is that they donate money to the david suzuki foundation for every product sold. thats classy!

Wow, I just love all of it. If I have to pick a favorite, it's the lunch tote. I like the black/white flower one the most. These would make great gifts!

How I love floral design. I even customized the decals of my car into a Hawaiian like doodles. I don't know I just love seeing flowers everywhere.
