This item is one of my latest discoveries from the Green Festival in NYC yesterday. It’s called “Wherever Water” made by Full Circle Home. The brand is new to me and only five years in the works, but it looks like their products are going to be a staple in my home from now on. They create home goods that are economical, ergonomical, sustainable, and functional.
If you ask me, there can never be too many options when it comes to cleverly designed household items that are easy on the environment. The name “Full Circle” says it all. Here’s how they explain it: a product’s life cycle should be cyclical not linear with materials that come from the earth, have long, functional lives, and then return to the earth from where they came—not in a landfill. Amen to that philosophy!
Aside from sending me down an eco-friendly dream trip, this glass water bottle is all kinds of user-friendly too. Check out the hourglass shape that’s easy to grip (it’s designed to drop on its soft base or lid, not the glass). And let’s not neglect the handy lemon reamer that comes off easily when you’re done juicing. Anyone else get excited about one less kitchen device to dig up from the caverns and then wash? Plus all the parts are dishwasher safe, so you can forget about washing it altogether.
By now, you’ve probably stumbled across the many posts about how drinking lemon water detoxifies the liver and gall bladder, offering the optimum cleanse for many people first thing in the morning. It also helps balance the taste of sour in our diets, a flavor that’s often sorely missing from the salty-sweet treadmill of the typical North American diet.
The glass container holds 20 oz. of hydration to get you well on your way to drinking your daily dose.
I’d say this bottle makes for one edible, thirst-quenching delight—especially when you’re on the go early in the a.m. (Though I can’t speak highly enough of taking time to leisurely sip your morning drink and enjoy a few tranquil moments before setting off on your day. That’s something I don’t do often enough.)
The Wherever Water bottle retails for $20 and can be found at these stores. The Full Circle Home shop is due to launch in spring/summer 2014, so any minute now you’ll be able to buy directly from their website.
Anyone else get excited about finding new gadgets like these? Have you discovered anything groovy lately?
