I know you guys are gonna go nuts on this one because every time I have one to give away you guys rock my blog! So, here we are again, offering another Sodastream for my New Year New You Giveaway Package Event I am so excited for you guys because whoever wins this total package is gonna have some awesome prizes. The Event starts on January 7th and ends on the 20th. Good Luck Everyone!
I have been doing my best all year to bring you good quality products and I have tried to make my packages worth your time to come and hang out with me for a little while. So, in a way, this is also my way of saying THANKS! to a great bunch of loyal readers who come back week after week and I wish I could hand each and every one of you the same package but we all know that would be impossible.  I wish I could always bring you great things to win but at least I am able to do so every once in awhile. I wish everyone the very best of luck in owing their very own Soda Stream!
Here is what is in the Sodastream Fountain Jet Soda Lover's Start-Up Kit ($99.95):

This package includes:
  • Fountain Jet – winner’s choice of color (black/silver, red/silver or white)
    - 1 carbonating bottle, reusable for up to 3 years
    - Reusable carbonator to fizz up to 60L of soda
    - Variety 6-pack of popular sample-size flavors
    - 3 full-sized flavor

The Fountain Jet Home Soda Maker comes in either White or Silver/Black. You will also get to choose 3 of your flavors in addition to the Sodamix Variety Pack that will have 6 flavors. Making carbonated water and soft drinks is simple! Turn tap water into sparkling water in under 30 seconds, with no clean-up. Enjoy the freshness and convenience of homemade soda and protect the environment at the same time.

No heavy bottles to carry, store at home or throw away. Fizz to your taste and add the flavor of your choice to make your favorite drink. Simple to clean and reuse. With a variety of colors and silhouettes, you'll be sure to find a soda maker to match with any decor.

You can also either replenish your supplies either thru the website or thru their online store or you can go to one of the many retailers that carry their products. Just got to the Store Locator and you will find them in just about all of the home products stores. I know they are at Bed Bath & Beyond and I have also seen them at Macy's but you will see the complete list when you get there.

I know you and your family will find flavors that you all like or can take turns making as there are 60 flavors to choose from! You can also now get Country Time and Crystal Light now, too! Oh wow, I just took a look and they have also added a whole new line of Green Tea flavors that you can make also! You can also get 2 flavors of their version of Red Bull, the energy drink. They have come a long way since they first introduced us to these great machines.

Lastly, I wanted to share with you how Sodastream helps to contribute to the recycling effort with their products:

How Does SodaStream Help the Environment?
SodaStream is an "Active Green" product, meaning that consumers are actively reducing their CO2 footprint every time they make soda or sparkling water at home instead of buying it from the store. The more the system is used on a daily basis, the more CO2 footprint the user actively saves. (This differs from "Passive Green" products, which use green-friendly production processes, but their products are not inherently helping the consumers save on their daily footprint.)

Because SodaStream uses water straight from the tap, the system makes traditional store-bought beverage bottles obsolete. That means less plastic manufactured, less plastic waste is created, and fewer bottled beverages must be transported from manufacturers to distributors to stores to homes.

Globally, 206 billion liters of bottled water were consumed in 2008 (Zenith International Global Bottled Water Report, 2008). The energy required to make water bottles in the US only, is equivalent to 17 million barrels of oil (Container Recycling Institute, 2002).

According to the US Recycling Institute, more than 80% of bottles in the US do not get recycled and end up in landfills. Also, an estimated 4.7 million tons of greenhouse gas emissions were produced in the process of replacing the 134 billion bottles and cans not recycled in 2005.

Using your own home carbonation system means:

•Less packaging waste from cans and bottles.
•Less pollution caused by transport of bottled beverages.

One SodaStream carbonator makes 60 or 110 liters, equivalent to 170 or 310 aluminum cans! When empty, the carbonator is refilled and reused, ready to make more fizzy and tasty soda whenever you want it.

I tried some soda from a soda stream at Costco and it was great! I would love to get one and make my own combinations with sliced fruit!

I have wanted one of these so badly. I drink so much Pepsi that cost wise this would be great for me to have. Thanks for another chance Mary and the review.

I love products that are good for the environment and help you save money - win-win! Looks like they have just about every flavor you could think of!

Mer said...

I didn't realize so many flavor options were available. I'd love to try this--my family drinks quite a bit of soda, and I'd like to both save money and the environment.

My family has been considering a Soda Stream lately. I had no idea they offered Crystal Light now, thanks for the informational review.

Tammy Allgood-Hemmerling said...

I actually own a SodaStream system and my family LOVES it! My 5 year old son thinks it's so fun to make his own soda and I like that I can control how much fizz and syrup is in it! Thanks for the review!
