We’ve been trying our hardest to “avoid the bummer life” in many different ways this past summer. One of our most self-satisfying methods has been with the Swobo “not a water bottle.” While this looks like an ordinary water bottle (despite Swobo’s insistence otherwise) it is not ordinary. This bottle is not only free of plastics that will leech into the bottle (causing an off-taste and/or other health problems) it is also biodegradable. That means one less way to contribute to the patches of plastic floating in ocean gyres everywhere. Additionally, they are made in the United States, which is just one more good reason to check them out.
