CoolCanucks Blog Contest – Nalgene Grip-n-Gulp Bottles for Children Review & Giveaway!!CLOSED

Monday, May 31st, 2010

“Here at Nal­gene Out­door, we get a lot of mail from campers, hik­ers, and other active out­doors­peo­ple who love their NALGENE bot­tles. In fact, NALGENE Out­door Prod­ucts are rec­og­nized by explor­ers and adven­tur­ers around the globe.

How did these bot­tles get so pop­u­lar? Where do they come from?

How it all started…
Back in 1949, a Rochester, New York chemist named Emanuel Gold­berg devel­oped the first plas­tic pipette holder. Along with three work­ers, he began the Nalge Com­pany in a small build­ing at 625 South Good­man Street.

For years Gold­berg and his grow­ing team devel­oped the NALGENE line of state-of-the-art poly­eth­yl­ene lab­o­ra­to­rye­quip­ment: cen­trifuge bot­tles, fil­ter units, stor­age tanks.

Obvi­ously, it wasn’t the kind of stuff you toss into your back­pack for a week­end in the woods.

But there were rumors float­ing around … sto­ries about sci­en­tists tak­ing the smaller, more con­ve­nient bot­tles out of the lab and using them on hikes and excursions.

By the 1970s this “unof­fi­cial” use for NALGENE bot­tles caught the eye of Marsh Hyman (Pres­i­dent of the Nalge Com­pany in Rochester, New York).”

Nal­gene makes water bot­tles for ath­letes, hik­ers, bik­ers, and even chil­dren! This rep­utable com­pany is well known across the world and it is cer­tainly a name brand that every­one trusts!

I used to won­der why it seemed that every­one on the track had a Nal­gene bot­tle with them. Now that I have my own, I totally under­stand and can com­pletely relate as I was sent a really cool OTG — Spring Green — Every­day Bot­tle in Spring Green and love it so much!!

These bot­tles are extremely durable, BPA free (the new ones), don’t leak, and keep water or sports drinks tast­ing fresh. I’ve dropped my Nal­gene on rough rocks many times, but besides a few scratches it never has cracked or leaked!!

I was also sent some Nal­gene Grip-n-Gulp bot­tles for chil­dren to review, and they totally exceeded my expec­ta­tions!

Nal­gene Every­day Grip-N-Gulp Kids Water Bot­tle — BPA Free

•Side indents are easy for tiny hands to grasp.
•Easy clean spill proof cap. (View)
•Rub­ber­ized lid and smooth plas­tic mouth­piece make drink­ing com­fort­able.
•Supe­rior thread­ing on cup and lid is engi­neered to pre­vent spills.
•Won’t retain taste and odors.
•Tough & impact resis­tant.
•Bot­tle is made from Tri­tan copoly­ester that is man­u­fac­tured with­out BPA.
•Cup, lid, and remov­able sip­per valve are all top rack dish­washer safe
•Lid loop can be clipped to back­pack, dia­per bag, or stroller.
•Holds 12 oz.
Nal­gene Grip-N-Gulp water bot­tle for kids and tod­dlers!
Nal­gene con­tain­ers have stood up to some of the worlds most extreme con­di­tions.  The new Nal­gene Grip’n Gulp is tough enough to sur­vive being thrown from a mov­ing mini­van, spill proof enough to com­pel par­ents to blame the rug stains on the dog, and odor proof enough to allow left­over milk to go unde­tected under the couch for months. Most impor­tantly, its a great way for lit­tle kids to reach new heights.

My nieces used these all week­end at camp and they are beyond out­stand­ing!! In fact, my sister-in-law is in the midst of order­ing a bunch more of these as she said they are defi­nately a must-have and she just can­not live with­out them now!!

    CoolCanucks Blog Contest – tazzyTotes™ Review & Giveaway!!CLOSED

    Saturday, May 29th, 2010

    tazzy

     

    Because reusable bags only reduce waste when you use them, they made it light weight, so it’s easy to keep with you for an unex­pected errand!

    tazzy­Totes™ bags rock!!

    tazzy­Totes™ was born from a desire to do the right thing while at the same time, get­ting rid of all the plas­tic bags! These eco friendly gro­cery pro­duce tote bags are made of com­pact poly­ester mesh and are 100% recyclable!

    I love these lit­tle pro­duce bags! No more need to use all of those plas­tic bags from the gro­cery store that are hor­ri­ble for our environment!

    There is one sim­ple action we can all take that will have an enor­mous impact on the health of our planet and its inhab­i­tants. The next time you shop, don’t leave the store car­ry­ing a plas­tic bag. If every­one did this, one of the most lethal pol­luters cre­ated by man would be removed from circulation.

    Con­sider the Fol­low­ing Shock­ing Facts About Plas­tic Shop­ping Bags:

    • Plas­tic bags are made of polyethylene
    • Poly­eth­yl­ene is a petro­leum product
    • Pro­duc­tion con­tributes to air pol­lu­tion and energy consumption
    • Four to five tril­lion plas­tic bags are man­u­fac­tured each year
    • Amer­i­cans use over 380 bil­lion poly­eth­yl­ene bags per year
    • Amer­i­cans throw away approx­i­mately 100 bil­lion poly­eth­yl­ene bags per year
    • Of those 100 tril­lion plas­tic bags, 1% are recycled
    • It takes 1000 years for poly­eth­yl­ene bags to break down
    • As poly­eth­yl­ene breaks down, toxic sub­stances leach into the soil and enter the food chain
    • Approx­i­mately 1 bil­lion seabirds and mam­mals die per year by ingest­ing plas­tic bags
    • Plas­tic bags are often mis­taken as food by marine mam­mals. 100,000 marine mam­mals die yearly by eat­ing plas­tic bags.
    • These ani­mals suf­fer a painful death, the plas­tic wraps around their intestines or they choke to death
    • Plas­tic bag choke landfills
    • Plas­tic bags are car­ried by the wind into forests, ponds, rivers, and lakes

     

    tazzy­Totes™ are not only eco-friendly, they are eco-chic to boot! What more could one ask for?

     

    You can win a set of pro­duce bags thanks to the very kind and gen­er­ous folks over at tazzy­Totes™! One very lucky Cool­Canucks reader will win a set of these phe­nom­e­nal pro­duce bags which includes 3 large pro­duce bags, 1 small pro­duce bag, and one Go-Green Marker! SWEET!!

     

    To Enter:

    Manda­tory Entry – ***This is a MUST!! Those who don’t ful­fill the very first entry will be dis­qual­i­fied! Also, any com­ments such as ‘enter me’ or ‘love to win’ will be deleted.***
