My thoughts on Soda Stream

Please watch this Soda Stream Video about plastic bottle waste. It’s really interesting.

I am enthralled by the product Soda Stream. Don’t be suprised to find a post soon about us buying one. It’s just a matter of time. It would reduce our recycling by (at least) 104 two litre bottles a year. That is a very frugal estimate. My husband drinks at least 2 – 2 litres a week. Yes, yuck. The great thing about soda stream is that they use real sugar. No corn syrup. Plus, I have been testing out homemade soda syrups. I will post the recipes for the ones I have already made in the next few days. FYI homemade ginger ale… not so good.

If you have any great recipes for soda syrups let me know. I hope to rarely use the store bought kind. Even just adding a bit of juice to the carbonated water sounds pretty good.


If there’s reason for hope, it lies in man’s occasional binges of cooperation. To save our planet, we’ll need that kind of heroic effort, in which all types of people join forces for the common good – George Meyer, writer for The Simpsons

  2. Hi Stephanie

    I haven’t watched the Soda Stream video yet but I will. I the meantime, here are a couple of posts that may interest you.

    Soft drink (soda) is a special occasion treat in our home so for many years I resisted the idea of buying a Soda Stream as I felt that it would increase our consumption of carbonated drinks. We bought one several years ago and while it does not get used every week we have purchased almost no soft drink since. Even if we are going out or entertaining I use the soda water mixed with my home-made lemon cordial – tastes lust like lemon squash but I know exactly what the ingredients are and there is no waste . Win-win!!
