drinking from plastic...better alternative!

This doesn't seem natural to me! I do not like drinking from plastic and have began thinking about how I can be more responsible in this area. Especially with my little ones and sippy cups. I bought a used stainless steel portable cup from a garage sale awhile back...but I put it in the dishwasher and ruined it. Anyway, I am too cheap to buy a $10 cup from the store (that I am not sure how long it will last)...so I am still drinking from plastic portables. But, I ran across these online (diaperswappers.com) the other day http://www.kleankanteen.com/ . People there just rave about them. They seem very nice and sturdy...and they even have some with sippy lids! So now I am trying to find mamas to trade with me on diaperswappers so that I don't have to actually spend $ on them! How cheap am I?! No one seems to want to part with them...so I may try to sell some stuff to raise the $. Anyway, food for thought! I think we drink from and eat off of plastic too much! It can't be good for us.

Another option is SIGG bottles. These are good for older children and adults. They come in awesome prints and different sizes. They are made from food-grade aluminum.

I found your blog through diaper swappers, by the way! You can check out my blog too. http://keithandstacey.blogspot.com
