Products Nannies Love: WaterGeeks Filtered Water Bottles!

Product Review Sunday for Nannies and Au Pairs

Earlier this year we posted the bottled water scorecard from the Environmental Working Group. The highest grade (an A) and only type of water to get the highest grade is filtered water. Click here to see dangers of bottled water and how your bottled water measures up.

That's why for this Product Review Sunday we recommend the WaterGeeks Pure Blue Filtered Bottle! These portable, stainless steel bottles come in a variety of fun colors. Best of all, they're equipped with a water filter. That means the kids can refill their water bottles easily during the day without worry of contaminants.

The filter effectively removes Chromium 6, heavy metals, chlorine, VOCs and other potential tap water contaminants as you drink. Can you imagine how helpful that is if you are camping this summer?

They aren't made of plastic so there's no BPA and they are reusable so won't be littering the land fills with plastic containers. Even better, you cannot believe how much better tap water tastes with the filter!

Have you tried portable, reusable, filtered water bottles yet?

I was seeing these (not these in particular but portable water bottles with filters in them) on tv commercials and wondered if they were worth trying. Now I will definitely give a try. What a great resource you are for us.

I have tried a few- and sad to say, I don't like the way the water tastes from any of them.

I know it's bad to re-use a plastic water bottle- especially one that has been in a hot car or to freeze a plastic water bottle and then drink from it- but that's what I do sometimes.

Anonymous, I'd say at least don't let the kids you care for do it. Make them drink filtered water! :)

Just got the Brita one at Target about $10 each!

Eva- not to worry- I always take their sippy cups out- which are filled with filtered water from their home fridge. It's a matter of finding a water bottle that I like.

Water bottles are just made for the little chubby kids I think. They must drink the filtered water.We must care for them as they can't care themselves.
