I had the opportunity to review the penguin Soda Maker!
About The Penguin Soda Maker:
The Penguin is the first and only soda maker with glass carafes; It's an eye catcher in every kitchen and dining room. Among the Penguin features are: customized carbonation level, easy to clean, automatic access gas release mechanism and minimal space usage on counter tops.
The Penguin Starter kit came with:
•Penguin Sparkling Water & Soda Machine
•2 60 liter Carbonators
•2 Penguin Glass Carafes
How Does Soda Stream Help The Environment:
"SodaStream is an "Active Green" product, meaning that consumers are actively reducing their CO2 footprint every time they make soda or sparkling water at home instead of buying it from the store. The more the system is used on a daily basis, the more CO2 footprint the user actively saves. (This differs from "Passive Green" products, which use green-friendly production processes, but their products are not inherently helping the consumers save on their daily footprint.)
Because SodaStream uses water straight from the tap, the system makes traditional store-bought beverage bottles obsolete. That means less plastic manufactured, less plastic waste is created, and fewer bottled beverages must be transported from manufacturers to distributors to stores to homes.
Globally, 206 billion liters of bottled water were consumed in 2008 (Zenith International Global Bottled Water Report, 2008). The energy required to make water bottles in the US only, is equivalent to 17 million barrels of oil (Container Recycling Institute, 2002).
According to the US Recycling Institute, more than 80% of bottles in the US do not get recycled and end up in landfills. Also, an estimated 4.7 million tons of greenhouse gas emissions were produced in the process of replacing the 134 billion bottles and cans not recycled in 2005."
I also received a full size bottle of Grape soda mix,
2 soda mix variety(12 pack),
and My Water Flavor Essence Variety 3 pack.
The Soda has less calories, less carbs,less sugar, less sodium, and less caffeine!
All SodaStream regular sodamix uses a mixture of Splenda® and sugar. Diet flavors are sugar-free, sweetened with Splenda® brand sweetener
This machine is very easy to use and I LOVE IT!.
The Soda mix come in an economy sized bottle and makes about 12 litters which is 33 cans.
Sodamix shelf life
When ordering sodamix, we recommend ordering an amount that you will comfortably consume within 3-4 months.
Sodamix bottles feature a "best before" date which relates to optimal taste. Rest assured that sodamix can safely be consumed well beyond this “best before” date, however peak taste is ensured by consuming prior to this date. Sodamix will typically arrive at your home with about 3-4 months remaining prior to the “best before” date, therefore please order no more than a 3-4 month supply of sodamix.
