Spurn the Bottle

Liquid containers that don’t get tossed (as well as a few other water-related items).


Mayor Bloomberg’s edict to forgo (expensive, unfluoridated, landfill-clogging) bottled water is easy to follow; our taps produce delicious water, fresh from the Catskills. But what about carbonation?

Carroll St., Crown Heights; 718-756-9840) makes seltzer from tap water; fill the kit’s reusable plastic bottles, snap them into the holster, and pump a button several times until your beverage is good and bubbly (kids, particularly, love the burpy sound it makes).
