Check out my Greensender water bottle giveaway!
Every year my sister and I struggle over what to get my Dad for Father’s Day. We always go through the same dance when that day draws near. You know the familiar ” should we get him clothes?” My sister then replies, ” he doesn’t need any clothes.” We go through this question and answer period for a few minutes and always draw the same conclusion. He has everything. So, what do you get a Dad that has everything or something that is at least useful other than a tie or shirt?
How about a Greensender personalized water bottle with a logo of his favorite past-time such as fishing or golf? Now, there is a gift that is good for your health as well as the planet. Don’t you remember health class where the teacher would drum it into our heads that you should drink at least eight glasses of water a day? But why is having your own water bottle good for the planet? According to the Clean Air Council, Americans throw away 2.5 million water bottles hourly. Shocking, isn’t it?
So how do you order? Head on over to the bottle shop, where you can choose the color of your bottle, size, and whether you want a name on the bottle as well as the font type. Maybe you want the golf image like the bottle shown above? There are 20 different images to choose from. Don’t see one you like and have one that you would like to use, just contact the company.
What I love about Greensender is the ease in ordering your own personalized bottle. Just a few clicks and your personalized bottle is done. The cost the bottles are as follows: $18 for 17 ounce bottle, $22 for the 20 ounce bottle and $25 for the 34 ounce bottle. If you want to personalize it, there is an additional $3 charge. Want artwork? Add another $3. Since BYOB in the form of your own water bottle is so vogue these days, it pays to have it personalized so no one else can claim your bottle.
Concerned about the bottle? Each bottle is a durable aluminum Sigg bottle. According to the Company, Sigg bottles are the number one brand of reusable water bottles in the world. For more information about these bottle, see here.
Greensender is not just about the water bottles. Check out their other products: Mini G Deluxe Baby Gift Package (starting off on the right green foot…), Campus green college care package, and Company and Event gift packages.
With all the water bottles out there, why Greensender? I have known Michael Aaron, the CEO of the Company, for over a year and really like his philosophy. Plus, he always has a smile on his face every time I see him! (Because he loves what he does. )
