Back to School with Cheeki Stainless Steel Water Bottles ~ {Giveaway}

I know there has been a lot of talk about plastic water bottles and BPA does concern me. I am pleased to know that my cheeky boys will be starting school with Cheeki.

Since having seen the very popular Cheeki stainless steel water bottles , I've had my eye on buying a few.

I have tried to keep my kids on the right path to good hydration by giving them water - but they hate drinking 'warm' water while we are out & about or road-tripping . I'd rather not buy cold water ( or worse) when we go out - just why is water so expensive ? - not anymore with Cheeki  !

Awesome facts I like about Cheeki
  • Children's {all actually} stainless steel water bottles are eco-friendly, safe to drink from and painted with non-toxic inks. Lots of bright kids designs ( including ABC favourites and attractive girl/boy/teen designs) !
  • Cheeki lids are BPA free made out of Polypropylene (also known as PP) with a Silicone washer.
  • The bottles are made from Pure Grade 304 (18/8) stainless steel - there are no linings and they will not leach chemicals.
  • They have insulated neoprene pouches {& even carry straps} that fit snugly and are not bulky. We tested them out and the water was as cold to taste 5 hrs later as when I filled it. Perfect for long , hot school days.They do last 8hrs apparently.
  • Replacements are available for twist sports caps , Screw caps ! So you don't have to replace the whole drink bottle. The lids are interchangeable.
  • 350ml, 500ml, 600ml,750ml and 1L sizes ...for thirsty little camels
  • The sports bottles have special flip up lids and fast flow instead of screw cap. 
  • My 5 yr olds managed getting the lids open/closed well - so hopefully I won't have leaks in the school bag.

The single walled bottles are designed for cold liquids only and cannot be frozen ( Trust me I lost a S/S bottle last year that was accidentally frozen - it bulged out at the bottom ,then cracked open) . 

Cheeki have products for everyone in the family. They have unique insulated bottles which are a vacuum sealed double walled bottle, they will keep the content hot or cold for 12 hours.

I love the look of their Stainless Steel Insulated Coffee mugs {I want to get one for my tea : when I have to rush out the door , to get to school on time - so I can have it in the car ) or maybe a flask}. Plastic coffee / tea tastes terrible !!

Those of you who use Fitness shakes will love the Cheeki Protein shakers which even come with a blending ball for lump free mixes and are unique to the market !

For mums with bubs using bottles- 

Cheeki make a range of BPA free - 280ml baby bottles too that are durable and hygienic - bacteria cannot form on the inside or outside of the bottle and it will not break down like plastic. Shatter-proof and with embosed markings, they contain no linings and will not leach chemicals.Painted with non-toxic inks too.

We were fortunate to receive 1 x 350ml kids and 500ml water bottle with insulated pouches to review.
I plan to buy more they are very reasonably priced and online you can buy duo/trio gift packs.

It is important to me that Cheeki products are fully recyclable, unlike plastic bottles which harm our environment and create landfill ... I was gob smacked !
It takes 1000 years for just ONE plastic bottle to decompose. That bottle you bought when you were 12? Yes, it's still in landfill and will be there for many generations to come.
Did you know Cheeki are also happy to support school fundraising - check their website for details.

Now I know you can't wait to try Cheeki water bottles so I have 2 x $25 gift certificates for an online purchase to giveaway . Perfect for the lucky winners to choose a Cheeki product that suits them !
