Soda-Club’s drink makers are a spectacular invention that I’m sure many of you have never heard of. Not only is it a huge money saver if you drink soda, it is environmentally friendly and it helps to reduce packaging and save energy. According to Soda-Club, Americans drink more than 55 billion liters of soda and seltzer each year. That’s almost 200 liters — about 600 cans! — for every adult and child in the United States. And, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, that adds 10 1/2 cubic feet of packaging per American — over 3 billion cubic feet! — in our landfills and recycling facilities every year. The Sodastream units change this problem because there are no bottles or cans to recycle or throw away (one Sodastream bottle lasts for three years), and the highly concentrated sodamix minimizes packaging.
