I absolutely love reusable bottles, and not just because they’re eco-friendly. I’ve noticed that when people (especially kids) drink out of disposable bottles, they always tend to waste the last bit in the bottle. So in addition to creating waste by using a disposable bottle, they’re also wasting money by not finishing the drink they purchased. And of course, the disposable bottles beverage itself is always absurdly overpriced on top of that!
But with reusable bottles getting more and more popular all the time, I don’t have to be bugged by disposable bottles anymore. And recently, I got the chance to review a fantastic new reusable stainless steel bottle from Kid Basix. The Safe Sporter isn’t the standard reusable bottle. It’s designed to be the most convenient and useful bottle a child will ever own. So when I got the chance to review the Safe Sporter for myself, I was thrilled.
The brilliance of this stainless steel bottle is in its details. From the non-slip rubber bottom of the cup that helped to minimize spills to the band of insulating rubber around the stainless steel bottle itself that ensured little hands could hold it easily and wouldn’t be chilled by an icy beverage inside, the intelligent design really made this bottle a pleasure to use.
The Safe Sporter comes in a 12 oz. and a 16 oz. size and while the bigger size is perfect for water during sporting events or travel, I decided to choose the 12 oz. size in Blue for Zackary because it was the perfect size to hold juice at pre-Kindergarten.
I really dislike giving Zackary juice boxes at school, party because I know that he doesn’t always remember to throw the box in the school’s recycling bin and partly because I know he doesn’t always finish them. I had tried putting juice in Zackary’s pervious stainless steel bottle, but the open mouth of the bottle didn’t make it ideal for school and the large size meant that juice sometimes got forgotten and went to waste.
I definitely didn’t have that problem with the Safe Sporter! This bottle combines the best of all possible worlds with its ingenious top. The bottle features a wide mouth so that it’s easy to clean when it’s dirty and easy to add an ice cube to when the day is hot. Then, the screw-on top with a convenient pull-top spout makes drinking easy and mess-free for even the youngest children. As the icing on the cake, a handy cover flips over the spout to keep it clean no matter how much the bottle gets tossed around in a backpack.
Zackary loved the Safe Sporter and what he really seemed to appreciate was the handy top. He had no problem opening the pull-top and drinking from the bottle and, as I had guessed, the size of the bottle was absolutely perfectly anytime Zackary needed juice for a snack or a lunch away from home.
Kid Basix also offers the incredibly popular Safe Sippy and Safe Sippy 2 bottles, eco-friendly sippy cups that feature the same attention to detail and convenience as the Safe Sporter. The company even has an ingenious eco-friendly stainless steel baby bottle called the Safe Starter!
I was really impressed by how well thought out the bottles from Kid Basix were, and after seeing how much Zackary loves the Safe Sporter I’m sure a Safe Sippy for Benjamin is in our future! If you want a reusable bottle that your child will absolutely love using, the Kid Basix Safe Sporter is for you. And the spill preventing, easy to clean design will mean that you’ll love it too!
