Happy Earth Monday! Win an Eco-Friendly KOR ONE Hydration Vessel

I try to celebrate Earth Day every single day, so here at Babbling Brooke, we are partying with Mother Earth all week long.  And today, I want to give one reader the chance to make a change for the better.  In my post Thursday, I suggested that we all switch from plastic water bottles to reusable water bottles.  Take that step - and do it stylishly.

This is the KOR ONE Hydration Vessel:


How cool is that?
This bottle makes a statement - it says that you are healthy, committed to the environment, and stylish.

The KOR ONE Hydration Vessel made with Eastman Tritan, which is a durable, BPA-free polymer that resists staining, is odor and taste-free, is safe to use with hot liquids, and can handle freezing.  Personally, I despise opening up a water bottle only to have that plastic or metallic taste in my water (and that smell too).  I have been using the KOR ONE for the past week and there are no odors, tastes, or stains.  The water I put into my KOR ONE comes out tasting like water - and I like that.


Another thing I noticed about the KOR ONE Hydration Vessel is the spout.  The top of the bottle is smooth - not ridged - because of the way the lid is designed.  So it doesn't feel like you are drinking from a garden hose!  The top is large enough for ice cubes, but not so big that it is hard to drink from.

There are also messages hidden in the lid.  The KOR ONE comes with 4 different water resistant 'Stones', but you can always create your own mantra to keep inside!


But KOR ONE's lid is what really impressed me.  Instead of coming off completely (hence why I have so many bottles without lids hanging around), the lid flips back.  All you need to do is press the button on the front and the entire lid swings back, making it easy to drink from because you're not worrying about untwisting and then hanging onto a lid.  


On top of the lid is a handle.  This is how I found myself carrying the KOR ONE when I went hiking.  It was very easy to hold and there is no way this container is opening up unless you press the button.  It locks tight - and with absolutely no leaks.

The KOR ONE Hydration Vessel has a smooth, rubber cushioned bottom.  This keeps it very stable on tables and desks.  It is also very durable.  The streamlined shape makes it easy and comfortable to hold and drink from.


Like the KOR ONE, the KOR family takes a well-designed approach to protecting our environment.  The KOR ONE is designed to last for many, many years: "we are inherently more sustainable than commodity products that quickly end up in landfills."  And when a KOR ONE has reached the end of its useable life, it can be returned, postage-free, to KOR, who will recycle these responsibly.  Also, 1% of all sales are donated to non-profit groups that work to protect and sustain our water through KOR's Thirst for Giving foundation.  All KOR ONE Hydration Vessels are manufactured in North America, resulting in a smaller carbon footprint.  They believe in a "Better Me, Better World" approach.

The KOR ONE has been featured in national Geographic Adventure, cnet, CBS, NBC, Outside Magazine, and The New York Times, among other publications.  It has a lot of people talking.

Want to get your own KOR ONE Hydration Vessel?  
Visit Korwater.com and check out the different colors and designs available.  The Hydration Vessel comes in Ice BlueSawgrass GreenSunrise Orange, and Orchid Pink, as well as in four special edition designs in those same colors.  The KOR ONE can be purchased for $29.95 for the original four color or $35 for one of the four new designs ($5 from the sale of each of the design bottles goes to KOR's Thirst for Giving foundation - in addition to the 1% donated from each sale).

I was so excited when I got the KOR ONE because it is such a new, cool, SMART design.  It is easy to use and makes a great statement (I have had so many people comment on my "really cool bottle" and ask where I got it).  I have been using it everywhere I go (and even at home!).  I'm excited to give one of my readers the chance to have one of their own.

I want one of these so bad. But I currently can't justify the price as I'm jobless. But if I don't win this contest, I might just treat myself to this when I do get a job.
