Review: Cool Gear To-Go Coffee Cup & EZ-Freeze Pure Water Bottle

EZ-Freeze Pure Water Bottle

24oz bottle

I needed to implement something into my diet so that I would drink more water. I absolutely DESPISE tap water, especially where I live. I can take the chemicals and chlorine in it, so I don’t drink it.

If I drank water, it’d be bottled water. I not only feel bad for continuously throwing plastic bottles out (when I’m out and about and have no recycling bin), but buying cases of water can get pretty expensive after awhile.

When I seen that Cool Gear had an amazing water bottle that not only filters out the taste of the chlorine and chemicals, but it comes with a freeze stick that can keep your water fresh and cold even longer!

I had absolutely no issues with this at all. You can take the stick (the blue thing you see inside the cup in the picture above) and put it in the freezer. When you’re ready to head out the door, grab the freeze stick- put it back in the bottle, fill it up with water, and wa-lah INSTANTLY cold water.

I love that when we go somewhere in the car- I can bring this for the kids. I know that they’re hydrated, there are no spills, and they have clean water without chemicals. The plastic is BPA free, so it’s completely safe.

Filters up to 100 gallons of water (approximately 4+ months
depending on usage). So not only is it saving me money, but I don’t have to drink from plastic! There replacement filters available as well.!

I can put this in my purse without it spilling! Even when the bottle is tipped sideways, so that’s a MAJOR plus. As a mom, I already have to carry my stuff, the kids stuff, and hold their hands when we are walking to car- so I wouldn’t have had room if I would have had to pack this!

I also love that this will fit in my car cup holder. Many water bottles won’t do this and my drink ends up either being between my legs or some place I know I can reach while driving. I give this a two thumbs up!

Coffee Travel Mug 15 oz.

15oz Coffee Mug with Graphics purple

Coffee is my go-to drink. I LOVE coffee! Whether it’s steaming hot, cold, iced, or frozen- I do it. I can’t get my morning started without it. Now that Aidan started school, I needed something that I could take with me to drop him off in the mornings!

I like going to coffee shops and such, but the thought of throwing away so many different variety of cups, some which don’t break down all the way makes me feel bad. The best way to eliminate throwing so may cups away is to go eco.

Buying a regular coffee mug wasn’t for me. I wanted something that was insulated so that my coffee would stay warm. Although I LIKE drinking cold coffee, I don’t like drinking my HOT coffee that’s turned cold. If I want it cold, I’ll buy it that way!

Not only is this insulated, but it’s double wall insulated so my coffee stays extra hot Winking smile Love it! It’s such a PRETTY cup. I love that they offer not only 4 different colors (green, black, pink or purple), but each color has a different design on it.

The top is easy to flip back and drink out of, and it doesn’t spill all down my shirt when I take a drink. I can’t feel the hotness of the coffee through the cup, which is a huge plus.

It is completely BPA free, so the plastic isn’t made with any chemicals. It is very easy to wash with your hands (the cup is wide enough for my hand to fit in with a washcloth) or it’s top shelf dishwasher safe. I don’t have a dishwasher, so I love that I can easily fit my hand inside all the way to the bottom without having to stick a spoon inside the cup on top of the washcloth to get the bottom clean.

I love the design and the fact I can run around in the morning after dropping my son off at school and don’t have to go without coffee. This was invented for me, I think. Winking smile For all you moms looking for another alternative- I just found a really great one!

Both of these products would make very awesome Christmas gifts or Stocking stuffers for someone you love. If you know a coffeeholic get them the travel coffee mug! If you know someone who complains about tap water the EZ freeze bottle would be perfect!
