>I recently attended The Baby Show for Trade and was pleased to be working within the ‘Innovation Zone’. There was some amazing products on show, and one of them was the ECOTanka. They have an amazing range of Stainless Steel water bottles. But what makes ECOTanka so different from your everyday metal water bottle?
Here ECOTanka tell us why they are different:
ECOtanka is a New Zealand company and their products are manufactured in China. One of our concerns is that the products we handle are fair and ethically sourced. We were both assured and impressed when we discovered that a co-founder for ECOtanka lives in China and monitors the factory for both work conditions and manufacturing standards. He has installed ECOtankas own independent quality control section within the factory to ensure not only is ECOtanka a premium product designed to last but that it is also having a positive impact on the workers who produce it
ECOtankas are made from 18/8 food grade stainless steel so they are a clean and hygienic bottle which will not taint the contents in any way. So many bottles are made of plastics or have liners that break down and contaminate their contents. This can have health implications and taint the taste of the drinks. ECOtanka are designed to offer a product that can be used with confidence by anyone without fear of contamination.
ECOtankas are designed as both a health product and to be kind to the environment. So many other bottles look great to start with but do not stand the test of time and within 6 months, they are in landfill as they are made of inferior or thinner grade stainless steel which can rust or buckle. ECOtanka are made to be robust and resilient, yet being a steel product can easily be recycled if needed. We are confident that ECOtanka is the best product of its kind available in the UK and Ireland. We are passionate about reducing waste, which is why we offer a bottle designed to last a lifetime. ECOtanka International Limited is constantly seeking innovative ways to make their bottles even better. Thus the sipper or cap part of the new Sports lid can be replaced if it gets chewed or broken without the need to replace the entire lid.
We were sent a TeenyTanka to try out for ourselves. The TeenyTanka is perfect for babies. I can see your shocked faces right now, but let me tell you why. They come with a special adapter which allows you to use an Avent Magic Toddler spout. Therefore you can keep your babies juice or milk cool, and then allow them to drink it straight from the TeenyTanka. As with all the ECOTanka’s, they are all solid 304 high quality Stainless steel food grade, but of course there is no BPA involved. They come with a 1 year guarantee against faulty manufacturing so you can rest assured it is an item that won’t be binned with a few months.
Of course as your child grows up, you can use it with the standard spout, it really is an item that grows with you child. Mark took to his TeenyTanka instantly, and it has been great for taking with us when out and about as it doesn’t leak like a lot of the bottles we have experienced!
The price of a TeenyTanka is just £9.99, which is a really good price considering this is a product that will last.
