It was that easy….even a could do it! ~Melody

Why I Choose Corn Plastic Water Bottles for My Family

Corn Plastic Water BottlesI am a concerned mom looking for an alternative to plastic water bottles.

There is so much information about the possibility of bpa (bisphenol-A) leaching that I want to be on the safe side and find a bpa free water bottle that I can be confident is a healthy choice for my family.

According to my research. Corn Plastic Water bottles are a great alternative to plastic water bottles.

The corn plastic bottle comes with a filter that actually turns my tap water into safe drinking water for my kids.

The filter is reusable up to 90 times and the bottle biodegrades after 80 days! What a great way to teach my children about recycling and doing our part, while at the same time enjoying fresh, safe drinking water!
