Vessel Drinkware: Bottoms up for reusable! (Review & Giveaway)

Some areas of our house resemble haphazard breeding grounds.  When my back is turned or my attention compromised, the inadvertent multiplying occurs.  The leftovers accumulate in the back of the fridge.  The “too small” toddler clothes settle to the bottom of the dresser drawers and crowd out the wearable items on top.  What was once a purse that housed only a wallet and cell-phone is suddenly a random collection of pens, pencils, gum wrappers, wheelie cars, sippy cup lids and a whole conglomeration of other goodies.

And, then there are the reusable water bottles.  I don’t know where they come from or how they appear so fast, but a collection that should only be somewhere around five or six in total can blossom overnight into two dozen bottles.  It’s a phenomenon that befuddles me.  So, it’s no surprise that when the box of Vessel Drinkware bottles arrived, I had a déjà vu of familiarity.  My recollection was no coincidence.  My latest stand-by bottle was picked up in a goodie bag at Jacob’s summer work barbeque and stamped on the bottom was “VESSEL DRINKWARE”.   Before I even knew I was officially “reviewing” Vessel Drinkware they’d already captured my heart.

Vessel Drinkware is a Seattle-based company (woo hoo! for local!) and they make every kind of reusable drinking vessel you can imagine.  Stainless steel and glass (gotta love it!) water bottles.  Stainless steel thermal coffee cups.  Porcelain to-go cups with silicone lids.  Plastic cups accessorized with a straw for cold drinks.  Every single item in the product line is reusable (a.k.a. drastically reduces unnecessary landfill waste!) and is so fashion friendly.

The day that the box from Vessel Drinkware arrived, my mother and brother were over for dinner and eagerly jumped at the opportunity to help me unpack it.  What began as oohing and aahing quickly morphed into vulture-like grabbiness.  Even Tucker (our dog!) started begging when we unwrapped the K9 bottle that is just for him!  Once I had fought off the hounds I could divvy up what was left.  I have taken the acrylic tumbler to work and it sits at my desk during the week so it can be refilled with water from the jug in my closet.  It’s an attractive accessory on my desk and often receives compliments from staff who are swinging in to sign off paperwork or drop off projects.

Vessel Drinkware has expertly combined style, quality and eco-friendliness into an extensive line of drinkware.  And, it’s just the cherry on top that it’s local to our hometown of the Pacific Northwest!
