    How do you sodake ?

    Meh. My PC comes with Recycle Bin included. No extra cost.

    Does each Sodastream machine sold really reduce 2000 bottles a year from going to landfill?

      Doesn't that depend on how many soda bottles you would normally buy/use? I've probably used mine 100/year. Big families could use much more often.

      Maybe in countries that don't have recycling?

      In some states, 2000 used drink bottles will earn you $200 when you return them. You'd have to be a non-OzBargainer to throw that away!

        Recycling still generates green house gases - requiring power to break the plastic down and rebuild it into something else. Then there is all the transport required to move the original water with bubbles from plant to retail, then from your place to the recycling plant, to the remanufacturing plant. Recycling helps but isn't the best solution. The best solution is to use less and products like soda stream definitely help.

        Edit: but in answer to the previous question, yes agree with you re the return cashback.

          I agree with you, I have been checking the origin of some things when I go shopping. Coles' cheapest water crackers come from Europe! How insane is that!

          And all of that is still less greenhouse gas than making a new one.

        Friend, It's not asif we actually recycle most of our plastics anyway. Since the Chinese/ Malaysian bans on importing plastic our local infrastructure hasn't adapted well, so in me eyes at least the best solution is not to use in the first place. That's another reason to support glass and aluminium contaners instead (plus they don't generate microplastics).

          I don't think glass gets recycled

          Agreed. We used to recycle much of the plastic here in Australia, but now there's just too much of it. I personally prefer to drink plain tap water, from a ceramic coffee mug. Even though it's Brisbane water, which rates poorly on taste.

          I just wish there was a good way to add a bit of flavour to tap water, without adding sugar or artificial sweeteners (e.g. cordial).

          Coca cola recycles plastic here in AU. They're moving to full recycled plastic use. There are groups in QLD that take found plastic and break it down into a filament like substance to make new products. It's not a 100% conversion but pretty good from my research.

            @wolfshooter:

            Coca cola … moving to full recycled plastic use.

            Do you have a link for that? It's surprising, because I thought food regulations banned having recycled materials in contact with food, due to the possibility of contamination. I recall reading about bottles where the outer layer was recycled, but they had an inner "skin" of non-recycled plastic.

            Kudos to Coca Cola if they achieve it!

            edit: never mind, I found it.

            “Our landmark transition to use 100 per cent recycled plastic in bottles began with Mount Franklin Still Pure Australian Spring Water in 2018. Following extensive research and development, this will now roll out across other brands in bottles 600 millilitre and under, across Coca-Cola’s soft drink, water and juice products,” Mr West said.

      well 2000 bottles a year would be 38 a week..

      I go through around 2L a day in my family, which would be around 15L a week.. if each bottle is 500ml then that's 30L a week.

      but of course - we aren't using 500ml plastic bottles every single time - so whilst i'm sure there's some out there that use more water and more plastic bottles than me, on the law of averages, i'm calling bullshit.

      if we didn't have the machine I don't think i'd be drinking as much sparkling water..
