On collecting a 10-kilo carbon dioxide cylinder from our local BOC supplier the other day I did a quick calculation as to how many litres of fizzy water this cylinder would produce. A very interesting calculation as my guess is about a thousand dollars worth.
A bottle of soda water from a supermarket will set you back around two dollars a litre and at a guess 15 kilos of carbon dioxide at a cost of about 50 dollars makes each bottle worth just a few cents. But that’s not the point of this Great Green Idea, althought you can expect to save about a thousand dollars on your fizzy soft drinks you will also save hundreds of kilos in plastic bottles.
Overall you would have to have rocks in your head not to adopt this fantastic idea which is based on a simple soda stream refilling system combined with a simple little fitting (Email us for more info) which allows you to refill the soda stream bottles.
Even without this fitting your bottle of soda water will still only cost a fraction of the retail shelf cost from the retailer but if you refill your own CO2 bottles the cost is reduced to almost zero… Well to about 2 cents a litre. Compared to two dollars a litre for off the shelf products.
Now that’s Great!
