Badger Love

Sent in from Jentri Jollimore (& everyone at Badger!) in Gilsum, New Hampshire

The Badgers love our Lifefactory bottles! It's part of Badger Balm's company culture to only use reusable bottles, cups, mugs, plates, and flatware whenever possible. So if you take a tour of Badger HQ in Gilsum, NH you'll see one on practically everyone's desk! Here's a few of us showing off our assorted styles. Love, the Badger Balm family.

Always with me…always!!!

My boss and his wife found these on a road trip and fell in love with them. I thought he was ridiculous when he was telling me how he loved it and his water tastes so much better. He gave me one...I was amazed, from the very first sip. We love the brand so much, our business now sells them, strictly for the opportunity to let others share in our awe. My bottle comes with me everywhere, yoga in the mornings, work all day, any where I go it is with me. I never miss an opportunity to tell others just how amazing they are. Who ever thought you could fall in love with a bottle...but you can and you do!

I don’t leave home without it

My mom gave me my first Lifefactory water bottle in 2007 and I've been using one daily ever since. I've bought different sizes in different colors over the years to match my day's activities and what will fit into the purse I've decided to use. It's important to me to drink clean filtered water during the day and these bottles help me do that. (I have a water filter at home.) Plastic bottles are wasteful and make water taste terrible. Finally, Lifefactory bottles look nice, and the wide mouth make it easy to drink from and also to clean. Great product that I cannot do without!

Safe, secure bottle to keep hydrated at work

Work at an emergency room as a RN. Use my 4oz Lifefactory bottle to bring heavy cream to work for my coffee and the 9oz with the flat lid to drink my green smoothies from and coffee from. Everybody likes my bottles. I do too.

Finally Met “The One”

Sent in from Tracy Geagan in Cleveland, OH

Each time I would buy a new sippy cup or trainer cup for my kids I would have flashbacks to my single and dating days, "Will this be 'The One' or just end up like all the others and be another disappointment?" I have spent a sickening amount on money on sippy cups and novelty cups over the past 4 years... And don't even get me started on the aggravation that has come with trying to disassemble and reassemble them. I'm pretty certain you need a rocket science degree to properly do so... Or at least a full night's rest, of which I have neither. On an impromptu shopping trip to our local health food store, I finally found "The One." Lifefactory! (Interesting sidenote: I also met my husband while randomly grocery shopping). I bought two of the pink 12 oz sizes with a cautiously optimistic attitude to it's potential success. When I tried them out on my girls (Ages 2 and 4) I was blown away with how instant of a success they were! My daughters both drank all 12 oz within a couple of hours and drank even more when I refilled them. No nagging, prodding or bribing needed! Back in our sippy cup days, I couldn't even get them to drink 6 oz in a day! Thinking this might be a fluke, I filled them up the next day and, again, was so pleased with how much water my girls drank. They now go with us everywhere we go: Ballet, the library, trips to Grammy's, etc. We have been completely converted (my husband and I are proud owners of the 22 oz sizes) and I can't wait to get our sippy cup castoffs to Goodwill! Thank-you for finally being "The One."
