Keep the fizz, but lose the wasteful packaging and artificial chemicals by making a switch to natural and organic sodas. Organic sodas are easier to find than ever, and according to the research company Research and Markets, the organic beverage market has reached $1.3 billion in the U.S.
Not only do organic sodas have no chemical additives or sweeteners, but some companies like Santa Cruz Organic sodas also keep environmental concerns as top priority by making their sodas with 100 percent renewable energy. Their handy six-packs come in traditional flavors like Ginger Ale and Root Beer as well as refreshing Orange Mango and Raspberry Lemonade.
Other top natural sodas like Izze, Steaz, and White Rock are also made in glass bottles, which are widely accepted at recycling centers and are generally cheaper and easier to recycle than plastic bottles. Also, glass bottles can be recycled repeatedly, and are often manufactured in a less harmful way than plastic.
For those who need a little extra power to keep up with today’s fast-paced world, try switching from Red Bull to an organic alternative. For an all-natural pick-me-up, try Steaz Energy, a new organic and fair-trade energy drink that can fuel your busy life with 80 mg of caffeine. Guaranteed to give you a buzz, these organic drinks are made with Fair Trade Certified ceylon green tea and without the high fructose corn syrup, artificial sweeteners, colors, and flavors in most energy drinks.
