Reduce WaterWeek Review & Giveaway

Anyone who visits me here regularly probably knows that I have myself a small collection of reusable water bottles. Quite honestly with 5 of us, it never seems to be enough. On days where we are heading out, the last moments before departure you will find me frantically filling up reusable bottles with water and then making a mad dash out the door. I'm sure it drives my husband crazy. There has to be a better way to do this, right? Well, there is, and I can't believe it never occurred to me before. Pre-filled, pre-chilled bottles of water!

The smart people over at Reduce have come up with the WaterWeek system to make grabbing your bottles of water easy and fast.


Reduce makes attractive and innovative eco-friendly products that are designed to help you “reduce” your impact on the environment, also referred to as your “carbon footprint”. Our products help you solve simple everyday problems, with the added intention of doing something good for our environment along the way.

We produce a wide variety of water bottles and accessories, making it easy to ditch the disposables! Reduce WaterWeek, our popular 5-bottle set that comes in a handy frig tray, makes it easy and convenient to grab a chilled water bottle whenever you need it. By not purchasing wasteful disposable water bottles, we save our landfills, use less energy and save hundreds of dollars a year in the process!

WaterWeek™ offers the ONLY true solution to end the costly and wasteful purchasing of bottled water without giving up convenience. Just fill, chill & go!™
~ Saves consumers an average of $500 per year!
~ Includes fridge tray that slides neatly into your fridge.
~ Dishwasher and freezer safe.
Reduce sent me a WaterWeek set in Naturals to test out. Now these bottles are made of plastic but they are both BPA free and phthalates free. The first thing I did was wash these out since the inside did have a plasticy smell. WaterWeek bottles are dishwasher safe which makes it nice and easy to clean them. If you choose to wash by hand I would recommend using a bottle brush of some sort to get in the narrow neck. Once I had them cleaned and rinsed, I filled them up with water and then put them in the tray and into my fridge.



Let me quickly say here that I actually cleaned my refrigerator in order to do this review. I certainly did not want to post pictures of my filthy fridge for the world to see! It has not looked this clean and organized in years! Now the bottles and the tray are nice and slim so they fit very nicely inside the fridge without taking up too much room. There are 5 bottles included in the set; one for every work/school day. Just fill them up on Sunday night and you are good to go for the week. I'm hoping I can get my husband to use these since he is the lone bottled water culprit in our house. Want smaller bottles to put in your child's lunch box everyday? Try one of the kids' WaterWeek sets!

  1. Those bottle are so cool and much cheaper than I expected. I love the idea of having them filled and waiting in the fridge for me to just grab and go. I think I'd even pick up some of the stainless steel bottles for that price.
