Sometimes a big idea comes from a little source.
As an assignment in her 5th grade class, Erin, an 11 year old girl, was asked to design a product that might better the world. Erin invented SipSavers™, earth-friendly tags that grow.
SipSavers™ are tags used to personalize and identify a water or other drink bottle.
They come in many different shapes and colors. Simply choose the SipSavers™ design and color that best suits you, and slip the latex-free, photo-degradable band over the bottleneck.
What makes SipSavers™ unique is that the tags are biodegradable, and each is embedded with wildflower seeds. When you're done with your drink, simply tear your SipSaver™ from its band, and soak it in water overnight. Then cover the SipSaver™ with a thin layer of soil, and keep it moist until seedlings are well established.
Please help Erin Save the Bottle, and Save the World™.
